Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

Stamina mode is making a comeback, as to when i cant be sure. http://www.xperiablog.net/2016/04/14/stamina-battery-mode-is-returning-on-marshmallow-confirmed/

 

 

Looks like we just need to hold out, and wait for an update. As far as i know it is in beta on select Z3 devices.

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

There's a " at the end of the URL - remove that & the link works. 

 

Glad that you've posted that, I have just upgraded to a new Xperia Z5 (from the Z1), and let it do all the updates it wanted to do; then discovered that I hadn't got stamina mode, something I'd very much liked in the Z1. 

So, glad to see it's coming back. 

 

For the time being, from what I have read, is it best to activate "saving" but not "doze", if you want it to not use battery etc, while it's in your bag, but not actually being used?? That's the impression I got from the first page of this thread. But, I didn't read all the intervening pages ....

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

I have been a Sony mobile phone user since the age of Sony CMD-J5 (year 2000). However, I have started thinking may be its time to switch; primarily because Sony is not clear about their marketing and customer support strategy.  First, they have been dropping not-so-old models from newer versions of Android way too early.  Secondarily, they have been removing some of their block-buster features like the one in this thread.  I see a lack of farsightedness.  What I do not understand, why is it taking them so long to put this feature back to the entire population, regardless of region customers are in?  Why only BETA Program Users?

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

Why everyone is so obsessed with stamina mode? Whats the point buying high end performance phone and strict it's performance by software?

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

Stamina mode didnt really restrict performance. You could, there was a setting for that. And if you did you could potentialy go a week without charging. (Tested myself)

 

But the main thing with stamina mode was it turned apps and other functions off when the screen was off. Only apps you wanted active during stamina would run. (Apart from key android processes) The moment you unlock your phone, that performance was ready and waiting. So when your not using it, battery would last much longer. Even if you yourself was moving about. Where as Doze only becomes active when your phone is stationary for a set amount of time. The moment you pick it up, doze gets canceld.

Re: Android Marshmallow No stamina mode

Then use the greenify. It does the same things above plus you can set agressive doze. Going week with phone is like saving gasoline by not using car and claims the car is very low fuel consumption.

Open a navigation in stamina mode and see how quickly your phone become out of battery. Believe me there really are few parts in your phone to save battery. Screen, tx/rx(any type of radio) and cpu.

For the screen we need better technologies. So lets skip that for now. ( btw 720p screen is the most helping you to achieve a "week" with single charge but nvm)

Restricting cpu performance is one way , and windowing tx/rx is the other what stamina is really do. So setting for aggressive doze is a good candidate and may be all you need. By the way do not always assume that halting a process when device is locked is a good thing all the time. It is not.
