S7/S8 Battery drain in Oreo?

Anyone on here experienced the issue of Cell Standby drain in Android Oreo on the S8/S7? Quite a large thread here about it on the Samsung community But Samsung won't even recognize the issue.


Basically, Cell Standby is the biggest battery drain taking up 20/30%+ of battery life.

Hi @1irishninja


S8+ here and no problems. Uses about 1% per hour during the night with Bluetooth and WiFi/calling activate which is about right. 


I also run the device maintenance (under settings) at least one per month to give my handset a clear out, or when i feel there is some older rogue app which hasn't closed correctly. 


Seems to work for me.
