    Hi,
    I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 recently and I noticed that my most battery usage item in the list is 'Android OS'.
    Here is the list:
    Android OS: 55%
    Display: 19%
    Cell standby: 6%
    Phone idle: 4%
    Android System: 4%
    Facebook: 3%
    ....

    Is this normal? Or is something terribly wrong? :(

    Thanks in advanced...

    the top 2 are almost identical to mine.. no major problem. im hoping the update to gingerbread 2.3.4 will fix this.. but i think if u use ur phone more, with the screen on more, ur display usage will be higher, thats wat happens to mine

    Thanks heshan, Yeah. I was wondering why Android OS has most battery usage when I kept the phone idle... I expect too much from this phone, because I was waiting and dreaming for this phone. :rolleyes:

    I used to get high android os from 40-60% until I flashed villain rom. Now its usually 20% and under with a lot better battery life.

    My usage is similiar.

    I think the cause for this are apps with background sync and widgets, as these will wake the os to update.

    Its a bug in the firmware not the apps. I have the exact same apps as I had in the original firmware but my os has come down to 20%
