I too notice that.
I've been through all the software version available for it.
I like Nougat because of it's loud volume via the 3.5 jack aside of that I think marshmallow is cooler when it comes to battery performance

The worst part was by Google, not Sony. The night blue light dimmer was removed, forcing me to use a not decent third party app.
I've been using this phone for a while now. Its cool and does performance greatly.
I started up with Marshmallow, which the battery was working okay, got some security updates like twice after upgrading to 7.0.0.
Out of the updates, the second security update ruined the battery performance shortly, later on it then balanced itself. Now i just got another update which i think is Oreo, and I'm tempted to hit the update button.
But am scared at the same time 'cos i don't want my battery performance down this time.
Pls for those of you running Oreo, pls what's the battery and general performance of the phone on oreo compare to nougat.
Battery is my main concern here, pls help me out.
Kujtim, 08 Jan 2020Tell me about battery life please. I had XZ but it was terrible. Only 2-3 hours. It's great bro can wasting until end of the day with single charge, but when play pubg of course 2-3 hours but thats enough it is not good spending lot of our time for playing games :D
Hey what series are you using, global or docomo ? mine have too but docomo version is it possible to root this phone without unlock it ?
this is great phone i ever had
I have mine now for about two years and with a rather clean Android 8.0.0 (unlocked and rooted). Sure, it depends how you use it and on the signal strength is in your region, but I could use it for about 3 to 4 days without recharging. I usually recharge it every two nights. When I use it for navigation it lasts for only about 3 hours or so, though (GPS and mobile data switched on). ;D

Sony, this is an egregious shortcoming.
I really wish they made more smaller phones like this one. Nowadays we have to carry bricks everywhere we go. I think this is the ideal form factor.
For everyone whos complaining about battery quickly drain. just down grade your OS. i bought this phone with Oreo as OS. and i downgrade the OS to Marshmallow, the battery performance is even better than before.

I don't know maybe it's my battery getting faulty or because im running on android oreo. I've never seen any of the core is shutting down so it would affect the battery i think.

In my experience, i could record at least 15 at 1080p 60fps and 5 minutes at 720p 120fps.
I'm planning to buy this phone as my daily driver and would give to my mother when I got a job soon. Only 1 question, does the phone heats and shut off the camera when recording videos in very long time? And also, last. How long could I record on 1080p 60fps with this phone? Hope someone would reply! Cheers
