    Hi, I love my droid turbo and the battery life is amazing, it could be better however. Going into my battery usage at any given time shows Cell Standby uses about 30% of the battery life. At the time of this writing it was my biggest consumer at 28%.
    Android System-8%
    Support & Protection-8%
    Android OS-8%
    Phone Idle-6%
    ...and so on and so forth.
    At my home the service is a bit spotty so perhaps that has something to do with it. My brother has an LG G3 so whatever cell tower issues we have at home should be the same. His battery usage is similar to mine except Cell Standby is only at about 2-3% at any given time. All of our settings are similar, we use wifi as much as we can, and both have Verizon and use their Global/LTE/CDMA network.
    Is their anything I am doing wrong that uses so much Cell Standby?
    ps I have location completely turned off.

    Welcome to Android Central! Tap Cell Standby--how much Time Without Signal is reported? If your signal is poor, then the cell radio expends more energy trying to find a signal. This is for both voice signal and mobile data, so the only way to avoid that would be to turn on Airplane Mode, since that's the only way to turn the cell radio off completely.
