    I'm getting good battery performance but am a little concerned that "android system" usage appears to be unusually high, despite great deep sleep numbers. Anybody else?

    Thanks for the input. I'm mostly curious to see if other Droid Mini users are seeing the same thing as me.

    Could some other Mini owner please post a screenshot so I can see if it's normal to have high "android system" in battery stats? Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue on my Mini since I got it last week. I had removed my corporate email account for today to test and it was only a slight decrese. Today was 25% for android os and 15% for android system. I'm going to disable 'touchless control' for tomorrow and see if that has any change.

    For what it's worth all of the new droids and the Moto X seem to have the same problem. People still seem yo get decent battery life, but I think it could be even better but for this android OS/android system issue.

    I wonder if the active notifications has something to do with this. Because it has to be monitoring for stuff even while it is idle

    I had the same thought so I disabled active notifications on my X. It did not seem to improve anything. Haven't tried it on the Mini yet.

    Thanks. Your android OS is still the second highest behind screen, like many people have commented.

    Ummm I think that you need to go back and look at your screen shots. Second highest yes but thats normal. Percentage wise yes, you have issues. Do a factory reset.

    I have a maxx with the same problem and it would drain 10% in 8 hours doing nothing. I disabled command center and rebooted and battery life has improved. Command center seems to have kept the GPS on even if I turned it off with a toggle.
