OK so "upgraded" to a Z5 from Z2 at the weekend and i am struggling with the battery life. I charged it at the weekend and it gave me a life of 17hours! I have just charged it to 100% now and it says 9 hours. This is nowhere near the 48 hours in the spec.
I have gone back to the shop where i bought it and they have asked me to keep it a week to see if it gets better. As a comparison i charged my old Z2 and New Z5 yesterday and at standby with now apps running no data bluetooth etc. the Z2 was showing 97% whereas the Z5 was down t 83% this is not normal is it. The shop tested the battery and say its ruinning ok.
Is the battery that bad?

Right i did a live chat with someone from Sony yesterday and using the "repair phone" in PC Companion seems to have solved the issue battery has hardly drained overnight and did even go down after bluetoothing to the car this morning . Charging up to 100% now so fingers crossed.
Have sen other threads regarding battery life being poor after updates so hoping i dont have to keep doing this.

It's normal to see these type of battery usage after upgrade. It's not just LP to MM. I had the same problem after the first few days but now battery usage has returned to normal.

So i looked up what is the 2 day life based upon. Sony's definition is "Typical Smartphone User usage profile. This involved using the device for approximately 5 hours in a 24-hour period, for a range of typical usage scenarios (calling, texting, web, social networking, games, camera, music and video)."
This is what i got yesterday it looks like i left WIFI on all night so will repeat again. Although power used by wifi was low

So this is 3 days worth its up to 20hrs but with hardly any use. I stopped the wifi by turning off background wifi scanning.

Your phone is not normal, first try to repair via PCC, then if the issue is still there, go to service and ask them for a new device.
