    I noticed today that Android System has been eating up about 20% of my battery and is constantly running between 3-6% CPU usage according to WatchDog. This has not happened on any previous days and i noticed that my battery dropped faster than normal.

    How much CPU does Android System take on your phones during regular operations and how much overall percentage of battery is it normal for it to consume?

    With 4G turned on and Gmail set to sync, how many percent drop per hour would you say is normal if you don't touch your phone at all during that hour?

    Uh, you can be the judge.

    I turned WiFi off; data on; had all the sync stuff turned on; turned the screen off.
