Not sure if you are familiar with android devices but resets more often that not sort out little niggles like thesr.
If that fails, sounds like Sony need to sort it out in an update then.
Edit: after idle, what's the next biggest drain?
Can't really compare to Nexus 5, its running different version of android, and more importantly on different chipset (probably, didn't check), and different kernel.
Well of course it should be better on ZX1 since its not connected to GSM networks etc. Wonder how much Sony put effort to tweaking the kernel for this device.
My old android phone(Desire Z) could do below 1% per hour on power consumption with the right cpu tweaks (importantly under clock to ~300MHz on idle). I did notice form this thread that ZX1 has been rooted, so the kernel could be tweaked to lower power consumption and better memory management, wonder if there are any tweaks released/devs working on em?
Also sony may not have been so concerned about idle since its a music player so they might have assumed that it will be turned off when not in use, unlike phones.
I'm just a lurker on this thread, looking for some good player, maybe this one or cowon P1, or Cylax M... But still holding from getting one of em.
