Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

Hi @Khizar

 

Welcome to the community. 

 

Sorry to hear about the issues you are expriencing.

 

If you go to Settings > Power Management > Battery Usage. That will give some breakdowns of what is using up the battery. 

 

Is any paticular function using a disproportionate amount of battery life?

I find same issue as well its not one application its can be anything like android os,screen etc. If you dont use your phone much battery life is ok but if you start using it battery drains very quick i think its the snap dragon 810 is a power hog

I have had my Z5 premium and I am not impressed with the battery life that was advertised by Sony, and I am a Sony employee!

 

It looks to be draining in half a day, even without using the phone.

Physically stunning phone though, the chrome back is beautiful. Bit big and thick but can deal with this. Just battery life is so disappointing, dont know if I should return this now?

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

I read a lot of ranting about bad battery life on the Z5 premium but I'm still missing some real figures. What about screen-on-time? What about usage figures? What about LTE or bad reception?

 

Given the big battery the Z5 premium should last 2 days without a problem since the only component which really drains more battery than on the Z5 compact is the display...

The usual 5hours screen-on-time over the course of 2 days should really be possible otherwise it's a letdown.

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

Its sad to hear that this also seem to be same problem as for z5 compact. Need to charge it two times daily and Im still angry for something I feel did not represent the reviews. Listening to music (soundcloud) and take some snapchat on my way to work for 30 min costed me 30% of the batteri. Hopefully sony will fix this,.
