I recently updated my Xperia z5 to Nougat 7.1 1 version and realized that the battery drains pretty quickly even though the phone is on idle. Therefore looking for some useful tips to fix this issue..your suggestions and advice would be much more appreciated!

Ive had various Xperia phones in the past and All have the same problems: battery life. And i have started to think that it is poor and rushed software optimisations. Whenever I ring Sony customer services they seem to be oblivious of the issue (not recognising the issue) and instead blame Google for the "late" updates and by the time Sony pushes the update it's either too late or is poorly optimised.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 10 Jul 2017Its hardware problemsMore of hardware issues or poor software optimisations? What percentage of hardware &/or software issues?
Gino76, 09 Jul 2017But if you have a newer SD810 and 3GB RAM surely won't that compensate for the "poor" battery ... morehey mate. Yeah you bet 801 is more officient and consistent in performance, hence z3 has a good impression. 810 is powerful and all that but not consistent. even v.2 has issues.
The problem within it is it's read/writting processes, ive done research on the matter.
the problem with it's power drainage lies behind rushed optimisation. They took their 4 core software and made it suitable for 8 core chips. That and that they wanted to have it ready asap as usual, that's why we have v.2 but still, it's still 810.
Anyway there is little we can do to save our battery life and i wont lie to you, it can be better. Still z5 is the best 810 phone in the world so..
xXENDER FREAKXx, 26 Jun 2017Android 7.0 will bring down the battery life because there is more features dude. Plus the fea... moreBut if you have a newer SD810 and 3GB RAM surely won't that compensate for the "poor" battery life of the Z5? Does it also mean Sony's software isn't fully optimised? Or just poor hardware choices?
xXENDER FREAKXx, 26 Jun 2017Emmm u gotta think for a moment dude. What chip is XPERIA Z5 even using? A SNAPDRAGON 810. Com... moreSo I heard. This would mean SD801 doesn't heat up or throttle that much? Downside is it will not get Nougat 7.0. Only ROMs.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2017Other brands that used the Snapdragon 810, throttled down the speed or used the 808 chipset. ... moreBut, this year, Sony is leading back. Previously they finally got a proper flagship XPERIA XZ. Then they made a XPERIA XZs and XPERIA XZ PREMIUM. The 2nd half of the year I am guessing they will have better flagships, 2 of them
xXENDER FREAKXx, 03 Jul 2017Until now I realized how much impact the XPERIA Z3+ gave to the people after the XPERIA Z3. Sa... moreOther brands that used the Snapdragon 810, throttled down the speed or used the 808 chipset. Hence, only Sony had the overheating problems. Don't know why Sony make such a big mistake using the 810 chip with the Z3+ and then again in the Z5.
Although the Z5 had dual heat pipes, it still ran like a toaster !
Zed, 07 Jul 2017Guys I bought Z5 dual E6683 last month...and till now I didn't update my phone to Nougat since... moreUpdate it, i just got to 7.1.1 last week works awesome, better 3.5mm sound , louder on 7.1.1
Jack mqenzee, 07 Jul 2017Sony xperia z5 or samsung j7 (2017)? I need your opinion guysBetter get XZ or X performance
I own a Sony xperia z5 phone' n its battery is internal is 'dead' can I access a spare battery'
Guys I bought Z5 dual E6683 last month...and till now I didn't update my phone to Nougat since I heard a lot of problem bout Nougat...So is it right for me to wait for Android O/ I should just update my phone to Nougat..& my advice to people who want to buy this phone..don't buy this phone if u are a heavy user coz It sometime not just warm..It get too hot sometime actually when u play with camera..but this phone is superb to me..u know It was so smooth & camera is very clear (depends on how u play with the lighting)..:-))
JAK, 29 Jun 2017Hello my all friends I would like to buy Sony Xperia Z5, it is Ok or not because my area is rainyWater resistant, I'd say go for it. Price is right nowadays.
It's the phone I use, and has been the best one I've owned.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2017Man it is Sony. It won't give you any issues even after some years. My Z3 which is made in 201... moreUntil now I realized how much impact the XPERIA Z3+ gave to the people after the XPERIA Z3. Sales have been falling because of one flaw with the XPERIA Z3+; the SNAPDRAGON 810. It is notorious for overheating and hence they are disappointed with Sony. But kinda strange how other brands using that chipset that time still get good sales and only Sony having minor profits
