For some reason, this sounds pretty high to me!!
Yeap, one time i got that usage too, even if I were not really using it much. And I wanted to ask about sensor usage, wtf is that? One time Android system used very much and today at night internet sensor used at 100%
I think it's more a case of the battery stats getting stuck. Sometimes they report excessive usage for something which has only been used very briefly.
Try rebooting and that should reset it.
Rebooted and now says android system at 80%
Display at 20%
Surely this isn't really a problem? The % usage just shows how the system resources are divided?
If I have no apps on my phone and the screen is off, then Android would be the only resource being used so it would show 100%. If I have 9 apps working for the same amount of time in addition to Android, then each would show 10% (as an example)
Maybe I'm mistaken, but I think the % is relative to other processes rather than an indication of constant use. In the OP's case, it shows that Android used 98% of all process time, not that Android was working 98% of the time.
That was my concern.
Thanks for explaining it like that.
I guess I
You need to give it a few hours to get a better reading. If you are using your phone then it is normal for android system to appear at the top of the list. However if the phone is idle then you would expect to see cell standby or phone idle above it.
Android system encompasses lots of different processes which other apps may require use of. For instance if I spend time playing a game such as smiley pops that will increase the battery stats for android system, presumably because the game is using screen, sound, vibration, etc.
Will keep you posted.
