Exclamation Xperia Z Battery Issues Discussion Thread

There is only one thing that I find really important in any mobile phone: battery life.

Please post the battery benchmarks and real world experience with battery life in this topic. I am especially interested how it compares with the Samsung Galaxy SIII, HTC One X(+) and Apple iPhone 5 in normal day use.

Agree. I'd be very interested in hearing this. Everyone raved about the S3's battery life and I found it really average.

A good italian reviewer said that the battery life lasts only 10-11 hours under heavy usage WITH Stamina mode on, LTE and HSPA+ turned off and push notifications on via 3G from mail, Whatsapp and a couple more apps (you can decide which app has the permission to keep on running even in Stamina Mode). He also says that the LTE module kinda warm the device under stress, the viewing angles kinda suck and that there are mini lags in the UI (problem solved using Nova Launcher).

you can disagree with me all you like.
but to me, there are far too many problems with this phone, and like i say, i think it is outdated tech.
there will be a lot of disappointed people out there.
and battery life is by far and away terrible on this phone.
i've used it.
i can guarantee you will be charging this phone up every 4 hours, unless you know, you don't want to have the screen on at all.

Yes because you have clearly used the phone. Think I'll believe my own hands on with the device with the half hour I had and the battery life wasn't that bad. If you want bad battery life then go use the Nexus 4 or One X - The One will be the same. Go back over to the Samsung forums with the rest of the mindless sheep. Samsung fans are no different from Apple ones.

DONATE TO ME
Battery life is Decent,
Screen according to the Docomo units and xiFIL is brilliant and nothing to be ashamed of, Viewing angles as proved in the Xperia Z screen discussion thread is not much oof a problem, although samxool likes to look at his phone sideways
Battery is replaceable, just give it to Sony within the 2 years and they will change it for you if seomthing goes wrong, failing that i am sure guides will pop up how to remove the back cover
terrible phone quality, DO NOt judge a phone when you have never used it,

HTC M7 HAD to be clocked higher with the SAME processor as Sense is laggy and slows the phone down,
Samsung octa core propoganda clearly got to you, its 4 + 4 processor, two quads, they do not work together, only one quadcore will be active at any time,

|Previous Devices: HTC Touch HD, HD2, Xperia X10, Desire HD, Sensation, Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC ONE X, Xperia Z|

Out of all of the posts here, none had anything to do with the thread. It was all off topic. PLEASE guys, if someone says something that gets under your skin, don't respond to it, report it. Or just move on to another thread

Cleaned thread. Lets stay on topic
