Re: Device Idle Battery Usage
Anyone who says Account Sync uses a lot of battery need to do a little more testing. It may just be me but having account sync is not a problem. The problem would be the rate the account pushes to get new information. I have Gmail, Email (outlook), facebook, instagram, facebook to sync and it's not a problem.

Early before 4.1.1 there was a bug about Cell Standby making it seem like it used more battery then other things, but that was fixed with 4.1.1 for me. So unless you still have that bug, you're phone must be in a location with bad signal a lot of the day. If you indeed get bad singals then the radios will use more power to try to keep or find signals, making the phone use more power while on standby waiting for texts, calls. Do you have wifi calling enabled that may help to enable it to be used. Your overall battery time doesn't seem that bad, just the fact that it uses a lot of juice while idle.
