Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

Same problem for me.
I charged the phone to 100% and immediately turned STAMINA-mode on. After 15 hours of moderate use (some calls, messages, instagram, facebook) the battery was att 5%. Surely with STAMINA-mode on I should expect atleast 24h, but there is no way that my phone could reach 48 hour battery life with moderate use.

The SD810 is a battery hog.

Re: Z5 Compact: Poor battery life !

It could be a software bug which shows battery depliting rapidly the way samsung had issues with their galaxy s3. Battery was their but software showed that battery is not there after sometime.

Second, this could be issue with android 5.1.1 in which if an app connects to internet it doesn't kill that connection even if it's work had been done. Google about it.

Third, sony could answer.

Now 5pm so 10 hours of usage and down to 53%. A lot better than yesterday! But still doesnt look like it will reach 2 days.

 

Settings/battery usage reckons 13 hours of battery left. But the graph shows it running out in 11 hours. Why such different estimates on the same screen?!

8 hours of screen man? Wow It's great. Do you think that this phone can make this autonomy only using 3G, low bright and Whatsapp?

Z5 battery life

Bought phone last Thursday, been having trouble getting through a day with this phone. Previously had Z3c also on 5.1.1 and had no issues running 2 days with 6h SoT.

Upgraded to a Z5 and now facing shifty battery life. Unfortunately I can't return my phone due to 3's policy, so I'm stuck with what I thought would be a great upgrade.

What can I do?
