    Did getting a replacement phone fix the Cell standby issue or does it still persist?
    Just wondering , so I'll know if it's worth the headache or not.

    See my post "Not All S6 Are Created Equal" for my experience with multiple Verizon S6 phones. The one constant I experienced was the cell standby issue.

    Okay lol, I'll just sit with this phone and assume they're working on fixing the bug.
    Instead of exchanging the phone only to receive a defected one. Especially one with a rattling home button.
    Because I'm getting around 3-5 hours SOT (With wifi due to the bug) and it lasts me all day, so I'll just hold onto it and call up Verizon if I find it doing worse.

    I'm hoping it's a software issue and not due to the absence of a 2nd antenna which Verizon depended on with previous phones.

    What carrier is everyone on? Maybe that is part of the issue. Mine is never been anywhere near that high. I checked my gf's s6 and her's was only 6%. We are both on verizon.

    Charging your phone to 100 and only using Mobile Data ( No Wifi) You could get 16- 17 hours using your phone.
    Discharge speed is at 1% per 10-11 minutes (Depending on use)

    You have a different phone than everyone else if you can get 10 or 11 minutes every 1%.
    That would be 16 hours screen on time.
    Even if you got 5 mintes per 1% that would be 8.3 hours screen on time wich I haven't seen anyone post that high yet. Close but not higher than 8.3 hours.
    The average person is lucky to get between 3 to 4 minutes per 1 %.
    Wich is around 5 or 6 hours screen on time. And more are on the lower end of that.

    So if your phone can get 10 or 11 minutes per 1% you have the best galaxy phone ever maid and I wouldn't get rid of it for nothing.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding your post.

    T-Mobile for me. But I've seen the same complaints with AT&T and Verizon users (though it seems to be less prevalent on Verizon). I'm pretty sure it's a Lollipop issue coupled with carrier settings or we'd be seeing more international complaints as well (though there have been some).
