A poor battery life of z5 compact,and other problems

This is a big problem ,because this is one of the key reasons for me  to buy it.I'm very disappoint.When I close the screen and shut all the apps down(without  stamina and  lifelog still on).During a night,it waste me 13% of battery life(91%-78%).Then I check the battery manage,I find someting is wrong.Z5 compact often self-awake,but I have no idea.I used Iphone6 which just spend 1%-2% battery life(100%-99%/98%;without do something specially;with ios8) a  night.    Other problems is that:I can't mange jurisdiction of apps,I only can accept or reject,but other phones can easy to manage them,like ios,also in other android phones like samsung (also with up 5.0,not 6.0).I have it for ten days and Z5 compact restart  twice!So many bugs and problems!!Fix them please!Fingersenor is not good.And photo is very very red.Besides,photo is bumpy.

Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

Poor battery life.I come from a Z3 Compact and are very disappointed with the battery life. 2 days ? but if barely arrival until 15 pm using it as before and with the same apps. I do not understand how a phone so publicized and expensive might have a bad time. I know very well the Z3 Compacct and arrived safely in the evening but this new Z5 is really a bad purchase !!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope that the problem is the firmware

It may just need time to settle down and get use to how you use your device

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

Can I thank you, but I'm already two days I use it. The problem may be wrong in deep sleep or the new snapdragon consumption too ..... but really the problem there! The ad said 2 days !!!!! Not serious.

Remember same apps and setting respect Z3C...but 50% less battery

I have the same problem. Bought Z5 compact three days ago and the battery life is 10 hours with Stamina turned on and no Bluetooth and other stuff. Something is very wrong.

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

Yes Unfortunately, and I think that the problem is new snapdragon, so impossible to change ... and to think that the Sony advertises for 2 days. really ridiculous

I think to sell and comeback to Z3c

And 'useless to have a nice telefon powerful but that lasts half a day

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

17% in 9 hours doing nothing? Or did you use the phone as normal?

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

Normal usage. Weird thing is the Sony battery estimate thing said a day remaining at 17% but the stock android graph showed it would run out in a few more hours
