    My statistics of battery usages: screen is 52%, telephone standby is 20%. These seem be too high to me - what could be the problem?

    Screen will always be the biggest user of battery. Screen at 52% just means that nothing else is using the battery.

    Remember, those percentages are of the total amount of battery used, not of the total battery capacity. So if you're down to 90%, you've used 10%, and the phone standby has used 20% of that, or 2% of the total battery.

    Also, the weaker the phone signal, the more current Phone Standby will use. If your carrier doesn't give you good coverage where you usually are, you chose the wrong carrier. Choose carrier by coverage first, then - if there;s more than one with the same coverage where you need coverage - by price, phones available or options. (My second choice is always GSM - a weak GSM signal is a bit staticky, and after more than 60 years in the communications business I'm used to static. A CDMA (Sprint or Verizon) signal that gets weak sounds like Auto-Tune on steroids, and that bothers this old sailor's stomach for some reason. A Nor'easter doesn't bother me, but a CDMA signal going digital does.)

    So I always used to think, but I've seen Facebook Messenger topping the usage stats more than once on a friend's phone. I should not myself have thought it possible, but there it is.
