The Xperia Z can count battery life in its “win” column, following a Feb. 11 report from Android Authority, citing a Russian Twitter account, which says that the next big thing from Sony “outperforms” a lot of solid devices in terms of longevity.
The Xperia Z comes with a 2330 mAh battery that translates to a whopping 11 hours of talk time and up to 550 hours of standby time, based on Sony’s estimates. Now, we’ve got word that the device’s battery life does impress.
According to Android Authority, citing AnTuTu battery tests, the Xperia Z does better than devices like the HTC Incredible S, the Motorola Milestone, the Galaxy S2 or the LG Optimus 2X. They also came across a Russian tweet that had this to say about the Xperia Z’s battery life:
“Tests of the work of the new smartphone # Sony RT @ playd: 4-core Full HD Xperia Z lives longer than Xperia V. pic.twitter.com/RlvoRGKc”
And just to make sure that the Xperia Z keeps going, Sony included a feature called Battery Stamina mode which “allows it to preserve battery life by automatically turning off functions you don’t need to be active when the display goes to sleep and turning them back on when the handset wakes up.”
The feature is something that users can reportedly customize, allowing them to program what it should and shouldn’t shut down while the phone is not in use.
We expect more tests and observations to come up within the coming days as the Xperia Z starts to make its rounds across different markets. Be sure to check back for more updates!
