pda, what is your brightness setting you normally use? Do you use Stamina mode? What do you have enabled? Do you often use 3G network? I wish my Xperia Z last for 2 days... :/

Re: Battery drains off 2 times faster after updating to 10.1.A.1.434

azzido, my brightness is set to ~80% with auto-adjust. I don't use Stamina, I rather take a benefit of LED which says me when to wake up the phone. I have both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on all the time even in low-battery mode. Most of the time I'm in 3G covered areas (no LTE here).

I've identified apps below as main battery drainers:

- Google+ - when I had photo/video auto-upload on, the battery went down pretty fast

- Native E-Mail app connected to Exchange servers - after 2-3 weeks it started to bomb the Exchange server and the only remediation was to delete and re-create Exchange account on the phone. I started to use Touchdown from Nitrodesk instead and it's much better.

depends how much screen time you have but yes if the screen is on offten it will consume

40% of battery is exactly what it says - it could be 40% of 5% battery drain - it's all relative and quite normal, there are many htreads here on the subject, have a browse round the forum
