Great that would be my normal usage happy cause it's great improvement I only get 4 hours now. Thanks!
Araceli, 19 Jul 2017How much screen time do you get now with Nougat? In my normal usage pattern: (half-day with SIM standby, few minutes mobile data; half-day in airplane mode, Wi-Fi on, web surfing, playing music with Xloud): about 3.5 hours SoT
Heavy usage (gaming at STAMINA mode, max volume): 2.5-4 hours SoT depending on the game
On airplane mode, no STAMINA mode, wi-fi on, max volume, Super-vivid mode: 3.5-4 hours SoT
Maximum SoT achieved normal usage (STAMINA mode, Wi-Fi on, web browsing only): 5.5 hours SoT
Minimum SoT achieved (no STAMINA mode, Wi-Fi on, Super vivid mode, high brightness, doing heavy tasks that heats up the phone (like camera)): 2.5 hours SoT
* Adaptive brightness somehow improves SoT.
* Battery endurance is much better on nougat. Before, my phone is at 20% before I reach home. Now, my phone is at 30-60% before I reach home.
* On airplane mode, drains 2-5% on marshmallow in 8 hours. Only drains 0-2% on Nougat.
* Battery percentage is better callibrated on nougat
* Use Greenify (for rooted and non rooted XA) for better battery life
* Use airplane mode if possible.
superman, 19 Jul 2017xperia xa or a3 2017
and why?Sony is the best. Forget Apple or Samsung or etc.(except asus)
Sony will never let us down, gotta remember these people work hard to avoid planned obsolescence.
I have my Xperia XA f3113 white+signature of famous DJ Tchami signed on the back of my phone.
Never ran into any issues, manage to get full day use of battery, moderate use equals to excellent usage.
One issue I only ran into is the Overlay screen detected(had anti virus and uninstall it to remove that issue)
If not, its the BEST phone I ever had after my Zenfone 3(someone stole it from me.)
Got my phone in January and since then , I love it, its my baby, I love you Xperia XA.
Take care of all your devices!!!!!
(Don't forget, once a month, Discharge your device from 100%-0% and do not reopen it; plug it on usb charger and leave it on charge until it hits 90%/100% THEN you can open your phone.)
This will help the battery life.
Still waiting for nougat here in Argentina it's taking forever! Grrr
superman, 19 Jul 2017xperia xa or a3 2017 and why?Should we know about Samsung a3?
I have problem with Google app(I cannot remember if it started with Nougat or earlier). The microphone turns on by itself (I don't click anything) especially when I use YouTube and Music. I disabled it and it it enable itself again lol should I disable the whole app? I'm afraid my phone will misbehave
Pao, 18 Jul 2017Im planning to buy a new phone. What would be the best phone that i can choose between Sony XA... moreXA would be the best designed device and also best camera features in my opinion...
Im planning to buy a new phone. What would be the best phone that i can choose between Sony XA and Huawei GR3 Thanks!
mohsin15, 18 Jul 2017turn off adaptive brightness in the settings I want to use that feature not to disable it... So if sound is bad, i should disable speaker? xD
After updated to 7.0 touch improve, battery also performing well, new UI, more brightness and some new functions... good job Sony, mine F3116
satria, 17 Jul 2017should i buy this or xperia z5?http://m.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=7950&idPhone2=7534
Z5 have 1080p screen, 3gb of ram and everything better then XA... But XA design is way better.
My screen is changing brightness from min to max, when im outside on sunny day. Indoor it works fine, but on sun it does not. 131 build number. Anyone know why?
XA better than Z5 at: camera (mostly at 8 mp samples), maximum speaker loudness, speed of charge, weight, screen colors are a bit better, overall design - (my tests).
hari, 16 Jul 2017Does the xperia xa give better battery' performance no
