Hey maxym how to enhance battery back up and activate deep sleep mode... This battery backup is too much annoying
AnonD-147621, 07 Jun 2013Is the battery on Xperia P really so bad or it's good enough for everyday needs ?Battery is not so bad, but user habits, and Android handling of power saving is, but it's nothing special.
Battery will usually last from 4-5 hours (intensive non-stop gaming or WiFi/3G web browsing) to 3 days (couple calls per day, 30 minutes of WiFi browsing, proper setting for DeepSleep-in), but for regular users you can expect one day of use.
You can read more about battery on other pages of this 'forum'.
AnonD-152760, 07 Jun 2013tnx for the info about battery, i will try to do exactly how you suggested, hope it will be so... moreJesam. [ ENG: I am.] ;-)
Repair last about the same as update, so let's say it's about 7-8 minutes including first boot.
Only system data, user settings and files outside of \sdcard folder will be deleted, but you can backup entire memory (including \sdcard) just to be safe.
AnonD-153284, 07 Jun 2013non removable battery , does it matters,
and what about JB update, please reply any one updat... moreNo it doesn't matter, if you are regular user. Only some people who are accustomed to have two batteries and replace them when run out of battery. After two years you will probably have another smartphone.
Lot's of peoples already updated to JB, nothing revolutionary happened. :-)

gal, 07 Jun 2013What do u mean that no need to install antivirus or task killer? Is it okay without installing... moregal,
This is how things works:
Anti-viruses do protect you from viruses, but it's fact that there are not so many viruses for Android (compared to PC system), also, there is less chance of getting infected (especially if your phone is not rooted, and majority isn't).
On the other hand, anti-virus spends valuable processor time and battery capacity since it works in background, so it slows down your phone, and makes your battery miserable.
When you count in all the goods, and all the beds, combined with how seldom some Android smartphone gets infected, it's clearly that arguments are in favor of not installing anti-virus.
As for the task-killers and battery management apps, sure you can get some system app for controlling tasks, start-ups, processes and events, but avoid task killers that generally stays in background and enables you to free unused part of RAM or kill suspended processes because they too drain battery for nothing, majority of these apps is for older Android versions, so you won't need them on JellyBean.
Battery management was badly needed on GingerBread (talking about Xperia P), but now with ICS and JB, there is no need for it.
Finally for any major upgrade (different OS versions) it would be best to backup phone, do factory reset, update to new OS version, and restore data.
Of course, it's not mandatory to do this, but this way you make sure that no program or settings from previous OS version will make some trouble.
AnonD-68375, 01 Jun 2013First answer couple questions.
Do you have lot's of user installed programs?
When You di... moreWhat do u mean that no need to install antivirus or task killer? Is it okay without installing it? How about if theres any virus or malicious threat through the apps?
And should I do backup data and do factory reset if i want to update to JB? *sorry if there's anyone ask
the same question bfore.
AnonD-152760, 06 Jun 2013i will try this repair feature later today or tomorrow and then i will report improvements if ... moreDo repair, and it's mandatory to do 2-3 full cycles (first battery charging after update must last 3 hours min., after that don't charge it until battery goes under 10%, then charge all the way up to 100%, and once more).
Other problem with sudden drop in battery level is not necessarily software related, it actually points to possible battery calibration error (happens usually when you don't do full cycle, described before, and system doesn't charge battery correctly). This usually happens on battery that is charged to lower then 100% while system detects it as 100%. So when using smartphone extensively battery suddenly loose capacity, and if you go on stand-by and turn screen on after 5-10 minutes, you will see spike up, as if it was charged for a couple minutes.
BTW This cro in nick means: Hrvatska?
AnonD-109040, 05 Jun 2013You can go for xperia L, looks just a little like Z and feature wise little better than P. L is a better choice, but be careful if camera is important to you
AnonD-68375, 06 Jun 2013Problems after update (like those You described) are not specifically related to Xperia P or S... morei will try this repair feature later today or tomorrow and then i will report improvements if they happen.
also i had one big problem with battery, suddenly battery dropped from 30%+ to 14% with low battery warning, then drop to 2 or 3% and then 0% and shutdown. and all this in about 15seconds. after that sometimes it was dead and sometimes it had 10% when switched on and then it drains normally :S
this is a pretty weird SOFTWARE problem that i believe is SONY related, not android (i'm 99% sure it's not in the battery itself because i believe it didnt happen since JB)
just for a comparison, i previously owned a samsung wave on bada, and of course app store was sh*t and features nowhere near as android, but damn, it was reliable with battery and build quality, calls and camera..
AnonD-68375, 05 Jun 2013I don't know for Apps, but flashing firmware through Flashtool is the same as doing OTA update... morethanks thanks and thanks! now im finally happy with flashing! and you are about to answer another poor guy who'll get trouble with JB! c u soon master!
Kasun, 06 Jun 2013Can anyone pls help me...samsung galaxy advance or sony xperia p/which one is the best.im goin... moredude are you from SL?
well S advance is better because it has an expansion slot! funny..! if you are going to buy that Samsung,it'll surely be because it has an expansion slot! just go for P! it's great bro,
this is my opinion, others may have different ops!
(well just don't forget that sony is little late about updates, and likely P won't get higher update than JB, but don't worry, flashing will always be there for help )
if you need more help try reading the reviews of both phones! it'll surely worth for money you are going to spend!
AnonD-152760, 06 Jun 2013(please rate up this comment so people could see what to expect with this phone)
i started ha... moreProblems after update (like those You described) are not specifically related to Xperia P or Sony, same thing might happen to any other Android smartphone.
The behavior you described is not normal, or usual (I know because I have also Xperia P with JB) so obviously something went wrong with update.
In order to fix it, you need to repair your Xperia P (or even do Factory reset, and then repair again if needed), and your phone will behave normally (with some bugs of course, but it's same with any other smartphone).
