Hey ! 

 

I have upgraded my firmware too - 4.4.4 (build number 283)  

 

Usage of 14 Hours (2.5 hours of screen) - Wifi enabled all the time, played games, listened to songs etc, and battery left is 26%. Shows 8 hours of juice left - though I doubt that. 

 

Do the above numbers look OK ?  What was the fix/workaround being followed ? 

 

 


So the battery did died out - lasted around 18.5 hours total - with this being a weekend, it was down to almost negligible calls.   

I do understand that with the specs our phone has, it should not last longer, but I do expect atleast 1.5 days of backup I was getting before.  

 

Guys, do some tweaking around, and share if any of the workaround works.

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

Pretty sad that Sony cannot handle a simple update. Even though am a Sony fan and have Xperia ZL , i dont think i want to update 4.4.4 soon reading all these sad reviews. i feel more depressed knowing i had myself updated my wife's Moto G to 4.4.4 over the air and its working flawlessly as before.

Guess Sony needs to drop its UI customisations and add-ons  for a smoother update experience.

Has anyone complained to Sony and if they have, what answer did you get?

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

I have tinkered around, played around with settings, disabled this and that, stopped data access for almost the whole day, stopped playing games to increase battery life - but everything is making me miserable and not worth owing such a nice device. 

 

So finally, I have come down to a simple conclusion - I ENJOY my phone throughout the day, plug it in at night, and its ready for next 15 hours or so.   Wifi/Data is ON throughout, brightness at Auto/or 50%, play games when I can ...  Enough of feeling bad, and waiting for an update from Sony - which I think will never come....better still live with the fact that you'll have to charge it daily.

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

After major problems with power consumption of the 4.4.2 version I upgraded to 4.4.4 3 days ago. Now it seems to work as it did with 4.2. Before I did the 4.4.4 upgrade I had a long period with problems with 4.4.2. I also reinstalled a StockRom to 4.2, this worked perfectly and I tried the 4.4.2 again, but I got the same problems with power consumption. Now that I've upgraded to 4.4.4 it looks seemingly to operate normally, ie the same status as the 4.2. PS: I used the PC Companion, no option OTA. PS II: I now us high accuracy for positioning

Which means, as per your screenshot, approx 17/18 hours till it goes to 10% or so, right ?  If that is the case, then I am getting the same backup ...

Re: 4.4.2 and 4.4.4 problems for xperia Z,ZL and ZR

After the updating my Xperia Z to 4.4.4, I have a problem with bluetooth dropping connection to Car audio system when trying to use the phonebook.

 

I used to be able to connect via bluetooth to my car audio system, a Sony XAV 701 BT, and be able to use the phonebook, set presets on the car system from the phonebook, etc. but now as soon as I try to use the phonebook on via the Car Audion system screen, bluetooth disconnects and reconnects.

 

Also the play back volume keeps changing when playing songs from the phone via bluetooth to the same car system.

This was all working before the update to the phone.

 

Would be interested in a solution to fix these bluetooth issues.
