    True, but if you can see what is killing your battery, sometimes a tweek of a setting or two makes all the difference.

    When you click on android system, what info do you get? Also, what were the battery percentages? Do you have the Google play store set to auto update?

    Yesterday I went to bed with 68 percent left. It was unplugged around 13 hours iirc. Some pandora, some testing, Internet and games and an hour or so of phone calls. Best phone I've had battery life wise since I had a dumb phone I think.

    I think those who have the Android System process usage so high, might look a bit on the fastdormancy problem of android phones.

    Current Phone Model:
    Samsung Galaxy S3
    Have had my S3 for about two weeks now and the next time it goes for 24 hours without needing a charge will be the first time, even though the phone spends much of it's time sitting dormant while I'm at work or asleep. I'm one of those people who is seeing a high percentage for "Cell standby". I did a little searching and found this link:

    http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/357784/20120629/samsung-galaxy-s3-battery-drain-issue-fix.htm

    This article was from a couple months ago and I just got the phone. Has this issue been addressed already by previous updates?

    (EDIT: I should also note that last night I did the battery cycle for the first time, draining it down below 15%, turning it off and recharging to full. Will see if that helps at all.)

    The only update for the Verizon sg3 just came out in the last week. I know it fixed a brief "no sim card" notice before regaining signal issue that we had but not sure of what else was on the list.
