Update Android 6.0 of the Z5 Xperia, removed the STAMINA mode that so many users had been relegated to lengthen the battery life a few hours in certain circumstances. This change received enough reviews, but they were removed in part by the great effect that gets the Marshmallow Doze mode on the autonomy of the Z5 Xperia.
It is now when STAMINA mode has become the new firmware that has begun to be distributed with Android 6.0.1 for Xperia Z5. The firmware version is 32.2. a. 0.24 is coming to the Xperia Z5 (E6603), Xperia Z5 Dual (E6683) and Compact Xperia Z5 (E5803, E5823). The only thing that happens is thus STAMINA isn’t what was, and there are enough users who are criticizing Sony.
The new version of the software includes the STAMINA mode and mode Ultra STAMINA to those Sony smartphones. The latter is the more aggressive and is a way to extend the battery to limit the availability to the available apps to a required minimum. This update also includes the part of security from April 1 and a new way to open the Chamber from the lock screen. Although this form is the basic one included in other smartphones from Marshmallow to launch the camera app with two presses on the power button. Something pretty useless when the Xperia Z5 has a key to turn on the camera directly.
The criticisms that come from XDA Forums related to STAMINA mode, is that it’s just the included battery-saving mode on Android that have called as STAMINA. So better that we make to the idea that this mode in its Lollipop format will never be as it was.
The reason is because Google has forced all manufacturers to play by Doze for battery saving. The previous mode would need to reprogram it from scratch or make modifications to Doze, something that Sony can do.
