Tested it for a few days and results were that after the .205 update "Facebook for Xperia" account and sync are keeping phone awake, even when it's locked (turned off display). Disconnected and deleted that account, also I used "GSM only" option, just in case, and problem was solved. Time to fully charge phone is about 1:30 to 2 hours. Battery with regular daily use can survive up to day and a half.
BTW, new update .207 started rolling out just about half an hour ago ;)
I am using this from past 1 year, this mobile has display problem and pixels are less.

Multi-touch is not quite good while charging and you will probably see your screen to freeze and fade out (brownish to full black) for about 3 seconds.
Xperia SP is great phone, amazing hardware specs, but software is terrible. Camera sensor is the same on Xperia L, but that noise and colors on SP's pictures are just sad to look at. Hope to see bug-free and optimized android with 4.4 update.
