Conserve battery usage.

Answered

I have a sony experia prepaid phone, which I've had for about 4 months.  It was using up the battery very quickly; although I recharged it every night it would go from 94% to 80% just sitting unused in my bag for a couple of hours! I experimented with the power saving options and found something that gave me 3 days of battery life!!! Only problem is now whatever it was seems to have turned itself off and I can't find what it is to turn it back on again.  Clues: a tiny + sign appeared next to the % of power the phone had left, apps did not update all the time, just when I opened them.  So facebook messages, emails etc didn't come through until I opened the app. A slight inconvenience, but worth it when it meant that I didn't have to carry a charger around with me all the time! Does anyone out there know what it could be, please?

Re: Conserve battery usage.

Hi Madtiger, sounds like the same as on my Sony Experia Tablet.

 

Go to your settings,m and you should see something like a tittle "Power Management"., tap on that then you should see a setting available there called Stamina mode and or Ultra Stamina mode.

 

These are settings that can be turned on to extend battery life for days, this gives a brief breakdown of which ech setting will do for you:

 

STAMINA mode
Disable ‎Wi-Fi®‎ and mobile data when the screen is turned off, and restrict hardware performance. appears in the status bar when this mode takes effect.
Ultra STAMINA mode
Limit your device’s functionality to core tasks such as making phone calls and sending SMS messages. appears in the status bar once this mode is activated.
Low-battery mode
Modify your device’s behaviour, for example, to adjust screen brightness and the screen timeout setting, when the battery level drops below a certain percentage. appears in the status bar when this mode takes effect.
Queue background data
Optimise outgoing traffic when the screen is off by sending data at pre-defined intervals.
