The Battery Stamina Mode on your Sony smartphone gives you better battery life.

Better battery life

With Battery STAMINA Mode you have more intelligent battery management and can easily improve your standby time by four times or more*. Your phone knows when your screen is off and shuts down the battery-draining apps you don’t need, then starts them up again when the screen is back on.

*Based on testing done with default settings, default accounts and applications for Skype™ and Twitter downloaded to the phone. The more applications installed, the bigger the effect of Battery STAMINA Mode.
