    After a recent software update, my phones battery life absolutely tanked. Since I can't post a link to screenshots, all I can tell you is the drain using data was about %40 in 1 hour. This happened the first time I turned off my wifi and started using mobile data instead, which I have done many times before with results nowhere near this level of battery drain. I also noticed a category I haven't seen before called "mobile network standby" which was using quite a bit of battery. I should note, as soon as I switched back to wifi and turned data off the battery drain was back to normal.

    Transcript of battery usage:

    Apps(%1 used by Reddit is fun)--%25

    System(%7 used by Android system)--%23

    Mobile Network Standby--%20

    Phone Idle--%13

    Wifi--%0

    Bluetooth--%0

    Welcome to the forums. What phone do you have and which update did you get? How is your cellular signal? Those numbers could be caused by using mobile data on a weak signal.

    Sorry, I didn't realize I wasn't on a specific forum. It's an LG G5 and the update was to version 8.0.0. I thinks it's unlikely that it's only to do with bad signal, as I just tested it again today while using Google maps, and had the same result with good service throughout

    E: How weak a signal are we talking about here?

    Sounds good. Thank you.

    Just fyi for anyone replying, I'll be asleep for at least the next 8 hours, so don't expect a quick response.

    Thanks for the help

    Hi Fisher, i am using LG for the last 2 years and i am facing the same issue with it. I play games and use wifi on it all day on a sigle charge but as soon as enable mobile data my battery is also starting to vanish in speed so i use mobile data as a last resort and mostly use wifi to stay connect with the internet.
    There are only one solution i had for this problem which is to keep a power bank handy if you need to use the mobile data on a trip or away from home.
