Have a Sony xperia xa was told battery life was 2days. I get 10hrs maximum.

I upgraded to a Sony xperia xa in February was told the battery life was up to 2days,if I don't use my phone I get a max of 10hrs is this a fault with my phone or just Sony xa in general! Only upgraded because of the expected long battery life. Thanks

It certainly doesn't sound right with so little usage @Anders1975

 

Definitely let us know!

 

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Hi @Anders1975

 

You would find it hard to have any phone that had a battery life of 2 days - you would literally have to have nothing running on the phone.

 

I've had a look on GSM Arena and talk time says 10 hours.

 

I also found this post on the Sony forum.

 

Hope it helps!

Hi thanks for your response, the claim of 2days was from the ee spec's for the phone! I've done all the things on the link you sent have just had a system update from Sony earlier which Ive installed hop this might help! Thanks

Hi @Anders1975

 

The 2 days would of been in reference to standby mode.

 

It did mention on the forum that the update should help - so fingers crossed.

 

Pop back and let us know how it goes!

Yes I thought that, but as I use my phone to send 4/5 messages during the day I can't understand how it uses so much battery! Will message you back about the update! Thanks
