    It does look like it's a problem with the 4.0.4 modems. The gs2 has just received the update and someone has reported the high cell standby reading after flashing the modem from the firmware.

    the last update "4.0.4" didn't solve the issue ?

    Samsung haven't released a fix yet. 4.0.4 is the android version. My Galaxy has always been on that. But the latest Samsung version XXBLBF has not fixed it, no.

    Signed. Love the device, but I paid full retail price for it. I expect all the bugs to be worked out of a 500+ device:hardware or software.

    I'm also having the same issue "Cell standby" % is the highest. GS3 on T-mobile

    My phone was 100% @ 11p.m. and the screen was off the entire night. I woke up at 8a.m and my battery was 89%. During that time, I used my phone to check email, send 5 text, listened to spotify for 2hrs, and checked Facebook. Also, I'm using Wifi the entire time. By 2:30pm my battery is at 34%. Is this correct? I barely using my phone and I'm consuming 66% of my battery life.

    Please let me know if there's an issue with my battery or is this all software. I do not want to spend time troubleshooting a phone that I paid for alot of $$$. This is only my 4th day and I have time to replace it.

    Yes, I competely drained my battery and fully charged it a few times.

    At home i'm using Wifi, and Wifi-calling is enable. With that being said, should my "Time without signal 80%", is this correct?

    Thanks for the post, but just want to clarify something. My cell standby is showing over 60%, but does that affect battery usuage? Is 8 hours on battery with 70% battery left with minimal usage normal? I charged the phone before I went to bed, and woke up at 88%...I have nothing sync and wifi and data packet is off...I feel like my battery is draining pretty quick.

    Its nothing to do with actual battery drain

    My battery life has been awful with my gs3. Only getting half a days life out of the battery. Last few days out had a full 8hours charge and was only used for a few messages and 15min of spotify on my commute in to work. The rest if the day it laid at rest until 1:30 pm when it signaled low battery! Battery menu showed that 65% was used by standby ! Only 20% was used by the screen.

    My gs3 also takes a very looking time to charge it seems. Yesterday, after plugging it in at work at 1:30 by 5 it was only at about 60%. And I left it completely alone while charging. Essentially it took 3.5 hours to get a 50% charge? Does that seem right to anyone else ? I came from a BB torch that could take a full charge in a little over 2 hours! So maybe I'm a little bit spoiled but as I'm not a previous android user I'm not sure what to expect.

    @jroy I've noticed the same slow to charge on my Verizon GS3. I don't think it's a problem but more an inconvenience. This battery is pretty hefty. I'm curious if the RAZRMAXX also takes long to charge.

    Petitioned signed.

    After 13hrs I'm seeing the ridiculous calc of Cell Standby usage @24%, but to my surprise the SPEEDTEST app which I ran sometime in the first hour and since then left on in the background , was mad milking my battery usage in the #1 spot @33%! SPEEDTEST users beware.

    So this sticky is for a petition just to correct a display miscalculation? Why not just ignore it? I guess it would be good to know if the cell standby really were high but you can't tell because the display is way off... I'm sure it's easily corrected but I don't know that they'd see this as high-pri enough to drop a standalone update for it. Maybe I'm wrong...

    It's important to be able to rationalise usage. If you can't accurately rationalise what is using it, you cannot easily troubleshoot other battery issues. It is important.

    The standby issue is pretty ridiculous, mine says 20% used in the last hour while my phone was just sitting on the table.

    So tired of this BS

    People just need to realize your battery isn't actually being drained! Currently I'm at 1hr 10m screen time, 12m talk, and 75+ texts in and still have 72% battery after 11 hours of use.

    Thats right. Its not being drained. Just mis-reporting what is using the battery.

    Someone made it sound like this was just for International versions of the phone.

    I have the AT&T version and after 8hrs of sitting on my desk, it has used 18% of battery, 70% of which is cell standby. Does that sound correct? (I haven't hardly used it today though, so perhaps it truly is the cell standby which is why I'm confused)

    I dont think its just the international version.

    my Verizon Galaxy S3 suffers from the "Cell standby". Although like SUroot said mines just reports wrong, it does not seem to affect my battery life. Does anyone know if Samsung is aware of this issue?
  23. SUroot

    SUroot Well-Known Member Developer

    Yes. I reported it to them. Told them what information was incorrect (*and where) and linked them to this petition.
