One thing you all have to keep in mind is that the percentages you see in the battery usage menu isn't the percentage of the total battery capacity used, it's the percentage of what's used up the battery so far. So no matter what, all the percentages have to add up to ~100%. Usually the display is what takes up half/most of the battery unless you use a data intensive app (such as a audio/video streaming app) with the screen off a lot. So don't fret if you see that the display is taking up 80%+ of your battery, that just means that no other apps have really been running to use it up or that you've actually had the screen on for a while doing other things.
