Sony, please respond why do we update our phones to lose even more power than before... And what can I do with a Z5 needed to be charged 2-3 times a day????

After latest nougat update (32.4.A.1.54), the doze is not functioning proper it seems. Battery is draining very fast in phone idle, battery performance was very good before that. But one small joy with this update is the phone is operating more smoothly than before. But 😢battery life is worrying me.

Just chiming in here for statistics' sake...

 

Ever since updating to Nougat, my Z5C battery life dropped from two full days to about 8-10 hours.

I typically don't call much, use wifi for surfing and control a bit, have _very_ few extra apps, don't call much, do hang in LTE. More to the point, none of this changed - the update happened, battery life dropped drastically.

 

32.4.A.1.54 since yesterday doesn't seem to change much. Phone running 4 hours after charging, no screen time (just online), 65% battery left. 

 

Sony, please acknowledge the problem.

Have any of you guys tried to disable the movie maker app? I havent experienced any draining issues on my Sony Z5 E6653 but i do have this app disabled and its been mentioned this can solve battery issues worth a try?

Today I tried that option disabled the movie maker app @6am morning with battery percentage 56%, when checked in evening @4:30 with most of the time phone is idle the battery was 46%. It seems less than previous  firmware version standby time.

Have you got your display set to optimise as well? this also seems to reduce battery use. Phone was on 100% 7am now 14:50PM used 1 hr 54 display time in total battery now on 75% havent charged it since either. This includes 30 mins on my break playing "Hades Star" for me this is pretty good. I guess it also depends on apps in the BG i hardly have any apps to be fair apart from the usual FB,Snap,Whatapp odd game or two.

My display always set to optimize level and adaptive brightness is on. I am not playing any games in my Z5. No FB only whatsapp and BBC app. But today I didnot even take my mobile with me. Have to monitor more about battery life. Will update about any improvement.

I forgot to ask what model do you have? i am using the E6653 standard Z5, maybe other models slightly different, like the dual or premium would use a bit more power i would imagine?

 

Good luck.
