Great question! "Phone Idle" is when your device is on but not is use. If "Phone Idle" is high it does not mean that it is draining your battery faster, actually the opposite. "Phone Idle" being high in your battery usage is not bad becasue it uses less power then every other app or system process that use the battery power on your phone.
