    Lately i've noticed that my android system is using more than 50% of my battery. I downloaded a battery saving app and its telling me that "sensors" inside of android system are using 56% of my battery. How do i reduce this

    Percentages are meaningless - the question is what and how many wakelocks are you experiencing and how much screen on time vs phone off time your battery gets.

    Well ...

    A defective sensor can be eating battery because it acts as a continuous load. If the phone is under warranty, bring it in and have the sensors checked (or have them replace the phone, so make sure everything is backed up first).

    If it's not in warranty ... to live with it, to pay for a repair, to buy a spare battery (if the battery can be swapped in your phone), to buy a new phone ... those are all decisions you'll have to make.
