Cell standby

Have Samsung S5 and it's draining the battery like mad. Looked into battery and it says cell standby is using around 52%!! On my husband's same phone, it's around 3%. Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this? I've tried taking the battery out and restarting but to no avail. Thanks.

Re: Cell standby

Yes
Switch off the location service
Set the power option to saver
Change Google Play to manual updates
Set silent time in settings
Change facebook and any other social media app to update every few hours or on demand
Close apps when you've finished using them

Re: Cell standby

Hi missust4

Sorry to hear about the issues you've been experiencing with the battery.

How did you get on with those tips J0hn sent?

I'd also recommend running through the 'battery life' diagnostic flow here which will offer some further suggestions.

Let us know how you get on.

Many thanks
