7 hours SOT on MM? Do you have data 3G and Wi-Fi always on?

In my case I always use mobile data, very rare on Wi-Fi, and I don't keep data always on and even I keep it to gsm only mode to receive notifications or for chat on WhatsApp etc.

It also saves battery, you always don't need 4g, 3g or high speed connection to receive notifications or for chatting/mail apps which generally takes bytes/kilobytes of data

35-40% brightness. Maybe i.ll be lucky with 2.5h sot

Yeah seriously I haven't been able to get more than 3 hours of sot now for like 6 months.. Maybe a rogue app, or maybe just because I always have WiFi and 4g on

Yes I can say, you should sure check for your battery drainer app, and must disable notifications for app which you don't use.

For 7 hrs (approx) SOT or say in order to save my battery I keeps greenifying 25+ apps including some system apps, and even disabled many useless apps (which I don't use). They usually push notifications and also increase wakeups. + I always keep track on for battery hungry apps (atleast as much as I can on this non-rooted device) and running services.

I am still on Lolipop, I keep always data or WiFi on and I have 6-6.30 SOT without closing any apps. Just don't keep auto sync active.

status update after 3 days on marshmallow:
Installed greenify, so now i have about almost 4 hours SOT. A little bit better than my previous battery life with lollipop (3,5 hours). Do not know if that greenify has such a massive contribution. Waiting for the new update with stamina mode. Hope i'll reach 5h SOT :)). BTW auto brightness, set at 25-30% level. 3Galways on, no wifi.
Still cannot get rid of that search applications menu bar. Anyone knows how to disable it?
Also like that double tap to lock :)

Sorry for not reading through the thread. I've got a question. I've updated to the latest 23.5.A.0.575 and the quality during calls is shocking - not on my side but on the other end. Signal looks okay - so I wonder if it's a microphone problem or something else. Has anyone had similar experience and if so any resolution for it? BTW the phone is on EE UK. Thanks

First disable noise suppression. Then:
blow with a powerful compressed air blower into your microphone holes. Dirt and dust distorts the sound. Worked for me every time. Blow from an angle not directly into the holes.

Ok sure...!!

Though there are very rare system app I feel need to greenify especially in Marshmallow, (and also if you already disabled them)

List include-

ant service
smart connect
Googleplay games, movies, newstands

Drive, Box (if you don't use much)
Photo analyser service (perhaps it's safe to disable/hibernate but I don't prefer to)

Smart band (If you don't use regularly)
Gapps (like google, TTS or its other services)


And when it comes to user app my list is-

Podcast
Game stores
Sketch
Lifelog
Adobe Reader
Amazon (or other shopping app, i don't always notifications)

Maps (one of the google's service battery drainer app)

Mx player
Airtel app
Officesuite
Pixlr
Playstation
ShareIt
Social life
Banking software (No loss in hibernating)
UC browser (it's 3 services also contribute with others to eat battery)
Vine

And some more...

And not to forget we are hibernating those app means when we want to use we can use it instantly just by opening unlike freezing or disabling

    Ok, it works with root! :D
    I'm not responsable for any damage of your phone. Make a TWRP-backup first.
    Here are the steps for install with LB:

    First I don't know if it's needed but I've installed busybox from Playstore for the last beta.

    1. Download the latest MM for US via Flashtool and XperiFirm or any other .570 ftf for D6503.
    2. Download the 3 files from here.
    3. Then make a prerooted zip with the ftf and the SU Beta, include all data in the zip (tick all boxes for include) but without any recovery. Here a prerooted zip made with prf creator 0.5. It's US 570.
    4. Install the prerooted zip then the byeselinux_flashable.zip and the RICDefeat.zip.
    5. Reboot, after that you can install the latest recovery from here.

    I didn't wipe any data and I came from the Beta .486

    Root and recovery are working perfectly! I will test if there are any bugs.

    I didn't test other scenario like UB or install the prerooted zip on Lollipop.

    The Bluetooth music bug is gone. :victory:
    The WiFi signal is good. I think that SONY made a good job.

    If signal bars are not relevant to the real signal quality, why we need them on the status bar? If the system won't affect the signal the phone gets, why my phone sometimes loses 4G LTE signal with 6.0.1 but never does that with 5.1.1? In both situations, I put my phone at home and it's near the base station. Actually I can see the antennas on the building across the street.
    Signal bars are only relevant to the fact that a phone manufacturer can decide what 4 bars or 3 bars or whatever stands for. The signal strength is measured in dBm and it can be checked in Settings/About phone/Status/SIM status. It is a negative number and thus a higher negative value is worse than a lower one. The maximum (best) value is around -60dBM and at around -110...-112dBm the phone loses signal.

    The manufacturer can decide how many bars are shown at what level. I did a quick check and my phone shows full four bars at -89dBm, which is decent, but IMO not worth the full bars. IMO it should switch to 3 bars at -80dBm, 2 bars at -90, and 1 bar at -100 or so.

    OTOH, the WiFi indicator has gone the other way. It shows less bars now than before (at the same dBm). It switches from 4 bars to 3 bars at -55dBm, from 3 bars to 2 bars at -70dBm, 2 bars to 1 bar at -75dBm.


    Everything in between: It is up to the software to decode the received signal. That I do grant you. If the error correction software etc isn't working correctly, the phone may lose 'signal' earlier than before. There can also be differences in the Tx signal (transmission from the phone). If the cell tower cannot decode your signal, you're dropped.


    EDIT:
    The received signal strength is always the same. If you are, say, in a "-80 area", the signal strength is -80. No matter what the software version is.
