Putting my hat in the ring.
MM's "Doze" is good, but not why i got a sony phone. Stamina mode is far better. At least it was until sony removed it.
Doze, as far as i understand only kicks in if the phone isnt used for more than half an hour. If the phone is moving/being used in any way, in my pocket/car etc its absolutly useless.
"You won't have to do anything to use the new Doze feature. There are no switches or settings you need to toggle, and once you've updated to Marshmallow it just works. That is, when it's supposed to work.
And that's the thing. You won't see any benefit from Doze while your phone is in your pocket and you're working or at school. Things need to be idle, and that means really idle.
For Doze to kick in, your phone needs to be sitting still with the screen off, and not connected to a charger. That means no moving around and nudging the gyro or other motion sensors, no touching the screen or the buttons and no waving your hand around in front of it if you're using a phone like the new phones from Motorola that have motion detection on the front bezel. Set it down, and leave it alone."
I get about the same amount of battery without stamina on lolipop, as i do on MM with doze.

There is no comparison between the two. From what I have read about "Doze" it only comes into affect when the device has been stationary for at least twenty minutes. I have my Z5 in my pocket all day from approximately 6am (i.e not stationary all day). With "Stamina mode" there would be 50% plus charge left at 6pm. With Doze I have gone close to a dead battery by 6pm. I have no way of charging my phone through the day. This is one of the reasons I bought a Z5. I am guessing there shouldn't be any inappropriate language used in this discussion group which doesn't bother me to much because I've used plenty about "Stamina mode" being dropped. Might have to pass my Z5 on and go shopping for a Samsung, or is that a naughty word as well

I just saw there was an update for the Sony Marshmallow for my Xperia Z3+ and I didn't know they will ERASE the Stamina mode completely out of the phone.... So I have just update it... (I WOULD not If I knew that will happen)
Now My phone has much less Options... And I really I don't like it.
1. I can't select the Strength of Vibrations for my keyboard as I used to have it on very low...
2. I hate the Only option for Battery saver.. It is either ON (and my screen is going to Low Brightness Which I cannot adjust afterwards) and the Keyboard has no feedback..
3. I really hate it.
But seriously, I am really looking forward to get back some of these options... There's so many people that I know and they are using phones (I have asked them after I have updated my phone) they don't like it either...
Shame... Was really good. No need for Unneccesary upgrades...
