    My battery has been getting destroyed the last couple of days. The phone's radio is staying active somehow.

    Maybe try a reboot? I notice your WiFi signal is only 50%, maybe you're dropping off WiFi without knowing? There is a setting in the WiFi settings that will avoid poor internet connections.

    Optimum WiFi is a blessing and a curse. If I save my login for it, when I drive it probably goes crazy. The handoffs have been great with the last DT1 update and now with the DT2, but it still is annoying when it interrupts gps to do so and I miss a turn lol.

    Yea, you're probably spending more time on cell data than you think. I tried those cable WiFi's for a while, but had more trouble using them than it was worth. If you want to run an experiment, go into your WiFi settings and see what the option for avoiding poor internet connection says. If the setting is ON, turn it OFF, and see what happens. It that setting is already OFF, then well, my theory is kind of busted.

    I had it checked to avoid poor connections. This is an all of the sudden thing though. I've had the phone for two weeks and this is the first time cell standby is chunking down my battery life. Reset didn't work, might just factory reset for fun.

    A factory reset is never fun. Lol

    Can someone tell me why the dialer And contacts app needs to constantly ping location? They're always on the list.

    I returned my Turbo 2 the other night and got a new one - The reasons was for #1 the screen cover is so soft that I sliced it slightly and I wasn't aware it would do that but I was gonna be patient for that and maybe not but then Thurs I noticed I was down to 50% with hardly using the phone - put it on the charger it got really hot and hit 100% and restarted on its own. Once it came back up it corrupted two apps to the point I had to start uninstalling them just to figure out if an app was the problem. The corruption caused the screen to go blank and lock up. Needless to say I wasn't happy and there was no way I was gonna wait another day to go tell them and get it replaced as I was still within the 14 day time frame. I made it clear that the replacement started a new 14day period and that I would watch this one like a hawk.

    Dam. That's a rare and unfortunate situation. Hope your new one works as intended.

    Being in a low service zone causes Cell Standby to go bananas. I have a steady 2 bars of 4G and the mobile radio is constantly active.

    What is this talk about radio? D2 has a radio like the phone before the bionic.

    *Fixed* after experimenting with turning off a ton of settings one by one, I found the way to stop cell standby drain when in lower reception areas.

    Set location to battery saving from high accuracy. (Battery saving is actually the default setting on a new DT2)

    I was having the same (or similar) problem. Phone reception in my house is 1x or 3g half the time. Phone was also awake 100% of the time. I'm not sure the issues were related, but I did a factory reset and only installed my most important apps and did them one at a time to see if I could isolate if it was a rogue app or if it was systemic.

    I'm not sure what the culprit was, but so far so good. Phone is awake only when I want it awake...but phone radio is still lousy inside my house.

    When you use turn by turn nav on maps it prompts you to switch to high accuracy location setting. So that factory reset very well could have just put your location setting back to battery saving, which is the default at first time startup, that is, if you were having the cell standby issue.

    So, my phone is being held awake 100% of the time as well. Anybody have suggestions? I've already disabled most of the apps, are they any known culprits that come pre-installed?

    That looks like a renegade app. Can you post a SS from Process Stats in developer menu please, and cross reference that with stock battery monitor and GSam battery monitor.

    Yep...that looks very familiar...except your network signal looks better than mine ever does.

    So you never found what app did it? You just did an FDR, and chose not to auto-install your apps?

    Check We Chat how often it's pushing, also check GSam battery monitor and the stock and see if there's a similarity to what pro stats shows. Also hit the hamburger menu in pro stays and change duration to 12hrs or 1 day and see if that changes anything. Based on those stats, it doesn't show what the culprit is.

    Just did an FDR....I'll slowly put apps back on.

    No...never did. And yes, I just did the reset and added apps back. I've got everything that I want back and now I'm fine. I'm at 51 hours with 32% left.

    Anyone coming from the original Turbo notice that with the screen on, the Turbo 2 drains significantly faster than the original Turbo? Sadly, the difference is significant.
