If your standby is high, it probably means you haven't used your phone very much since most of the battery used up is from it in standby. If you're constantly playing with it, then obviously standby is going to have a lower percentage because it's never in standby.
This makes sense to a point. If the phone is locked and not being used, standby would be the main battery drain. However, why does it continue to drain as much as it does is the question. If it's just sitting there, with everything turned off, it should last for days. Based on my tests, with everything turned off (though not in Airplane mode) the phone will last for ~35 hours, and half of the battery drain will be from Cell Standby. That's disconcerting, and a puzzle I'd like to get to the bottom of.
I don't really want to have to turn my phone off every night, but that seems to be the only option other than leaving it plugged in all night which is a bad idea.
