Re: Z5 battery life

Looking at GSM Arena's stats above seem totally inconsistent with most folks experience.  My phone performs only to about 30% in each fo their three categories. The question then becomes.... do the folks in this thread have defective units ?

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

I sent one z5 back thinking it must be a problem with the phone. Received a second z5 only to experience the exact same battery issue. How Sony get away with this is beyond me. I'll be returning this and using my z3 which had pretty decent battery life

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

I have new z3+ and also experiencing poor battery life...I guess the problem is new snapdragon 810... First two days my Xperia lasted about 7-8hours of normal usage ( with stamina on!!). I turned off the location settings - find location with GPS only-without WiFi and 3G, the I have turned off the LTE (using only 3G) and I barely make one day without the charger...better than several hours but miles away from claimed two days

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

Signed up to post about this problem. I'm also getting absolutely rubbish battery life. I've had the handset for five days now and it hasn't improved.

I had an iPhone 6s and I switched to Xperia Z5 Compact because of the promise of 2 day battery life but this handset is actually performing worse than the iPhone.

Here's the performance today.

Had to charge it in the office because it was draining rapidly. Just now surfing and waiting for the bus it drained 10% in 30 minutes.

Absolutely disappointing.

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

Just wondering are all those issues (poor battery life, overheating processor, overheating and freezing screen, laggy phone, and probably more...)  in pair with the sony warranty? Can we return our z5c based on those issues? I know that Sony staff in not kind of a customer friendly and I expect that they will do all they can to NOT take it back from us and return money... Well, this is probably the first time for me that I'm really not happy with the new phone. I had z3c and I was 100% sure that moving from older to newer version of well known phone is the only and right choice for me- was I wrong?
