battery life
 
Hi guys I have noticed the battery seems to drain quite alot when in standby with no apps running. Does anyone else notice this?

I haven't noticed anything odd to be honest.
I get about 36-48 hours total running time (at least 10 hours playing music non-stop shuffled), although I've had my Z2 only a few weeks now.
I tend to disable WiFi and blue tooth, because I don't need those to listen to music.

So what is your battery life like ?
Did you install any additional apps ?

Hi Jafo, thanks for the reply...Yeah my running times are similar to yourself. Its just seems a little disappointing when they reckon up to 22hrs music playback. I bet thats without eq though. I do have some Flac files on mine too which use more processing power so that will shortern the battery life. Guess im just used to the Ipod touch battery life... But ill trade long battery life for the Z2 sound quality any day :)

I've recently upgraded to a bluetooth-headset (Sony Smart Wireless Headset Pro).
The bluetooth-does shorten the batterylife a bit, but it's more than enough to last a day.

Heck, it's the headset that needs recharging as it barely manages 9 hours of music.
The headset is paired to my phone as well so it's doing pretty well all things considered.

I bought it recently and also have this issue. Fully charged before bed time and the next morning (8+ hrs later) the battery was already 93%. Didn't use it at all and 4 hrs later it was 89% :mad:

Haven't installed any 3rd party app at all and during the test no app was running in the background except for the "music" app.
