    I haven't been in a hurry to upgrade to a new phone. This phone has been the best and the battery has been a beast.
    But the last few days the battery has been draining fast. I check the battery stats and it's not any app, it's cell standby. When everything else is using 3-4% battery, cell standby is using 30%.
    Anyone know what might be causing this? I don't understand how cell standby could be using way more battery than apps, or even the screen.

    Can't answer your question about why cell standby is draining your battery but I had the rapidly draining battery problem and found a fix.

    Performed a "wipe cache partition" and my battery is back to normal.

    One reason that cell standby will use a lot of battery if you have a poor mobile signal.
