Sony Xperia L1: Autonomy and Battery Test

Sony Xperia L1: Autonomy and Battery Test

The Sony Xperia L1 is a model with input hardware and intermediate price that arrived in Europe recently, being kindly given by Sony to Awaqa so that it could pass our careful analysis. As this is no reason to spare criticism or praise if the device deserves, the time has come to talk about a delicate point: its battery.

The device has basic specifications, having a MediaTek MT6737T chipset with eight cores up to 1.4 GHz, ARM Mali-T720 MP2 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD up to 256 GB. This in conjunction with a 5.5 inch “only” HD IPS LCD screen theoretically should be able to provide reasonable performance, but in relation to the consumption, we are not so sure since it included a battery of only 2,620mAh.

For all doubts, we performed a thorough test on a number of specific consumer scenarios, including video playback, video recording, video calling and voice calls, as well as how long it took to be charged with the miserable 0, 85 A delivered by Sony in its packaging, and all this you check in the video above.

Now, we will perform a test simulating a more real use with the device throughout the day, following the methodology below:

  • 6 minutes of use (each) – WhatsApp, Youtube, MX Player (the same video in both in Full HD), Spotify, PowerAmp (offline music) and Chrome;
  • 1 minute (each) – Pokémon Go, Asphalt 8, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5 and Injustice;
  • 4 minutes of calls in 3G / 4G;
  • 2 minutes of use (each) – Facebook, Gmail, and GMaps

Several cycles will be repeated at intervals of 30 minutes until the device’s battery is fully consumed. In this way, we will have a more precise idea of the real autonomy.

Are you curious to see how the Sony Xperia L1 will go? Set your alarm clock to 8:00 am (European time) tomorrow, May 28, and follow our test in real time!

Results

We get the Sony Xperia L1 all day (or almost) on our battery test to get the results you give below:

  • It took 3 hours and 23 minutes for the standard 0.85 A Pony Charger to fully fill the battery; After 1 hour connected to the outlet, you get approximately 33% charge.
  • After 12 hours and 16 minutes the unit still had 1% of the remaining charge, just enough for you to run to a power outlet.
  • During the test, the Xperia L1 remained with the screen on for 6 hours and 13 minutes.

We performed 8 cycles of tests that included:

  • 48 minutes browsing in Chrome;
  • 240 minutes of WhatsApp, Spotify, Music Player, Video Player and YouTube (48 minutes each);
  • 48 minutes of games (Pokémon Go, Subway Surfers, Injustice, Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5 and Candy Crush Saga);
  • 48 minutes of Facebook, Gmail and Google Maps (16 minutes each);
  • 32 minutes of voice calls via 3G / 4G;
  • The temperature remained between 25 and 34 ° C.
  • Standby consumption was close to 2% every hour

Conclusion: Sony Xperia L1

The Sony Xperia L1 certainly is not the model most suitable for those who have a more intense use pattern, which was already expected when we look at its huge 5.5-inch screen and its battery of only 2,620 mAh. The curious point here is that the device is quite heavy for the materials used in its construction, in addition to being thicker than many with this screen size, which leads us to wonder why we have such a small battery.

If you have a lighter usage pattern, the little more than 6 hours of the active screen should be sufficient to provide a range for the whole day, however, you have to keep in mind that chances of it leave you in the hand even early in the night If you leave home very early are high.

Transmission closed!

And that’s it guys, the live is getting around here. We will update the matter with a graph detailing the consumption, as well as some results achieved and a conclusion about the autonomy of the Xperia L1.

02.24

Still, according to Sony’s own management Chrome was the app that consumed the most, while Facebook was the least harmful to the battery.

02.23

As previously stated, GSam was not able to collect application consumption data, which makes it difficult to compare with other devices.

02.22

Sony Xperia L1: Autonomy and Battery Test

Obviously, our test stays here, but do not leave that we will publish some more screenshots with detailed consumption information during these almost 12 and a half hours of testing.

02.21

We managed to finish the eighth and last cycle with 1% remaining battery!

01.24

After this standby time, the Xperia L1 remains at 11% load. We will then go to the eighth and final cycle to see if it lasts until the end.

We’ll leave him aside for a few more moments and then we’ll come back to see if he can handle the eighth cycle.

00.50

So far we have 5 and a half hours of the screen, which means that by the end of the test we will probably be in the house at 6 o’clock.

00.49

We finished another cycle, with the Xperia L1 now showing 11% load. Does he survive another round?

We’ll leave it aside for a little while and then go back to cycle number 7.

28/5/2017 – 23.20

As can be seen, the temperature of the appliance did not exceed the 33 ° C range at any time until now.

28/5/2017 – 23.20

After the sixth cycle, we are now at 25% load.

5/28/2017 – 22.18
