Xperia Z2 Ultimate Battery Saving Guide!
Okay, so I've noticed a lot of people that are only getting around 4-5hours battery life, which is actually pretty good but they crave more, esspecially when people like myself are getting over 7 hours screen on time
So heres a guide that I have made for you guys!
Who needs a bright display, Not you that's who!
So first things first is the screen, its what will take up more battery life then any other component of the phone, so, Turn that baby right down, I use Auto brightness which can be found in the quick settings in the pull down bar Or Settings > Display > Brightness > Auto
Try having a screen time out which is around 10 seconds or less will also help, the less time the screen is on, the more power you will save!
X-Reality Engine is a great tool that Sony
put into most of their flagship devices, it basically adds contracts to photos and videos, It works well and looks good, BUT if you arent using it turn it off, you will notice a difference. To do this Go to settings > Display > X-Reality
and untick it
Double Tap To Wake
I use this great feature all the time ( Although it can be unresponsive sometimes ) I believe the screen will keep active while its off, to obviously wait for your double finger tap, if you dont use this, disable it by going into Settings > Display and unticking it
Notifications, What Notifications?
Syncing is a BIG
part of android and its ecosystem, its what makes a smartphone a smartphone, Disbale syncing by either pulling down the settings menu and disabling it or go to settings > Scroll down > Auto sync off
, You will stop getting notifications but battery life will be far better, trust me
Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC, Data & GPS What are these things?
Wifi, Bluetooth and NFC, GPS all have their uses, and so does 3G and 4G obviously, who could live without those right?
Unfortunately they drain the battery, A lot of it !
Wifi uses the least amount of battery, for internet connectivity especially if you put it on Wifi Optimization, to do this Go to settings > Wifi > Advanced > and tick it
Also. Keep WiFi on during sleep should be ticked off if you haven't got sync on
GPS is on as standard on any new android phone, untick and watch your battery increase! Go to settings > location > and Untick
3G and 4G are great, But take up the second most amount of battery, If you have a 4G plan I suggest you finding out if you have good coverage because the phone is constantly scanning, If you have bad 4G coverage, put 3G on instead, itll save battery and you may even get better speeds! To do this pull down your notifications bar and hit Mobile data which will activate 3G or 4G to activate 4G
Although NFC Can be useful and doesnt drain to much battery, it does a little by leaving it on, Disable it by going to the settings > More > Untick NFC
Sony Even Include Battery Saving Settings? WHAT
Thats right, Sony Include settings to help you save even more juice
Stamina mode is great, dont ask me how but it just works. Go to settings > Power Management > Tick Stamina Mode and watch yourself get more battery life!
Also, I dont think people know this but if you actually click Stamina mode it comes up with an option to restrict performance in favour for battery life, If you dont mind it being a little slow here and there I suggest clicking it, thats how I got OVER 7 HOURS SCREEN ON TIME
I Believe thats it, Thanks for reading this guide, I really hope It helps
