    Isn't 37% for the system and 21-22% for the OS a little too much for the battery?

    It's been 15 minutes and my battery is already down 10% from a full charge.

    S3 here.

    Yes, there could be something amiss. Post a screenshot of the battery usage graph when you're down to about 30%. Also, tap the graph to expand it, showing your Awakes and Signal history, and post a screenshot of that too. Then we'll have a go at diagnosing.

    Here it is. I don't know why but every time I fully charge the phone, the battery usage is very high. Then after it drains to about 75%, it gets better.

    Also, is this the graph you're referring to?

    Thank you.

    Something is causing excessive Android System battery usage. Check your basic settings. This will help:

    Try also a Cache Partition wipe. If the trouble persists, we'll have to dig deeper.
