Has anyone else noticed the Cell Standby Battery Usage on their S3 to be really high?
This is being reported in various versions of the phone: http://www.itechpost.com/articles/3095/20120628/samsung-galaxy-s3-misreport-battery-usage-fix.htm
Appears to be a simple reporting error but the only fix for it right now is for rooted phones. Wonder when there will be an official patch for this?

my new GS3 battery lasts about 6 hours with maybe a little bit more than moderate use. what's wrong here? I bought this phone against HTC One X because all the reviews say HTC one X battery is not as good as GS3 but I can't imagine any other phones would have even worse battery life. While I like this phone the battery life just sucks balls.
My battery drain was horrible too and I was reall regretting switching to this device from my iPhone 4. I swicthed to power saving mode, turned off my GPS location service and the battery drain is 100% better. I also close all opend apps from time to time and clear the ram. Remove all auto sync accounts if you dont use them.
recently I tried LTE, and it's draining battery like crazy and the phone is warm... I switched to 4g and i'm at 75% left after a day of use and cell is cold...
I'm also having the same problem. I seem to be losing battery at a rate of 10% per hour.. before my work day is done, I already have to charge the phone again!
My cell standby is ridiculously high as well, I've tried getting rid of all my apps, my power saving is on, my display is extremely dim. I've even had a Rogers rep tell me to turn off my data completely. Seriously? Isn't the point of having this phone to have data? What's the point in me paying for data then?
I ended up trying it out, turned off data, even switched my network to 2G and it still lost at 10% per hour.
I keep getting the same questions, 'what apps do you have?' from rogers. I've even wiped out/resetted the phone to see if it'd make a difference, but there's no difference. It appears there's quite a few people having this problem, but when I talked to Rogers about it, the rep told me no one has this problem and it's 'doubtful' that it's the phone itself.
Great customer service.
