    Any ideas why "Android OS" is taking up so much battery life? For the past three days my battery life has been much worse and when I look in the battery usuage its always showing "Android OS" to be the highest with a percent of something like 60%.

    It used to be the case that "Display" and "WiFi" were the main cause of drain but now they are hovering at just 10%.

    When I tap on Android OS it doesnt give me any extra details. Also when I browse through the "partial wake lock" usage on the battery left up it lists "Android System" with a 1/4 bar and all the other processes have no blue bar.

    Any ideas what part of Android OS is taking up the battery life? How would I be able to find out whats happening inside the "Android OS" process?

    Thanks for any tips :D

    Check to see if you have auto brightness enabled. That for some reason was using a ton of my battery.

    I do indeed have auto brightness on. I shall toggle that off and see if it makes a difference
