Hello, I have Sailfish on my XA2 4113 installed and it worked with the instructions. What strikes me is that the battery discharges faster than my Xperia X. Lost 35% overnight. I use only one card and have everything from out-of-the-way wireless. No apps installed. What could it be or does someone have the same problems?

I had also 40% for this night

Same problem, Sysmon shows high CPU usage during idle times but I didn't find the culprit.

Can confirm on H3113 45 % to 15 % over night.

The consumption is the same, it is high, not a day I come out with little use. Very unusual. Often high CPU utilization. I hope this will help

I have the same problem on my XA2. Battery has enough power for 25-26 hours, mostly idle with screen turned off. There has to be something wrong with background processes. I'm hoping that this will fix itself in the upcoming days because in theory there should be enough battery for 4-5 days of idling around... At least that's what I would expect.

I can confirm this behavior

Battery lost 15% in 4 hours without significant usage. No Sim cards, only one background app and syncing emails every half hour

The same time my xa2 plus running Android lost 10% with usage, with all background services and 2 Sim cards

What app would that be?

System data scope

I cannot find "System data scope" in the store, could you elaborate?

tkteun ( 2018-11-17 16:57:22 +0300 )edit

It is called SystemDataScope and is in OpenRepos.

This has happened in past updates for other Sailfish phones as well. Usually settles after one or two days. Possibly some maintenance routines in the background (for example btrfs-balance) after upgrades. Search for "battery drainage" or the like and you will find some topics about that.

If it still persists in two days, you should check for corrupted background processes. Sometimes "contactsd" or other processes go nuts ;)

that used to be true with btrfs.on.jolla1 but on experia ?

what i do: dont leave browser.running, turn off android support overnight, go into airplane mode

I have noticed that some android processes stay active after closing the app (especially Here), this get the phone rather warm as well...

I have generally noticed Tracker (the software used for media indexing) to activate after upgrades. It is likely due to Tracker itself being updated (and thus possibly indexing better & more things) and various media indexing policies changing (like new media locations to scan or new metadata that is needed to be stored).

Same for me, my XA2+ looses around 25% of charge level in 9-10h idle on the desk (display off)

jollajo ( 2018-11-17 14:43:55 +0300 )edit

25% of charge level in 9-10h idle, It does not sound so bad for me it is drained after 13 .
