    Just wanted to report that Verizon GS6 doesn't have the battery drain for cell stand by that we were seeing in the reviews. I know they were using a T-Mobile version, but based what I've seen from over 15 customers and myself and co-workers, it doesn't seem to be an issue.

    Joe, how about Gold's have you seen any of those anywhere? I sent you a PM yesterday can you check that and respond?

    Definitely no 128GB and no Gold as well. I don't expect that to change forum awhile. We had close to 70 Galaxies today and we are almost sold out. Mainly black 32gb, some 64gb. Even white was limited.

    Like I said, Order it, don't wait...

    Not so sure...and this is with 3.5 hours of SOT. Cell standby eating as much battery as 3.5 hours of screen use out of 5 hours off charger. Looks like an issue to me.

    Seems like WiFi was off on OP's screen shot. Maybe that's why there is no cell standby. Did you make sure to turn off always scanning for Wifi, smart network switch?

    Looks like you're having similar issue as me. No way with our screen on time being half of the total off charger time should be less or anywhere near cell standby. That means that this phone is going through battery an equal amount of time whether you're using it or not.

    I've had WiFi on the whole time. I don't even have Advanced Calling activated on the phone yet. I have it set to not search for WiFi when off and most of the time I was at home connected to my WiFi anyways.

    I don't see any VoLTE options on our phone. I think that's our version of Advanced Calling which comes disabled by default. I can't think of anything else besides turning off WiFi (which i haven't tried yet) to see if that helps. It's a viable solution for me if it's a week or so before an update is pushed, but any more than that and the phones going back. Too bad cuz I absolutely love it otherwise. Even though I think I see some scratches. I'm ignoring that and will inspect more tomorrow. Going to do a test tonight and see how much battery drains when I leave WiFi on. I will turn off all edge features including night clock.

    Cell standby is sky high right now 28%

    Same here but that isn't the issue or doesn't appear to be. The device is great and efficient when in use but it drains almost the same when not in use and that's why we get such high standby. If our screen is on over half the time, there's no way cell standby should be using more battery.

    I'll give it a night test though and see. Do you make any tweaks to setting or activate Advanced Calling?

    Pretty much the same as you. I would avg 5sot on my N6, so I don't think so bad for the first charge. I'm doing a lot of playing around with it

    That's really high. My cell standby on my RMHD is 5%. And that is with less than an hour of SOT today.
