you know very well that it's not a solution. The ability to seemlessly use a £100 smartwach made by the same company [without it shutting down bcause the phone drop's the connection] of the £500 phone it's paird with isn't to simply alow it to not communicate with that phone so that the handset can get more battery life by shutting down the radio interfaces. I said that I wasn't going to bang my head against a wall, but don't go telling people that an unexplained battery drain has anything to do with the whitelist. I have the exat same setup, and it's not done that for some time. clearly it was an aborent event....

To me it looks a bit like the battery usuage stats you see doesn't really add up.
In the latest screenshots you posted the screen has been using 16% of the battery according to the stats. However, it has been on for 3h and 36 minutes. I think the display should account for more of the battery usuage in this case.
There's also something keeping the phone from sleep. This is probably why you see that battery usuage on the OS.
Would you be willing to send me a log from your phone? I will forward that internally to see if we can find what's keeping it from sleep and why it uses that much battery.
To do this:
Settings > About phone > Build number, tap 7 times on the build number
Go back and select Developer options and turn on "USB debugging"
Charge phone full
Restart your phone
Use it as you normally do until battery starts to get low and then:
Settings > Developer options, select "Take bug report". When the report is ready (might take a minute) you'll get a notification that you can tap and share it Google Drive. Please send me a link to it in a private message.

I'm sorry I don't have any anwers, just experiencing the same problem as yourself.
My batter seems to drain more at night, while I'm sleeping and obviously not using the phone, than it does during the day when it's being used. One of the reasons I bought this phone was because of its reputed battery life, unfortunately, like yourself, I'm having to charge my phone more frequently than my old one (a Samsung, which was my other option, it was the size of the phone which was the deciding factor int he end).
If anyone is able to help I'd appreciate it. As mentioned I see very similar patterns to yourself.

You've hit the nail on the head there.
One day at best, with minimal use.
Raise an an issue and it's always either blamed on wifi being on too much or apps keeping it from sleeping.
Then, just when hen I had made peace with the single partial day of use being the norm...
Last night I went to sleep with the battery at 40%, yet it was flat before my alarm could wake me for work 6hrs later.
$400 out of pocket today thanks to my Xperia.
40% to 0 percent in less than 6 hours without a single use or activation of the screen.

Did anyone find a solution to this? I'm seeing equally poor battery use.
I see about 10% drain per hour when it's not being used. I unplugged it today at about 7am and then had to charge it up again by 4pm despite not using it.
I love Android, and I've been on Android for eons, but I have to say that my experience of the terrible battery life on my Z5 since 6.01 has left me looking at an iPhone as my next device. I just want to know the phone will be on when I pick it up.
Is there a forum mod out there who would look at some debug logs for me from my phone perhaps?

I would give it a go but I think that Google Play Music won't reload the offline downloaded music you remove the card and run the phone without it. DRM n stuff.
I can't live without my offline music
