I've found the way to go one by one app and to turn background data usage off, is there a way and how to turn data usage restriction on, as you stated? I suppose that way it turn restriction to all or most of the apps.
Can anyone help me with the front camera performance, getting mixed reviews, if someone owns it, can share the experience in low light and in night and overall experience.

But I dont use it above 15 % battery as it restricts my creator mode screen enhancement and sticks it to standard.

Apps needing location, like maps, will use it only when necessary and when active. Another battery waster is autobrightness, turn it off, keep brightness at preffered level, my is half. Another is background data use, so toggle the data usage restriction on. Yet another is auto updater in Playstore app options itself, turn it off, as you dont need all apps updating all the time in background.
Also I have Greenify installed, active for all, but not active for some apps, specially social ones that you want to keep you sending notifications. Also I go through the hassle to turn off notifications on all apps except some social ones, as I noticed that option in apps, like the update option in Playstore menu, actually nullifies the background data restrictions.
I get up to to 13 hr SoT this way.
Where can i buy Xperia 5 mark II for the cheapest price? Europe.
Tann Hauser, 17 Apr 2021location, autobrightness, app background data.Location is most of the time off in my case, but I tried with all unnecessary sounds and vibrations when typing and similar. Generally I'm on with battery endurance just trying to see if I can push some more limits.
Regarding the camera, is there anywhere HDR option because I can't find it neither in stock app, nor in Photo Pro? I mostly use Photo Pro on Auto, but I'm not sure if it triggers HDR automatically if needed or there is an separate option for it.

Regarding cast feature, you have it also in Google photos, in the upper right corner, the same like in Sony Album.
Paddie, 15 Apr 2021Sony Album has been discontinued, you need to use Google Photos or a 3rd party album app.Shame :(
I guess I will have to get used to the Google Photos. I'm missing one big feature though, there is no TV cast button like in Sony Album app.
My TV is an older model, 2014 LG smart TV with WebOS, it was working fine with my previous Sony phone (Xperia X). Sure hope it's not missing because of that.
