I am not a heavy... moreIt's really hard to give an exact figure regarding the battery life because everyone uses their phones differently everyday. Right now my phone has 57% left, been running for 10 hours and 24 minutes. I haven't used my phone much today, maybe a total of 30 - 45mins of browsing and gaming and it has stayed on standby a lot. Autosync is on for Gmail (received a couple of emails) and whatsapp (no messages). I love my Xperia P but the battery is terrible. I'm just at home most of the time so battery isn't that a problem cos I can charge it anytime. I lose about 8 - 10% in 6 hours (when I'm asleep, no special setting). I would imagine normal - heavy users would be frustrated with this phone. I used to charge this phone twice a day with heavy use.
Nic phn bt battery so poor performance hw to overcome it someone help me pls....

Of course if you use it intensively (especially at the beginning after purchase) expect to charge it twice a day (same as any other mid-range smartphone).
ICS is better option (longer battery life on stand-by) and only some users have difficulties with WiFi.
I am thinking of buying this phone but I am wondering about battery problems. I am not a heavy user and hardly surf the net or play games for an hour a day. My current usage on my Nokia 603 lasts for 2-3 days. So will I experience much issues ? Is the non replaceable battery a major headache for 1-2 years Thanks for answering my questions. Also on the internet, the phone is available with gingerbread os but in stores in ics, it is costlier in stores so where should I buy it from, I've been hearing ics update messes up with wifi ? Thanks for answering my question. Cheers!
bone, 18 Nov 2012How to improve the battery perfomance of this phone??? Pls help me out The battery is 1305mAh. So by theory , the screen in Xperia P ib most likely to consume the battery. This is true , as i HAD one Xperia P. The battery depletes every minute. It was quite painful to see that. While outdoors, or even in the office also, it is a headache to maintain the battery life. Again, the battery cover is non-removable, making the case worse that you can't even keep a spare battery. But if you are happy with the external batteries available in today's market, then its your choice to buy Xperia P.
www , 17 Nov 2012i was intended to buy Xperia P . But the poor battery backup issue ( user comments ) halted me... moreThe mobile hardly lasts 3 hrs on continuous browsing. It is the best midrange android device while it comes to the features. But again the BATTERY life is so so poor that I sold my Xperia P within 10 days from buying. It was disgusting and shame to the company that has fit the poor BATTERY into it.
anik32, 18 Nov 2012last day i but sony xperia p , but i not happy with it because poor battery , so give me sugge... moreDude ! I had bought a Xperia P and sold it within 10 days due to its sucking battery life. SL is a better option as the battery is a little poserful than P, but again its battery is non-removable as I checked the disassembly procedure. So if you are happy with this option, go for SL or else go for a Galaxy S series which has much better battery life.

Can i face less battery back up in this case ?
last day i but sony xperia p , but i not happy with it because poor battery , so give me suggestion which one better sony xperia P or sony xperia SL may be i'll change it .
www , 18 Nov 2012thanx a lot .sony / sony ericsson phone are better than samsung in midrange section.but batter... moreWell, if browsing is your main requirement, you should go for device with 5:3 aspect ratio (or bigger 16:9 screen). Xperia P is a great multimedia phone with exceptional design (things I was looking for..:) Also AMOLED screens consume less energy, so if I were you, I would go for samsung galaxy s2 or s3 mini (wait for the price drop). If you want to go for cheaper option, HTC One V has good rep in my country, great sound and battery backup (CPU is not crucial for web browsing). Huawei P1 is a cool phone too.. If you're still thinking about Xperia P, battery life really improves with ICS (5h screen time today:), and it charges really really fast.
Hah, maybe the best option is to keep the Nokia and get the Nexus 7 tablet. It's within your budget;) Anyway, I hope I helped you.. Good luck!
