Hey guys I know some people know this but some don't.

This works with or without root.

Cell Standby is using a huge amount of juice on some GS6 phones.

To fix:
Hello everyone yesterday I posted my stats and if it would fix, you can find that in my post history. I've been running my phone for over 4 hours and have ZERO mention of cell standby on my battery screen.
The fix was this:
1) turn off phone
2) hold volume up, home button, power button until it boots into recovery
3) wipe cache partition
4) reboot
5) turn ON advanced calling

Give it a day and a full charge.

I am on 18.5 hours with 3% left and almost 4 hours screen on time.

Cell standby significantly dropped drom 30% to 40% and 13 hours battery to
like 15% and 18 hours.

Here is what I did:

- Set up as new
- Uninstalled DTIgnite
- forced to LTE ALL + VoLTE (Advanced Calling)
- WiFi On when plugged in Only
- Low Priority Locations (GPS Only)

I'll come back to my previous post, just finally plugged my phone after 3days of mostly standby and light use.

It seems Android 5.0 has Wifi drain issues. Weird because pre 5.0 that was never the issue. I have noticed this on several phones.

Just tried this, hope it works. Any word on Verizon releasing a software update, similar to ATT/Sprint?
