ANROID System Battery Drain, Cell standby, GSIFF Daemon
Thursday 11th of October 2012
Sprint S3 I've noticed that there will be times that under batter settings, ANDROID SYSTEM will use anywhere from 35-70% of the battery, causing it to quickly drain. Resetting, and taking out the battery doesn't do anything. I also cleared cache and it didn't solve the problem. I charged the phone to 100 until the light turned green and that seems to have worked as now the Android system is only using 4%. However, "Cell Standby" is now up to 46%. It's as if cell standby and android system take turns switching on being the greater battery drain. When Android System was the primary problem, I hit the refresh button on the top right corner under the battery setting and it would say, "GSIFF Daemon" which after some research seems to be gyroscope related. I was getting great battery life prior to the latest Sprint update for the phone. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
S3 Battery Drain Thread - 1) False Cell Standby report 2) Standby Drain
Friday 24th of August 2012
Hi,I have read many battery drain issues on this forum and many other forums, I have also contacted Samsung directly regarding the issue. The battery life is good when I'm using the phone, the problem occurs everytime the phone is in standby mode. I realise that there are two separate issues going on here;1) The falsely reported cell standby figure, which is not related to the actual battery drain, only the report percentage used for cell standby. This is important because the false report makes it incredibly difficult to pinpoint the cause of an actual battery drain issue, such as in 2) below. For the false cell standby issue SUroot has kindly set up a petition to send to Samsung in the sticky section of this forum. Please see a fuller explanation and sign here; Cell Standby issue - please sign "petition" for Samsung2) An actual battery drain whilst in standby mode. I understand this issue does not effect everybody, but it does affect a lot of people.I have been testing my battery drain each night and the average drop is 6.21% per hour, so 50% drain over the course of an 8

Dear all, help is needed since my new Onda V811 can't last for more than 2 hours.... i'v checked the battery Usage, and surprised to found that 80% of my battery is used by cell standby, so, immediately, i activated the Air Plane Mode without any progress... i searched a lot on the net, and reached to the result of deleting the phone.apk, telephonyprovider.apk, dialer.apk, also some suggest to modify and text file ( i forgot its name) from nophone=false to nophon=true.... for me all those procedure makes a sense, BUT the main problem now, to do it, the tablet must be rooted... and i failed to root it... so, it will be a great help to advice me how to root my Onda V811, or how to stop cell standby from draining the battery....Update: i tried the method in the "**New** Root and Full Working Play Store and Google Apps/Root-Explorer" thread, and i put root.zip and factory... in the SD Card, and went to recovery mode and choosed update from TF Card the root.zip and restarted the Tablet, without any progress!!!Emran Matalka...

Battery Drain with Cell Standby
Tuesday 10th of January 2012
Hi all, I just got the SGT 7+ (P6200L) and, for now, plan to use it only as a tablet not a phone. I have noticed that, right out of the box, the battery was drained so quickly (last for less than a day of very light usage). I checked "Battery Usage" in Setting menu and found that "Cell Standby" is taking 70% of battery usage. That is very stange since I didn't even have sim card installed. Does anyone has the same problem or know how to turn off cell standby feature? I've read the review from serveral website that this tablet has a very good battery life. I wish it could last 2-3 days in tablet mode without charging.

Plus you have to realize that 50 % of 42 min is not that much. On little use I almost made it to two days before I was down to 20 % and plugged it in. My cell standby is usually around 20 %. So I wouldn't be to concerned with cell standby being 50 % of your battery after only 42 min. Plus you have to know that 90 % is somewhere between 90-99. I leave GPS turned off all the time after learning of that problem they found about the GPS, see the post Aminaked put the link for. Also if you have Wifi at home you will use less battery power being connected to that than your phone trying to search and keep 3G signal.
cell standby battery drain when i dont have 3g support on tablet

hi there, the battery monitor app is showing huge proportions of the battery drain attributed to the cell standby, i have stock jellybean.i found many references to this problem on the web. my issue is however that my tablet has only wifi, no cell hardware. is this misreporting by the app, or are there parts of the cpu that still use juice for cell standby , when there is no cell hardware? thanksf
Cell Standby and Battery Use
Tuesday 04th of March 2014
I got this Tab 3 7" free with my S4 phone, and it's kind of nice.But the battery discharges a good bit faster then my S4 or my Note 10.1 2014 tablet. When I checked, "Cell Standby" has the most draw, 32%.Problem is, I don't know what it is. My S4 and Note don't have it. Their big draws are the screen. I'd like to try to save battery with the "Cell Standby", if someone can tell me what it is.
Battery Drain (~ 8 hours of life) 'Cell Standby' problem
Saturday 08th of March 2014
Hello, i've had a SGH-i535 D2VZW Samsung Galaxy SIII for almost a year now, and while it's an excellent phone and is reliable to a fault, i've had a battery drain from Hades for as long as i have had the phone. at first, i figured it's the usual 'Android sucks on battery life' kind of thing, i mean, i came from an iPhone 4 and iPad 3 and i've yet to see the Android tablet or smartphone that can get as much battery time as either one of those (a day or more) so i just let it go. but after seeing quite a few battery stats posts in the CyanogenMod page on Google+ i knew something was odd about my phone. in my stats, no matter the signal strength, 'Cell Standby' is always using a good percentage of the battery, even when i'm using the phone heavily, or if it's just sitting in my pocket doing absolutely nothing. the percentage is always at or above 50%, and is always the top consumer:This was after 2 hours in my pocket. maximum standby time varies between 4-8 hours when used heavily or 8-12 hours doing nothing. I have tried:1. multiple ROMs, some custom, and going back to stock2. full wip
