    Phone is running perfectly, so I went to check my battery stats and find nothing is there! I have restarted and still gone... Anyone know why?

    248 days of CPU activity? How long exactly have you had this phone?

    Edit: I have little advice other than that something must have happened to the battery stats file. The only method I'm aware of to fully reset that file is by wiping battery stats in a recovery.

    Wiping the battery stats affects nothing except the statistics you usually see there. There's no impact on battery life/performance.

    Apps such as BetterBatteryStats, CPU Spy, etc. often include statistics about screen time, though I believe they are accumulated via the same means as the system battery usage log (meaning the same issue may or may not manifest itself in some way in those apps).

    Yep. It's usually under advanced/more options somewhere I think. Been a while since I've done it since it isn't necessary unless there's an issue with the battery stats reporting.

    It actually fixed on it own...all I did was charge the phone back to 100%....weird
    It probably reset the stats

    As far as I'm aware, it doesn't reset the whole file, but it does in effect 'reset' the charging cycle it's on. So you get fresh numbers. May be wrong.

    Glad it got sorted out.

    I got it when I met the president of Samsung like 248 days ago... He told me not to tell anyone that I had the phone though so I had to keep it secret
