dev77799, 20 Apr 2013yeah if same usage like urs I assume my phone would last but I guess looks like I'm unconsciou... moreI would just say that none of my previous phones, with comparable use, have ever lasted as long as the XZ with similar usage and that includes the S3, iP4s & 5, Nexus 4 and the HTC One X+. The battery is at least comparable to most out there except the Motorola which have huge capacity batteries. Whilst previous Sony phones have been lacking in battery performance on release, like the Xperia S and T, they fixed those with software updates. Optimising the battery as advised by others on here should help.
I just got the device 2 weeks ago and I have no problems at all. Sony never die !!!

I just don't know! I pray 4.2.2 further add s strength to battery!
Wolfson, 20 Apr 2013Navigon is available in appstore so just download it.Thanks my friend. Ill definitely get this fone rather than htc one and galaxy s4.
but the problem is i cnt even clik on that option? (personalisation under font size)
is it just the wording dat been written down or is dhr any problem regarding this option in my phone?
rpl plz !
i bought this phone on 17-4-2013 phone is excellent but battery back up is so poor after full charge its work only three to four hours and second at the time of talking set heat up and u can not liesten properly.SONY company is world known company and it should be launched after all these test.
hi guys, i've been doing lots of research and been checking the comments from users in this gsmarena. . can someone that has got the xperia z confirm the camera quality for this phone ?? because lots of people have different opinion on this ... and is the volume loud ? i mean can you hear it outside ...
thanks , much appreciated ...
love the design on this baby ..
Is this fone got pre-installed aps navigation Like NAVIGON same as my galaxy s2. If its so ill definitely buy this beast .
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013I need a back up phone! xperia z battery has been sadly less than what I expected !!! honestly... moreIt's time for SONY and the rest of OEMs to talk to Prof. W. P. King about his battery innovation. A thin and powerful smartphone is usesless if its battery can't povide such power at least a day. And this is Sony's weakest point, but they never address since heir 2012 releases, but tricked us with Stamina Mode.
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013man bro I respect!! so much detail worth trying man! I really hope it works! Seldom have less than 50% at the end of the working day which is more or less 7.30 a.m through 7 p.m. admittedly only a medium usage person here. Music (60mins) wifi and pretty much everything on in Stamina mode, plus calls and texts and occasional Angry Birds (30 mins)!
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013man bro I respect!! so much detail worth trying man! I really hope it works! :) it will.
goodthings, 19 Apr 2013OK, first, something's wrong. I've plugged my phone off at 60% at 10 am this morning. It's 22,... moreman bro I respect!! so much detail worth trying man! I really hope it works!
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013my phone was plugged off at 6pm with 75% battery now it's 12am with 18%!!!!!! what the hell is... moreOne more thing Dev,
I found stamina extremely efficient, but I'm also careful with the exceptions I allow there. Basically, I've restricted them to gmail, whatsapp, business calendar and mighty text. NOTHING ELSE. That's basic communication to make sure you get every push email and message instantly. Apart from that, I allow stamina to kill everything.
And don't forget about the screen. IT is the one that drains the battery.
JingXiang Lim, 19 Apr 2013I never face this problem~ Mine is even on LTE... My battery can last a whole day with whats... morehonestly I tried everything! charging in offline mode is something I rarely have tried, I'll try that too but no joke I don't charge very often I wait till it drops below 20% then charge and in some occasions let it die completely and then charge! I'm depressed guys honestly! should I go service center? I know I won't get a replacement that's for sure :-(
dev77799, 19 Apr 2013my phone was plugged off at 6pm with 75% battery now it's 12am with 18%!!!!!! what the hell is... moreOK, first, something's wrong. I've plugged my phone off at 60% at 10 am this morning. It's 22,13 here now and my phone shows 36 %. Meanwhile: I've watched a full episode (50 min), I've talked about one hour, did some browsing, sms, everything with WIFI on, GPS on and what not. My stamina shows 11 hours (I repeat, at 36%)!. This means that stamina calculates the remaining time contextually.
here's what I think you should do:
- turn off stamina
- restart your phone (that should put stamina to sleep for good)
- charge your phone up to 100% (pay attention, Sony tells you that it will stay some while at 99%, in order to increase the number of cycles of recharge. All this info is in the User manual, I don't understand why people don't read those things, they're extremely useful!)
- use it until the battery dies
- this should reformat your battery.
- if it's not a major inconvenience, do this three times.
- AFTER this, restart stamina.
- now restart this phone again.
- finally, check stamina estimations after a couple of weeks (that is, give it time to learn your style of using the phone)
If I'm right, you should see a major improvement.
