The Sony Xperia Z5 lineup of devices comes with a very useful "Stamina Mode," which helps in saving the battery life of the device. Upon enabling this mode, the stand-by time of the Xperia handset will reportedly be boosted to nearly 400 percent with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board.
Credible tipster @Ricciolo1 tweeted recently saying the flagship Sony Xperia Z5, the mini smartphone Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and the jumbo device Sony Xperia Z5 Premium are set to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. In this update, the already existing Stamina Mode has been tweaked and thereby, the battery life of the handset will be significantly improved.
Technically, the Stamina Mode helps prolong the battery life by reducing the background activities of the device. To be specific, Phone Arena said that the Sony Xperia Z5’s Stamina Mode will not allow apps to get synced. Plus, notifications or incoming messages will apparently not be pushed when the display is turned off. In general, the aforesaid activities use a lot of battery and hence, this new mode helps in cutting down the unnecessary apps and services running at the background when the device is idle.
In addition, this mode reportedly blocks data traffic and in the process, it makes sure the phone doesn’t wake up to update the notification. However, readers should note that this model will not stop the device from getting incoming calls, SMS and MMS notifications. As one would expect, the much-required “Alarm clock” will ring on time and the calendar app will also do the job. The LED light, on the other hand, will reportedly be used to indicate low battery warning.
Specifications-wise, the Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium come equipped with 2,900 mAh, 2,700 mAh and 3,430 mAh battery cells, respectively. These devices will apparently be able to run for two days before looking for a full re-charge. In case, readers would like to purchase this series, the devices are now available via eBay and Expansys.
