For me that's OK, if one app wakes up my device to refresh it, why not to update all apps and notifications...

But it could be annoying if you don't want that...

Well, as soon as i removed all whitelisted apps, stamina mode starting working *almost* at it should. I said almost because it doesn't make sense to have a whitelist option if it effectively destroys the purpose of having a "Stamina" mode.


Anyway, i have faith in sony fixing it.

I think the stamina mode is a bit bugged because I notice my apps stop working properly even thou they in the list. For instance, my outlook (emails stop syncing), wechat (can't send or receive anything), or whatapp (delayed messages sometimes). Even if you wake the phone up, the apps is already stopped working so I have to force stop and to start the app again for it work. I think this also explains why the location based WiFi seems not working at times for me too. I turned off stamina mode and the issue has went away.

The interesting thing is that, I have stamina mode turned on family members Xperia T2 Ultra, Z Compact and Z Ultra, it works works fine for them as they have WeChat as well.

If Stamina mode don't work properly, clearing data of "Eco Mode Controler" in settings>all apps can help.

I think the Op is on to something because I noticed the same issue with Fb messenger the other day, didn't notice it before because I almost never use stamina mode but I'm fairly sure this is either a new 'feature' or bug because stamina mode doesn't behave this way on my Z ultra

Just curious, why would someone not use the Stamina Mode? I mean, what makes you not use it? I didn't see any negative effects it puts on phone, AT ALL. Other than that "extended usage" option, which slows the phone a bit.

Does anyone else has that issue ? i'm on stock .402 rooted (locked BL)


I have that issue too. 1 week after i bought the device stamina mode run well. When the screen off no notification (line, WA etc) then I wake up the screen all notification come. But now it doesn't work. I did re flash and factroy reset but stamina mode still error. I went to Sony Service Centre, they upgrade my os but still error. They said maybe hardware problem. Is that true hardware problem? or software problem? Because i have 2 friends with sony xperia z2 but their stamina mode run well. any idea? sorry if my english bad. Thanks before

Exactly for those reasons listed above, I have fb, WhatsApp, Skype and many more notifications coming through that require the data connection and I want to receive the messages immediately rather than whenever I decide turn my phone screen on. If I used stamina mode I'd then have to whitelist all these apps, there's no point - I may as well just keep stamina mode off. I don't get much gain out of using it anyway because I use my phone a lot during the day where having stamina mode might give me an half a day of use - pointless because the phone still won't last through day 2 so I'd still have to charge it every night. So given that I have to charge it every night with or without stamina mode, its far more convenient to keep stamina mode off so I don't have to worry about missing notifications
