    I'm comparing the 2 GSAM battery app compared it with Samsung's management system?
    on my phone Samsung is showing my android system is at 29% and GSAM showing it's at 22%.

    For the life of me i can't seem to get that 29% down i'm pretty sure something is draining it in the back ground and it's affecting my battery life.

    Make sure GSam is measuring from the same point in time as the system's battery monitor. I've seen GSam start measuring from some time after the battery started discharging from 100%, instead of right when it starts discharging.

    Remember also that these are relative percentages, not absolute. So if you're not using the phone that much, the screen (which is usually the biggest battery consumer) will be a lower percentage than usual, which means something else will increase in a relative fashion. Usually, it will be the System. When you use the phone more intensely, I would bet the System's percentage of battery usage drops, while the Screen's percentage goes up.
