I'm waiting for Nougat update to see if it fixes the problems. I send you a screenshot of my battery usage. Regards
May I ask did you notice a yellowish colour at any side of the screen I can't tell when the screen is clear (white themes) this clear yellow line at the middle of the left side
Araceli, 28 Apr 2017I don't know just hope so; that's one of the improvements android talked about and we need it! Do you remember when we bought it it had a sticker it on with a pink drawing of a battery and it said 2 days? It's seems it's not what Sony planned ..something went wrong

So for sure this device it's not for indolent people.
i bought this phone and im proud of the brigthness it is very strong in daylight and the camera is good but it is quite difficult because it has a lot of options
Had a week sold it terrible battery life on it.
Nougat won't improve battery life they stuck a small battery in a Handset that has a power hungry sucking chipset.
try to discharge your phone to 0% and charge it for 3-5 mins. then turn on your phone. you may see from 0% it will become 45% battery charge. My sony xa is like that. But I discharge it just once a month. My sony xa is 6 month old now and I never update it since I bought it. my only problem is the sound is sometimes low and aside from that no problems at all.

rdcanfs, 28 Apr 2017Nougat will improve battery performance? How do you know it?I don't know just hope so; that's one of the improvements android talked about and we need it!
ust charge your device around 5%-10% and try to not use the device while its charging( it can affect the battery life)
Every month since January I got it, once a month I charge the device to 100% then use it during the day and at the end of the day I discharge the device until it hits 0%, the device shuts down and then I just plug it in WITHOUT powering it up until it reaches 100%.
This will help the battery life to extend it.
Take care of the device and make sure to clean your device regularly :)

me, 26 Apr 2017Hey Guys How's the Battery life? is it good? =)The battery life is terrible. If you are a normal user, facebook, youtube and the like, expect to have to recharge it by or before 1pm each day. Anytime the screen is on the battery drops about 1% per minute.
