About a week ago mobile network standby started showing up at the top of the list for battery drain on my Z Force. Sometimes using 15-16% of the battery at 250-300 mAh, even when I'm not traveling in areas of weak signal.

I Googled it and it seems to be a common problem with Oreo, but I can't find any solutions. It didn't start when I first updated to Oreo. As I said it just started about a week ago. I haven't changed any settings or added any new apps.

Anyone else seeing this happen or have any ideas as to the cause or a solution?

Install something like LTE Discovery and see what your mobile signal strength is. "I'm not traveling in areas of weak signal" is meaningless - the indicator on the screen is pretty meaningless, the numbers will tell the story.

I could try it but the Verizon tower is about a mile away from my home. I can look out my front door and see it. Even closer when I'm at work. As I said I haven't changed anything. I've had this phone almost two years and this just started a week ago.

My wife has a Moto Z and a coworker also has a Z Force and neither have this problem. I don't think signal strength is the issue.

Before I retired my Z Force that would occasionally appear as the No 1 battery user after Oreo. Some days it was at the top of the list and some days down in the middle. I never did figure out why

My new moto phone does this, Mobile Network standby drains the battery 1% per hour with everything off (mobile data can be on or off) . Only solution I have found is to use airplane mode when I dont need mobile signal
