    Hey guys , i usually unplug my phone at 100% and i notice something weird about the battery. It would drop to 97% after sometime without me even using it and it would stay at 97% for some good amount of time.
    Thanks in advance.
    Steven.

    hi everyone....i m sure many of us are facing issues regarding "mobile standby" battery consumption whether in beta or in stable OS version.i searched the forum and found that its a bug.here i did something that worked for me....currently in beta 27 for OP3.
    1.Dial *#*#4636#*#* in dialer.
    2.U will get "phone information" option.
    3. In that u will find "mobile radio power
    " toggle button.
    4. It must be ON.Now turn that off and wait for sometime ,may be 1 min.Than it will automatically gets ON.
    5. Once it shows ON,reboot ur handset from that page only.
    Thats all worked for me and the mobile stand by was gone from battery statistics
    here are some screenshots.....good luck

    Hi

    After a lot of online searching, I finally found a way to solve the issue that comes after updating to Oreo. Steps are listed below.

    1. Open the dialer and enter *#*#4636#*#*

    2. Click phone information.

    3. Find set preferred network type, choose the one that suits you. I am on AT&T, so I choose LTE/WCDMA, it was TD-SCDMA before I changed it.

    4. Reboot the phone and you're good to go. I have attached my battery status below.

    Note that after the fix I don't feel any battery life boost, only the cell standby doesn't show absurdly high. I was having decent battery life even when the issue was there.

    I edited this post on my phone, thanks and happy holiday

    Joe

    I'm using CB 3.5.4 without any 3rd party apps installed. Battery drains approx 10% overnight or without any use.

    Must be due to some background apps or process running in the background ... Monitor ur battery drainage carefully

    Calibrate your battery perhaps? Personally I wouldn't care much.

    During sleep you are not engaging with the phone so Doze* does it's work & prevents the phone using much battery by limiting the process in the Background.
    But in the day the phone is in use much more then night like Moving with you so Gyro sensor is in work,Signal Drops depends on your changing location Etc.
    Doze..

    Make sure to turn Off the things like WiFi,Bluetooth,GPS when not in use to prevent searching and using more Battery...If you already not.

    well , thanks for the information tho.
    Just one more thing , if the phone is fully charge and i leave it plug in , compare to a phone that i unplug when it reached 100% , will the phone that is plug in last longer than the other , like the battery drain slower ?
    I try doing both the one that is plug in after it reached 100% seems too drain battery slower. Any idea why ?

    Sounds like a visual bug, nothing else. Try using an app like GSAM or BetterBatteryStats for more detailef battery usage info.

    It's not good for the Battery when you keep plugged in after 100%...nowadays most phones stops charging after 100% so some additional time is OK (only when you forgot to unplug) but not always.

    Please refer to this Link for more Information :- http://www.sciencealert.com/here-is-the-best-way-to-charge-your-phone
    Battery drain is much more talked issue....
    Some cause pop up eventually and gets fixed too .
    Read some more here too

    ..and keep your all apps updated mainly like Google Play services.

    I am having the same issue from last three days.. and I talked to customer service, they told me to reboot the phone with volume down key button+Power button--> wipe cache and data-->wipe cache. Still the problem remains the same. Then I checked the battery option in Setting menu..and the issue was MEDIASERVER which sucked 42% of my battery in just 1.5 hrs. Did you check this issue in your battery? And if you find it Please help me to resolve the same.

    Likely working as intended. The battery is never actually charged to 100% because doing that would damage it, instead software is programmed to show it charged up to 100% and then pretend to drop to prevent people wondering why their phone can't charge past 97%.
