    Hey guys,
    I transitioned from my original Moto X to an S6 a couple of weeks ago.
    I know battery life isn't supposed to be great on this phone, but it is worse than I expected. It's 1:30pm and I am at 50% and have not used it that much. Looking at the battery page in settings, Android system has taken up 18% and Cell standby has taken up 15%. The next biggest detractor is Screen which is only at 4%. I don't remember cell standy and android system taking up so much battery on my Moto X. Is this unusual? My phone also seems to heat up easily. I am on at&t and use Nova launcher as my home screen (I used themer as well which was not any more efficient).

    Welcome to Android Central! High Cell Standby usage often indicates that you have generally poor cell signal--this causes the cell radio to work harder to get the signal, which uses more battery and generates heat.

    Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).
