Battery Percentage

"Cell Standby" and " Phone Idle" both use 50% of battery power. Is this normal? Seems excessive! A battery booster App was installed and WiFi and bluetooth are not used and turned off.. The phone is only used for texting, photos and telephone calls. GGG

How long is your battery life? If it is multiple days and phone idle and standby is 50% then I think that is good/normal. It means no other apps are sucking power.
Battery life is 24h with little or no use.

If the phone sees little or no use, then yes, I would expect most or all of the battery life would be used by idle or standby processes.
Yes, this does make sense. Thanks
