    Well it's because you have no other apps running. It's a percentage.

    I'm surprised at the posts so far saying nothing is wrong.

    Something is wrong. Less than 9 hours on battery and only 44% is not good.

    Did you try to reboot?

    Try installing GSam Battery Monitor a try and let it run for a day to see what it reports.

    My Moto X used to do this pretty bad. I had read somewhere that when you want to take the phone off the charger, turn the phone off, let it boot to battery charging/charged screen, and then unplug it and turn it back on.

    I know it isn't the same phone, but it might be a KitKat bug. It helped me.

    This isn't odd at all. puremeerkat hit the nail on the head. You have absolutely nothing else running. Something is going to use a large chunk of the battery percent. Your Android OS is artificially inflated because nothing else is using battery at all.

    Go through a standard battery cycle in a day. Browse the internet, play some games, listen to some music, something to make sure more than 4 apps are being reflected in that percentage. Then post the results if you think it isn't normal.

    I just noticed this today on my S5 also. 92% of the battery usage was android os. Screen was 3% and android system was 2%. Weird thing is I have used Google play and the eBay app alot today. Usually these apps show up on my battery usage screen, but not today. I haven't added any new apps, I've updated a few. Something has changed. Now to find out what
