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.

Simply stop Android support. On my Jolla 1 it massively reduced CPU usage, improved system snappiness, and battery life.

This is about the XA2, and its Android implementation is very different. Also, neither on my JP1 as on my XA2 is Android the culprit, which I've almost always on. It pretty sure is WLAN. Now that I've turned that off, battery use is back to normal.

Any idea what booster [silica-qt5] in my Crest screenshot is? My XA2 battery life is pretty bad (even after the update), but I do have WhatsApp and e-mail open all the time. WhatsApp wouldn't be useful otherwise.

booster [silica-qt5] consistently takes up between 20% to 45% CPU and if I kill it nothing bad seems to happen but it just shows up again a few seconds later.

the same, booster [silica-qt5] uses a lot of CPU, but also lipstick-plugin evdetouch, battery life is too short, sometimes it downs 10 % in the night, sometimes 25 %. What about SD card in phone? It waists some battery?
