    Okay, so my battery usage is 85%, but the apps using the battery only show as having used 6%, so what else is using the battery that isn't being shown 🤔

    What's using the extra 9%?

    I may be wrong, but I believe those numbers are how much of the battery that was used, was used by that app. In other words, you've used 15% of your battery. Within that 15%, the screen was responsible for 3%. Android system used 1% of that 15%, and so on. Many apps may not be shown due to lower percentages. Several apps are probably using less than 1%. But added together, they account for more

    No further to go, that's it. (I knew I'd get asked that question, lol 😁)

    And here's the next one. So now 'the other' is taking 10% of battery usage.

    Not sure that that is what's going on here. 🤔

    I'm one of those people whose battery has started to go berserk. So far I've uninstalled email, always on display, edge lighting, smart view, s pen remote; and whilst the battery drain has slowed down, I now get inconsistent battery usage results 🤔

    (I ordinarily don't have on: location, Bluetooth, wifi, NFC etc so they're not implicated in this issue)

    And another pic, 10% is the difference between the apps total and the overall total:

    Here’s a link to a post by Golfdriver97. It was written several years ago. The images and some of how the battery stats are now displayed has changed but the basic principles of battery usage reporting remains the same. This should help you to understand how the stats are reported and what they mean.

    I'm with music_man185 with this one, I think he's right. It just takes a bit getting your head around it.

    But if the numbers are the percentage of battery-drain, rather than the percentage of total battery capacity, that makes it even more mysterious, because then 94% of the battery drain is unaccounted for in the OP.

    I've had a rethink on this. I'm now also confused.

    I'm pretty sure another poster was right. Of the 15% used, it means that the Android system used 3% of the 15 and so on

    Okay, and the next in the series, lol. 34% accounted for only. So 17% unaccounted for.

    And no, I don't recall this difference occurring in the past with my note 8, or other Android device I owned.

    I'm reasonably sure this started with my battery drain problem that started Thursday ish of last week.

    Edit
    In fact, I recall that whenever I did a spot check as to whether the numbers added up to the battery usage, that they did.

    And that includes my note 9 battery usage, prior to whatever is going on now it used to add up.

    Yeah, I've wiped the cache partition twice now, and it doesn't seem to have made a difference. 🤔

    Okay, so last photo before I charge up. This time there's 56% used by described apps, and 26% by unknown apps / processes.

    Bear in mind that i still haven't re-loaded stuff like email, or always on display etc etc

    Edit
    Samsung push services isn't showing at the bottom of the pic, it's 1%.
