AnonD-481725, 02 Nov 2016There is not a single issue with the battery, Xperia xa battery performance is above average, ... moreMIne does have battery issues, during the night it drops sometimes up to 10%, less battery, even in airplane mode drains up to 5% battery, I have the latest firmware and done everything to save battery
Facing heating issues after the latest update from Sony on 1 November, battery is draining fast and device is hot all the time!!!!
Playing online game for 1 hour drained 20%. Downloaded update 795MB in 3 min. After installing update which took 30 min 36°C (feels warm), normally 29°C (feels cold). I did not do anything on my mobile for 2 hours, battery fell 4% during first hour, probably caused by overheating a little (36°C). So far I am happy with the endurance of battery. It is solid if you turn your brightness to minimum, turn off Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS which were originally all enabled and brightness to average. In other words, using your mobile actively will probably drain from 100% to 0% just in 3-5 hours and just on standby 24-100 hours, but it is only my predictions upon the first day of using it.
Apart of battery, I found display rotating two ways while playing WoT Blitz which was smooth on Minimum graphics. Bezel-less display sometimes plays against me as I have problem touching buttons at the edge of it, meaning they interacting with virtual buttons (back, home, apps open), otherwise display looks awesome. I was afraid to buy XA but most of people reviewing it probably never held the phone in their hands and know little to make good points and bad ones.
I installed new update, it drained 5% of battery in just few minutes and battery got warmer, but during charging no heating issues. Downloaded game slightly more than 1400 MB in just 10 min and extracting it into 1,45GB took 1 hour, but no overheating, 20% dropped.
Charging: 10 min 10%, 25 min 32%, 30 min 40%, 40 min 53%, 53 min 71%, 60 min 77%, 65 min 82%, 70 min 85%, 75 min 88%, 80 min 90%, 85 min 94%, 93 min 98%, 97 min 100%.
Before I post how long is the battery charging: 280EUR in box: mobile/usb cable/charger/earphones. 8,78GB used of 16,00 (54%), Free:7,18GB/Used:2,89GB, 298 apps: Google Play services 100MB, Spotify 56MB (sd), Dropbox 39 MB (sd). AVG protection: in Performance/Battery Usage/VIEW SETTINGS found Wi-Fi, GPS, Auto-sync data, Automatic brightness and Auto rotation Enabled. I used wi-fi for Spotify for 1 min and had biggest Data usage of apps 9,93MB. Chrome is default browser. 15GB FREE at Drive from Google, Dropbox, FM radio. No games preinstalled.
Since 13% I stopped all settings, put brightness to minimum, no wi-fi, changed 4G preferred to 3G preferred with longer standby and after 2 hours 11% (it says 3 hours standby). When it was 30%, showed 8 hours. Now it is really good endurance only 1% per hour means I can survive 100 hours, if mobile standby taken seriously 24 hours, no 2-days endurance, but if not used at all seems 100 hours could be possible and without stamina mode. But if brightness set to average, it drains twice as fast meaning 2% per hour, and maximum probably drains 4% per hour. In fact, my mobile went in first hour 5-6% down on average but I was using it so display on standby.

I just bought XA. After 30 min my battery went from 51% to 46% and after downloading new update went to 41%. Another 2 hours and is 16% - just setting my phone.
