    the GSAM app on my HTC ONE M8 says that my app usage is higher than my screen and three of the main battery drainers are: Kernel (Android OS), Android System and System (Mediaserver).

    I use my phone properly, charge it very well and have had 4 android phones. None were like this.
    I have the latest firmware for the M8 (4.4.4).
    My screen on time is not that good now, around 2-3 hours but when I first got the phone (3 months ago) it was 4-5 hours.

    How do I reduce those 3 apps to make it last longer?

    I have quite a lot of views but no answer? Does anyone know?

    I wish I could help you, but I am kind of in the same boat. Installed GSAM a while ago on my S3 as I was having some wicked battery draining issues...read as having to charge my phone several times a day all of a sudden despite not changing my phone use habits.

    Here are my 3 main battery drainers
    Android System 22.4%
    Google Search 16.1%
    Kernel 8.4%

    The google search puzzles me. Not sure how to stop that from running in the background.

    If anyone has any tips, they would be greatly appreciated
