I'm observing a rilevant higher energy consumptions since 1.1.215/16 installed in the same conditions.

  • same place (office) as before
  • 3G
  • email automatic check every 30min
  • Whatsapp open (same version as before)
  • any other settings is the same as before (screen luminosity, signal quality and so on)

In that situation, before this new updates the phone was somewhere between 2.5/3% per hour, now its between 5/6% per hour.

Have you tried some of the available power monitor apps? You may find helpful tips here: https://together.jolla.com/question/40826/how-to-test-an-apps-battery-consumption/

Can't confirm this. On my device power consumption hasn't really changed with the update.

Yes, definitely the power consumption changed for the worse, at least here. Sometimes the device also suddenly drops to 0% and shuts down. This happens when I'm around 45%. A reboot helps and usually the device obtains again the correct percentage. I guess that's a bug of UPower though.

@lakutalo: I'm going to try this as you're proposing, even if I don't any new or different version of apps.. i've approached that way exactly to test new updates in exactly same condition. Anyway i take a look to that link thank you

Can't deny/confirm about power consumption because haven't really monitored, but I've been quite happy with the battery duration. However, as @g7 pointed out, the power percentage is sometimes not accurate/correct. It could state that there's 46% power left and if you reboot, you suddenly have 5-10% more power.
