    I got my battery tuned in from using about 60% down to 42%. But now it says Android OS is using 42% also But up from about around 20%. What would cause that? Is it normal?

    There's been a crop of problems recently with Android System and Android OS causing excessive battery drain, especially over in Ask A Question. I take it you've tried the simplest thing, a soft reset? Has worked for me on two occasions in the past.

    I'll just mention that my problems above were not on my G3.
    G3 soft reset is done by long-pressing power button and powering off....then restarting after a few seconds. Or you can remove/replace battery, which has the same effect.
