REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 100% (three days now)
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 188.8.131.52
HARDWARE (XA2, X10, X10 II, …): XA2 Plus
UI LANGUAGE: English
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): Yes. The previous installed version had twice the current battery life.
Sailfish OS 184.108.40.206 is giving me half the battery life I had with the previous version. Where I was ending the day at 60% to 70% battery, I’m now on 30%. On day one of the new version it was at 9% when I put in on the charger at 9:30pm; I had been testing out the new version, but it was still an astonishing result.
I updated from the previous Over The Air build. Whether this is a prerequisite for this behaviour I’m not sure.
- Benchmark against the previous OTA release.
- Install 220.127.116.11.
- Measure the battery consumption.
Battery consumption should be about the same as it was for the previous release.
Battery consumption has doubled with 18.104.22.168.
I routinely have the following five applications running (and have had all but one of them - Books - running continuously for the duration of the previous OTA release as well):
- Messages (SMS)
- Piepmatz (Twitter)
- Books (I was using FBReader until 22.214.171.124 but it will no longer run)
- DS Note (Android app for Synology NAS)
- COVID Tracker (Android app for tracking New Zealand locations)
If there is additional information I can provide, I’m very happy to do so.
