    The one thing about the Z3v that I am most pleasantly surprised by is the fantastic battery life I've been getting since day one. Rock solid. I've never even needed to use the Stamina modes.

    Here's my latest results:
    42 hours uptime, 7 hours 12 minutes screen on time. I'm pretty happy with that. WiFi off, Bluetooth off, everything else on.

    According to your Mobile Network Signal you left the woods twice to go into the city.

    Was your phone in airplane mode or is your reception that bad?

    My reception area is pretty poor. I'm averaging anywhere from 105-112 dBm. I didn't use airplane mode, or any stamina modes. Just left it alone. Screen was at about 60% brightness. You're right, I left twice to run some errands!

    Ok so that is super impressive then. A weak cell phone signal will slay a battery and that phone kept on ticking.

    Yep... Whoever assembled my device at the Sony factory obviously had their coffee that morning! :)

    I am still incredibly happy about the battery life on my Z3v. Normally I charge overnight so I seldom get the chance to go the distance with the battery. I forgot to charge it and I just got two days uptime with 6 hours 50 minutes of actual screen time. Nice!

    What's everyone else getting?

    I can drain the battery in 3-4 hours :)
    On other hand, if I stay away from heavy gaming it lasts me about same as droid maxx did, 6 hours screen time on lte and 8 hours screen time on wifi.

    I just got a Z3v today so I can't reliably speak about the battery life just yet, although it seems pretty good so far. I had a Z2 on AT&T for a while and that one had pretty amazing battery life. One difference I notice is the lack of location based wifi. Am I just forgetting where it is or is totally absent from the z3v?

    Do you mean wifi based location?

    No I mean location based WiFi. It was an option in stamina mode. WiFi would turn off and on automatically when going out of or in to range of saved WiFi networks.

    I actually found the location based wifi apk in another forum, installed it and now it shows up my stamina mode. Battery life so far is amazing. Light use, I know, but it's still 56 hours with 1/3 of the battery life remaining.

    I don't consider that light use (4 plus hours screen time), when you take into account you got two and a third days plus and you still have over 30%! WOW!
