    Hi guys, been using my new GS6 since Tuesday and was dissapointed with battery. Looked at stats and was very surprised to see the high cell stand by percentage in the battery screen. Here are some screenshots, I'm on wifi at home and work so the fact that the cell standby active time is exactly the same as battery time is telling of a problem. I would say we should hit samsung and google on their social media, maybe that'll get some concerted effort on their part.

    Is your wifi on 5GHz? If so, change it to 2.4GHz. There seems to be a Lollipop bug that causes excessive cell standby battery drain when the 5GHz wifi radio runs.

    @rukbat I'm on 2.4 at work so that doesn't seem to help and noticed that Wed night my phone was connected to the 2.4 frequency at home so doesn't seem to have made a difference.

    @mrgiven you have to know if your router is dual-band or not, if not then you're already on 2.4ghz, if its dualband you have to know which frequency has which wifi name, they show up as 2 different wifi connections in the list of available wifi.

    So it would be dependant on whatever Wifi you were connected to?

    Correct, the idea being that it activates different Wi-Fi chips in the phone and one of them is causing the issue

    Connected to 2.4 GHz here 100% of the time and the standby issue applies to me. So I don't think that has anything to do with it.
