Xperia 10 + XA2 4G battery consumption

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 100
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 3.4.0.24
HARDWARE (Jolla1, Tablet, XA2,…): Xperia 10, Xperia XA2
UI LANGUAGE: Finnish
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): No

DESCRIPTION:

If mobile network is set to 4G, battery does not last a full day (Xperia 10) or barely lasts a day (XA2) even if the phone is idle. If set to 3G, the consumption is normal: Xperia 10 last a day of use and XA2 two days.

From the old forum I have the understanding that this might have something to do with the mobile operator. All my testing has been done on Finnish Elisa network.

PRECONDITIONS:

Finnish Elisa network?

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Network mode 4G
  2. use the device as usual
  3. after some time start swearing because this is still not fixed :slight_smile:

EXPECTED RESULT:

Battery life the same or maybe slightly worse than on 3G network

ACTUAL RESULT:

Battery life so poor that 4G is unusable

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Hopefully there is a fix soon as 3G network will end in 2023.
