Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

I've also just got an Xperia Z5 Premium, and the battery life actually seems to be getting worse. I've tried rebooting, battery savers, uninstall everything except things I use all the time, and I get posibilly half a day if I'm . When I first got it I'd get a day and a half if I was using it really lightly. I lovw the display, but the stats say it's using something like 30% of the power...

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

I contacted support who advised me to repair the OS with PC companion [essentially reflash the OS]. Initially it may have made a slight difference, but in real terms its either modify how I use my mobile, carry aeeound a battery pack, or get a different phone. If this is is a software problem is it being worked on? Is there going to be an update to fix this co's at the moment I'm basically charging this twice a day. Once a day I have no problem with, and my Z3 gave me exactly that level of performance.

These are some very rough stats

12:40am 95% Quick charged from 30% [last night]
3:43am 92% ][was 93] Added info to keep [in the morning ]
6:28am 89% Checked phone, launched Taptalk in response to notifications. Been in airplane mode all night.
8:01am 73% Deleted some photos, shot a couple of photos of my rabbit.
10:14am @ 48% Added Android wear, calender, Guardian, and lifelog into the active standby apps list.
10:27.@ 46% Reset the fingerprint scanner with new prints.
11:05am @ 41% Been in sleep mode waiting to be woken up.
12:47pm @ 23% Reset my Sony smartwatch 3, beamed two image's and received a screenshot. Received a Facebook massage..
1:11 @ 17% 10 minutes web browsing with Chrome, texting, and smartwatch 3 use.

Recharge!

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

I have the same issue with my Xperia Z5 Compact. It drains battery so fast. just with a %30 capacity usage, it shows that my battery has a 17 hours life!? If I used it with a rate such as %75 capacity, battery life just took 4 5 hours. What is the problem?  It is just my second day with that phone.... Furthermore, the authorized dealer I bought my cell phone, told me that there is nothing we can do. However, there is some particular consumer rights at Turkish Repucblic Laws that I can return if there is a problem with the product in 7 days.. I suppose the dealers in Turkey has a certificate of primary school.

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

I've had similar issues, the battery lasted just one day.

 

Then, I've started my Z5P in secure mode for a single time, for app bug hunting. After that, starting in normal mode, the phone battery lasts up to three days, slight usage (4,5h Display On Time).

 

Maybe, this is of any help.

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

Hi try installing the Snapdragon battery app from the Google play store see if that helps ,it learns for 2 days what the charging habits are and tries to optimise your phone for you.

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

About to perform a factory reset on Mine as the battery was fine on my premium until the last software download from Sony themes
Now ever since I am dropping percent very quickly
Can someone please advise on best way to factory reset
Is it best to take out sd card first??
Seems weird that a Sony download has caused this issue

Re: Xperia z5 Premium battery Drain so fast

Hi,
I just got z5p yesterday and I was shocked about battery drain. My Z2 was far better. It was like doing nothing and battery dropped to 90%.
Having stamina mode on.
Will it be fixed soon by Sony?
