    My new iPhone 7+ has been off the charger for a couple of hours and is showing 1 hr, 2 min of Usage and 2 hr, 45 min of Standby. I was going through the battery life posts and people are getting 30+ hours of standby. Someone please explain standby time to me.

    Look at the battery stats and it will tell you what app is using the battery. Likely an app like Facebook but a lot of the social media apps will suck the life out of your battery.

    I loose about 2-3% over night but it is also checking for mail and occasionally barking at the local cell tower telling it where it is.

    Standby time is literally the entire time the device has been unplugged since last charging to 100%. Usage time is when something on the device is in use, either background or screen on.
