    Well if they offer it free, you can get it and just send it back of they get the issue fixed, if they require it to be returned. T-Mobile does, but AT&T didn't. AT&T didn't offer them free, but some stores would give them free. T-Mobile gives them free to everyone.
    I'll have to look into that but is there any reason as to why the cell standby didn't drain this much on my galaxy s4?

    I don't know.. That is not something I know much about. Let me see if I can get someone that can answer your questions.

    OK, have you thought about taking the phone back to Verizon, having them switch it out with another new one and see if the problem persists on the new one?

    If you are in a very weak signal area , you can enable upsm which should shut off data when the screen is off. You can also do this by Tasker and other third party apps. There are also apps that would let you turn on the data at certain intervals like juice defender. I am not a fan of juice defender, but it could be useful in very weak signal areas if set up right

    What about why the S4 had low standby but the N5 has high standby. Do you know of a reason it would be different for those two phones?

    for high cell standby, try turning off VoLTE or Advanced Calling

    Was the S4 on Lollipop or Kit Kat, there is a huge difference after Lollipop was introduced, a lot of battery drain that wasn't there before, and Standby is one of those. But not just Lollipop, my S6 Edge was very good on Standby on 5.0.2, once 5.1.1 was installed it has decreased, not a lot but noticeable, still can't find the reason why.

    I did turn it off. I did a factory reset too and literally everything else people said to do and nothing has worked so far.

    At this point, all I know to tell you is to return it where you bought it and have them switch it out and try a new one. I'm sorry, that is all I know to tell you.

    Not sure why, but there some differences. The Verizon note 5 supports pcs lte, the Verizon s4 doesn't. Also, the s4 had 2 cellular paths. The Note 5 had only one. The s4 had the baseband chip integrated into the soc, both being qualcomm. The Note 5 has a Exynos cpu with a discrete baseband processor.


    It could also be something else. The Note 5 and s6e are very similar and the note 5 has 15% larger battery. Yet in my usage, the note 5 gets 50% better battery life, if not more.


    Disabling volte and changing the mode to lte/cdma are the only things that I can think of, without root.

    Could this be what is affecting my cell standby? It didn't affect the battery on the GS4 but my signal is pretty terrible.

    Regardless, I am going to go to the verizon store tomorrow and I'll either order a new phone or see if I can test out a signal booster

    Yes, low signal strength will drain battery very fast. I was in a seminar for three days last week, signal in the building was bad (1 bar to none usually). On first day of seminar I went from 98% to 53% in 8 hours with no phone use during that time. Days two and three I switched to airplane mode while in the building and lost 2 to 3% the entire time.

    Yeah I can't seem to get rid of cell standby I even am using doze now and can't get it to go away.

    If you are on AT&T, turn off HD Voice... That should fix it

    I made the switch Tuesday from the iPhone 5s and I'm in love with the battery life on this beast. I'm on my phone all day at work when it's slow and I had to plug my iPhone in by 2 because of horrible battery life. With this phone I sit on it all day at work and don't have to worry about charging it at all!!

    Attached is my screen. I still don't get anywhere near what everyone else is getting. I don't know why my Alarm clock is coming up as using battery because I only use it when it's on the wireless charging pad.

    Outside of that I'm curious if anyone that sees this sees something unusual. And like others my connection here at home is almost always 3G. I don't get good signal here.

    What pisses me off is with my IPhone 6+ it had great reception due to fact I believe they have more radios in their phones or more bands.

    Edit. Can't attach my screen. I have 9 hours 38 min on battery with 20% left.

    Android System 25%
    Screen 13%
    Cell Standby 8%

    Those are my top ones.

    Thanks! Thus is the type info I was looking for.

    I did two speed tests under the 4g network.

    With what dpham00 said above, I think the signal booster is the way to go. Your signal is very bad. I had a similar issue when LTE phones came out and I expected them to have a much better signal than my non LTE phone, which was decent or more. That was not the case.

    Better phone, better radio, right? There was much more involved than just the radio.

    Something I noticed. Cell Standby is third on battery usage at 10% Is that normal? All day I've had a steady signal but mostly 3G since I'm on border of 4g.

    But when I clicked on on it standby was 10 37 min which is where my battery unplugged is at right now.

    2nd on that is Time without Signal which was 0. I take it that is good.

    The 3rd item though says Total Connection Time 2 hours 38 min but I don't get that part. Does that mean that's what data was used by my cell because I have WiFi on all the time and it's a strong signal. I don't have VOIP and I didn't get any calls today or call anyone. What would that be?

    Love this device but having switched from iPhone 6+ I never had to worry about battery on that phone. I never changed many settings or Had to get certain apps to ensure I'd have good battery.

    I got 15-18 hours with pretty heavy usage and I'm doing nothing different on this phone and getting 8-10 and that's with using apps to try and get battery extended. So frustrating.

    Because Facebook does a lot of crap that phone manufacturers let them get away with.

    Do you use Instagram at all?
