Assuming it's the original battery from '13, you'll have to replace it. And, replace the back cover and glass, to protect the battery and retain waterproofing. They're very easy to do, with the right tools, which can all be purchased on eBay. Good luck.
Mine was bought in 2013 . Recently I'm facing battery draining problem. 1 yr back device back panel was slightly cracked. Is this reason?. Battery is draining very fast n furious 9. Tell me how to solve my problem.? thanks to all z ultra users.

I faced exactly the same problem with facebook App, during June 2017 and uninstalling it was the only way out.
However, now the problem has been fixed by facebook Corp. and you can reinstall the latest facebook app from the google store if you like!

It runs on android 5.1 and the battery lasts more than 30 hours after a full recharge.
The above mentioned duration includes approx 20mins of talk-time on LTE network, 20mins of web browsing with screen brightness on 3/4, 30mins of music playback on headphones, wifi always ON, Bluetooth always OFF, NFC always OFF, GPS always OFF, and auto-updates from google-store OFF as well.
I have noticed that Bluetooth and GPS increase dramatically the battery drain.
The multiple daily updates from the store contribute also towards a drain increase.
Last but not least, it is quite important to root your device, if you haven't done that already, and take complete control of the apps that start automatically during booting, as well as of those running on the background, and eliminate the unwanted background processes too.
If you are not very familiar with such things, i would suggest to reinstall the latest android 5.1 operating system through sony pc-companion and then try to avoid to install too many apps from the store, keeping your Z-Ultra as clean as possible.
No need to mention that high detail 3d-games consume loads of power and drain any phones battery very fast.
Bought in 2013. Battery draining very fast. Wt is the reason n give me suggestions. Wanna to replace battery. Is it correct or not?
I downgraded from LG V20 to V30. Why do they keep making the screen smaller for phablets is what I don't understand. After dealing with eyestrain and headaches with smaller usable screen size (all video and Web content will be smaller with 18:9) I just purchased a mint Z Ultra. I LOVE IT!
AnonD-60230, 27 Oct 2017You can go for XA1 ultra. Its a beast. XA1 is crap though. But never go for iPhone SE. Not worth iti have the sony xperia xa1 ultra its a good phone but keep in mind that it doesn't support remote play.
I've had my Z Ultra for years, and unlike previous Phones I've carried on using it as a mini back up tablet and alarm clock instead of putting it away, and it still works nice and fast considering it's age.
The only niggle I ever really had with it was the poor camera as I encountered more grain than a dessert at times.But for surfing it was perfect with that huge screen and that's why I'm still making use of it when my Tab S2 is on charge.

Excellent phone, been working it heavily for almost two and a half years. Still in excellent condition. Only Facebook app almost destroyed it some time ago. The phone went crazy, fb app didn't start at all along with msn, it was lagging like crazy and o thought it would kind and explode!! Apart from that which was again new right after I got rid of fb app and start entering by chrome everything perfect again. I want a smaller one and I was about to go for Xperia xa1 but after what I'm reading I won't for sure!!!! I'll wait little bit and I go for iPhone se.
