    Do any of you just turn wifi off since the cell standby drain sucks battery so bad?

    If you have Verizon or in some other models, doesn't seem to be everyone but a good portion of us... in battery usage, have cell standby drain. It's to do with wifi being on.

    For example, overnight if I leave wifi in my battery will drain upwards of 20% sitting on my nightstand. If I turn wifi off (or use setting to turn off if asleep) I lose maybe 5% overnight.

    I do not turn it off. I was wondering why cell stand-by was showing as such a data hog. Thanks for the answer.

    Cell standby is "Battery used by cell radio", according to the description in Settings\Battery\Use details. I think its normal for the cell radio to use battery.

    I have a Verizon model, and don't see the issue. I turn on WiFi when I get home, and charge the phone overnight.
