Stamina Mode on the Sony Xperia Z shown off on video

Stamina Mode on the Sony Xperia Z shown off on video
One of the features that make Sony's new flagship so cool is the so-called Stamina Mode. Simply put, it turns off the functions you don't need when the smartphone isn't in use, thus dramatically prolonging its stand-by time. At the same time, the user is free to whitelist certain features and applications that won't be affected by the battery saving mode, such as Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, notifications, and more. When enabled, Stamina Mode could potentially boost the stand-by time of the Sony Xperia Z by up to 400%.

To get potential buyers more familiar with Stamina Mode, Sony just posted this promotional video on its Facebook page. Check it out if we've sparked your curiosity, and if you'd like to learn more about the company's new flagship, feel free to read our Sony Xperia Z hands-on review. Plenty of photos are also available over there for your viewing pleasure.

Sony should release their products quicker, while people are still talking about them.

Where do you live? Where I live, Xperia P has been long 2nd bestseller android after GS3. There are loads around. And they are also heavily promoted by the carriers too.

I'm liking this phone more and more. I'm due for an upgrade and was tempted by the Xperia T but some of the reviews saying the battery wasn't great put me off it slightly. Hopefully the rumours saying this will be out on Feb 18th are true.

Dont know how much this would help. I think the best thing that Android can do is not to have all those applications running in the background. They occupy memory and also siphon some power, however less. If that can be addressed along with the option of turning off some cores when you dont need them like with SetCPU I am sure all androids would have great battery life. All the above + Project Butter = DROOL!!! DROOL!!!
