Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

When Marsmallow didn't have stamina I used to get 3-4 full days with no problems (only on doze). Now, with latest update I am getting almost 1 and a half day tops, with same usage, settings and apps.

 

 

It is a fact that stamina on Z1 and Z3 compact are performing better than on Z5 compact.

It 's like asking how you take a bottle of water . Depending on how much you're thirsty . In any case make sure that after upgrade you do factroy reset . In my case ( I did not use stamina and i'm getting is almost the same thing)

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

I called Sony Germany today. They don´t know when and if an update will come. They are addicted to Google. If an update is coming it will not be an original Sony Stamina Mode. It will be Google Doze again. 

The only way to get Stamina back is to downgrade to 5.1.1. They are claiming warranty will be lost but german courts decided already it will not be lost. 

You can also get a part of your money back, because it will not have the same features after an update, but without there will be security problems. It is the same like you buy an V8 Mercedes and a year later Mercedes comes, changes your engine to a normal 4 cyl.. Of course, that will not happen, but Sony does so to their Xperia Consumers regarding to Android 6.

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

If you do not unlock bootloader and just flash STOCK Lollipop firmware then everything is ok for the warranty.

From XDA you can get (most probably) the correct firmware for your region. Beside that, use flashtool.

Stamina mode

I'm sure it's been mentioned lots already but I need to mention it too - something needs to be done about stamina mode to make it more like it was before. I realise that it's a lot to do with the android system itself, but stamina mode used to be really great. Now, I can't use Chromecast, there's no vibration from Whatsapp messages, Google now doesn't work properly, etc etc. I have to switch between having it on and off in order to do many things, and with it switched off the battery will barely get to end of the day, usually not even that. Saying that the battery will last two days should be appended with a further explanation saying that this is only the case if you completely hamstring the phone.

In short, please do something to return to the greatness of the old stamina mode, it was something that made Xperia great, and something the new Xperia is sorely in need of.
