My problem was solved when I used wakelock terminator on Google Play services. I think I'd related with ads and location services. So far so good not issues with Google now.

Yeah it should lower the battery usage, but for me it does the opposite.

If I tick the "opt out of interest based Ads" from settings can I delete the file named like .hgsdgfasfueuedhfyjei ?

I don't really have a battery drain issues, and occasionally the phone gets quite warm after I have used it for a while.
I do have a 64G external SD which is nearly full, and I do suffer from sluggishness sometimes. It was like in the 2.2 days where you get occasional jerkiness while scrolling. Never had these problems before 4.4.

Also, it takes a long time for the call screen to go off after I terminate a call - don't think this has anything to do with this ads stuff, but ...

everyone has different configurations apps setting attachments etc - in my case I had SW2 (with it's apps) apps that I had installed over the years from XZ which I like to use - 64gn Ext SD installed

I worked for weeks to try and cure this issue since KK release, hours of deleting/disabling apps processes - wiping my phone completely - removing the ext sd card and reformatting, then scanning all the files with various tools and putting them back on the SD

sometimes I got a result and the phone would calm down for a day but then returned with a vengeance, it reached a point were the only way I could charge the phone in the dock was to turn it off as the charger didn't have enough to compensate for the drain

the issue always seemed related to the ext SD if I unmounted the card it vastly improved but still wasn't just quite right, the clear indication that a problem existed was the heat and the mediaserver using 40% of battery

I am very protective of my data and my privacy and opt out of everything possible - no clouds - no syncs - don't use FB or twitter - all google/sony social stuff is disabled as much as possible but the one I missed was the Ads setting in accounts/google not sure if it existed in 4.3 - once I ticked that box my phone is 100% normal, I have installed my apps back again and everything is still running smooth and cold, my phone can now go 2+ days without needing recharged which is much better than <6 hours

It is fixed 100% and I can say that with complete confidence



If you still have an issue then here are the steps I would advise

remove all installed hardware - check

Remove all user installed apps - check

if still have a problem do a repair update with PCC

return device to sony to check for hardware fault

PS forgot to mention - no need to delete those long folders .hhfdhfhsysyfghshsusd they will keep coming back

I saw symptoms like this when I inadvertently enabled some double tap/magnification option in accessibility settings, it went away once I disabled it

Battery drains, no matter what you do, processor eats energy and so do other sensors ...

Sorry to hear about battery draining issues.

This is actually something that works on my phone, but i have however noticed a decrease in batterylife and i havent changed anything.

But fully charged 5 in the morning and modest use to 15:00(some msg, music and so on). after that i use it like nonstop with the screen on and at about 21:00 the battery says about 10%. i think that is pretty good.
