xperia z1battery life worse after new android update

Installed system update for android 4.4.2, and I am losing 75% of my charge after a full nights charging.
Normally ( before update) I would have 75% depleted when I put it on to charge
I am not constantly on my phone, not leaving apps open, my wireless, blutooth is off.
I have even installed battery defender, and it tells me it's being mostly used by "Google services"
I'm not even signed in to Google

Any suggestions please?

Try to remove any battery savers,task killers.Also go to settings-accounts-google-ads-tick opt out etc etc (this was suggested by one of our geniuses).

Re: xperia z1battery life worse after new android update

have tried the solution, yet to find out if battery will last longer
To be honest, people always moan about battery savers and memory cleaners, and  although its good to be wary, I have always used the batterysaver from LLC.
I have never had any issues, and it is a really reliable app. It does work, and definatley makes my battery life at least 50% better

Re: xperia z1battery life worse after new android update

I am having the same problem. Did upgrade at weekend and now my phone is losing power very quickly. I have tried putting it in stamina mode and disabling what I can. The phone is unusable like this!

Same issue with Xperia Z. Battery drain terrible. Stamina doesn't help. Looses most of charge overnight whilst on standby. X3 charges yesterday. Reset to manufacture settings / reinstalled everything n that didn't help. Google ads off. Can't go back to 4.3 either om lead to believe once installed kitkat. Not sure if update planned soon.

Re: xperia z1battery life worse after new android update

Same thing here!!!

After latest upgrade...

Disaster!

 

All powersavers (standard Sony) are: ON.

Battery history claims its Google-services consuming 95%.

 

I don't "video" or anything (that would drain battery.

FIX THIS ISSUE NOW PLEASE!

Same for me.

All power savers on, google adds disabled.

Problem seems to be caused by the phone staying active when the screen is off. According to the battery usage screen google play services is the culprit.

The only way to get out of this state is to switch the phone off and on, the trouble you have usually lost half the battery by the time you notice,

The problem seems to occur when there is a poor internet connnection, most of the time in my case.

If I am on WiFi or in an area with strong 3G signal then the phone seems OK.

 

This is really annoying and it is not clear you can complain to.

 

Vodafone don't seem interested, despite taking my money every month.

 

Google are designing designing an autonomous car and they can't even design an OS for phone that will work 24hrs on battery.

 

This make me mad!

Re: xperia z1battery life worse after new android update

Myself and my partner are both having the same problem since the latest update. Horrendous battery life, using stamina, all open apps closed, bluetooth off etc.

Sony, this is only since the latest update and needs a proper solution. The battery life is not good enough for this "mobile phone" to be classed as fit for purpose.
