dev77799, 19 Apr 2013I need a back up phone! xperia z battery has been sadly less than what I expected !!! honestly... moreIt's time for SONY and the rest of OEMs to talk to Prof. W. P. King about his battery innovation. A thin and powerful smartphone is usesless if its battery can't povide such power at least a day. And this is Sony's weakest point, but they never address since heir 2012 releases, but tricked us with Stamina Mode.
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013man bro I respect!! so much detail worth trying man! I really hope it works! Seldom have less than 50% at the end of the working day which is more or less 7.30 a.m through 7 p.m. admittedly only a medium usage person here. Music (60mins) wifi and pretty much everything on in Stamina mode, plus calls and texts and occasional Angry Birds (30 mins)!

goodthings, 19 Apr 2013OK, first, something's wrong. I've plugged my phone off at 60% at 10 am this morning. It's 22,... moreman bro I respect!! so much detail worth trying man! I really hope it works!
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013my phone was plugged off at 6pm with 75% battery now it's 12am with 18%!!!!!! what the hell is... moreOne more thing Dev,
I found stamina extremely efficient, but I'm also careful with the exceptions I allow there. Basically, I've restricted them to gmail, whatsapp, business calendar and mighty text. NOTHING ELSE. That's basic communication to make sure you get every push email and message instantly. Apart from that, I allow stamina to kill everything.
And don't forget about the screen. IT is the one that drains the battery.
JingXiang Lim, 19 Apr 2013I never face this problem~ Mine is even on LTE... My battery can last a whole day with whats... morehonestly I tried everything! charging in offline mode is something I rarely have tried, I'll try that too but no joke I don't charge very often I wait till it drops below 20% then charge and in some occasions let it die completely and then charge! I'm depressed guys honestly! should I go service center? I know I won't get a replacement that's for sure :-(
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013my phone was plugged off at 6pm with 75% battery now it's 12am with 18%!!!!!! what the hell is... moreOK, first, something's wrong. I've plugged my phone off at 60% at 10 am this morning. It's 22,13 here now and my phone shows 36 %. Meanwhile: I've watched a full episode (50 min), I've talked about one hour, did some browsing, sms, everything with WIFI on, GPS on and what not. My stamina shows 11 hours (I repeat, at 36%)!. This means that stamina calculates the remaining time contextually.
here's what I think you should do:
- turn off stamina
- restart your phone (that should put stamina to sleep for good)
- charge your phone up to 100% (pay attention, Sony tells you that it will stay some while at 99%, in order to increase the number of cycles of recharge. All this info is in the User manual, I don't understand why people don't read those things, they're extremely useful!)
- use it until the battery dies
- this should reformat your battery.
- if it's not a major inconvenience, do this three times.
- AFTER this, restart stamina.
- now restart this phone again.
- finally, check stamina estimations after a couple of weeks (that is, give it time to learn your style of using the phone)
If I'm right, you should see a major improvement.

Mine is even on LTE...
My battery can last a whole day with whatsapp, facebook, line, wechat, email on in stamina mode and chat with friends~
And even 2 hours of web surfing and gaming with downloads in the background...
Now I still got 20% left after 12 hours...
Please re-optimize ur battery~
You never charge for at least 8 hours when you get it 1st hand right?
I think 5 inch is really perfect size for smartphone screen. Best wishes for sony .

advice, 19 Apr 2013the s3 was released May 2012 while the xz released February 2013 ,but still the s3 has better ... moreS3 has better screen? Better get your amoled damaged eye, my old xperia s crushes my brother's s3 display. Viewing angles are just bs, I never view my phone from sides. My brother's s3 lasts only 3-4 hours of game play and my sxs can match that. Wanna know how? Because low brightness on pentile amoled sucks!! You need full brightness to enjoy the oversaturated colors. While in my sxs, you don't need full brightness to enjoy what you're playing. Even my old xperia pro beats the crap out of s3 display. Troll somewhere else.
