Hi~
Picked up 2 S3's for the wife and myself yesterday morning- One thing I notice right away is that the "Cell Standby" is sucking down battery on both faster than the screen is! Any clues?
I've been on the wifi here at home most of the time.

Over on XDA for the international version this is a known issue. It doesn't appear anyone has confirmed the issue but people are saying that its really not using any more battery than normal, its just a mis-reporting on the software side of things. Not owning the phone myself its hard to say, just passing on what I read.

Mine is staying around 30% also for cell stand by but the battery life has been great.

yep. battery life has been much better than I'd expected ... Still surprising that standby is this high.
