Sony says Xperia E3 also has a two-day battery life

Xperia E3One of the biggest selling points of the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact is their endurance. The “two-day battery” life that Sony has quoted in all of its marketing materials, appears to be on the money when it comes to real-world use. This has led to wide praise from those that have used the handsets, beating pretty much all other smartphones in their range.

Well, after conducting further tests on the budget Xperia E3 (with 2330mAh battery), Sony says that the handset also boasts an “up to two-day battery”. This wasn’t flagged at the time of launch and is the result of “multiple battery performance tests” conducted during September 2014.

The tests reflected a typical smartphone owner “using the device for approximately 5 hours in a 24-hour period, for a range of typical usage scenarios (calling, texting, web, SMS, games, camera, music and video).” This was under default settings including display brightness of 100Nits and Battery stamina mode off.

Given the reception that Xperia Z3 series handsets has seen, it is no surprise to see Sony making some noise about this. It makes the Xperia E3 an even better option for those on a budget.

    my xperia Z2 battery is draining too fast. when i bought this phone a month ago, it’s battery life was so good. but as the days pass on, it started draining fast. hope some help coming from SONY!!!!

  • haxona

    Look up battery hungry apps and in the worst case do a factory reset. My battery life on the Z2 is stronger than it was back in May so check up what app uses how much

  • IshuZ2

    how do i check it.
    and also please if u can tell.. can we move apps to SD on our Z2?

  • Kabuto Kouji

    this is nothing related to batt hungry apps, i started having the same issue after those “bug fixes updates” on my z2, and i made a complete restore erasing everything! but the drain is the same….after updating firmware… so my conclutions are, that tho show off with the Z3 sony did in puropose that the Z2 battery didnt match up with the Z3 as IshuZ2 said, Z2 ´s battery life was so good. daammm was great but now i think something is going on under the table… just hope this ends with 4.4.4……perhaps.

  • IshuZ2

    i also hope 4.4.4 overcome this battery issue. In starting, at 100% battery my stamina mode show 4 days battery. and now at 100% it shows 22 hours. Why Sony why u screw up things…

  • Jiyeon

    meanwhile my 1 month old z2 gets 20h SOT :D

  • Jiyeon90

    I meant to say 10h SOT, my bad

  • Go into Settings / Power and scroll down, the last option is power summary. Look which apps eat most battery power.
    You can’t move apps to SD on any KitKat androids, except few low-end budget phones. It’s Google limitation.

  • Kabuto Kouji

    yeah that is exactly what im talking about! i guess there is no explanation for that!!

  • shanefalco

    too much bezels and price too high…i prefer android one smartphone!

  • Weird, you’d expect the Xperia Z1 to do even worse then, if there would indeed be something going on under the table. Yet I managed to do a clean install and get 6 hours of screen on time (low display brightness), on 4.4.4.

  • Kabuto Kouji

    mmm… i cant talk about z1 i sold it before the kitkat update man im not sure….about it is that performance that you tell us good or do u have noticed changes affecting battery after updating?

    My Xperia Z has great battery life. In fact, I charged it 2 nights ago and have been using it ever since with no charge. I am a moderate to heavy user, and in fact, the battery just died a few minutes ago. Android 4.4.4 on my Xperia Z has great battery, but to be honest, I could get an extra day when the Xperia Z was running jellybean. But kitkat is beautiful so I don’t mind! :)

    iPhone is not everything it sucks and Sony doesn’t depend on Apple iPhone.
