    This is my first adventure into Android since I went to iOS back with my 4S. I love my new S7. But one question I have is, I have had my phone for 3 days and my battery seems to be running down faster than I expected. When I look at the battery usage. The Android System is always first at 30% and Android OS second at 20%. Is that normal? It seems really high. I understanding it happening the first day as it is building files. But 3 days later?

    That is way high for the system and os. They should be both around 8% something is running for sure. On other android devices including my g4, when I upgraded to MM. I had found that a lot of apps not upgraded or optimized. Some even randomly syncing for no reason.

    All depends on what the rest of the phone is doing. If you aren't doing much then the system will account for most of the CPU useage. It's all down to percentages.

    I cleared my cache. i don't have that much loaded yet. I guess I can do a master reset. Unless somebody has anymore ideas? The battery usage is that for just that battery cycle or is it over a course of a few days?

    So it might be higher just because I am not doing much on it. Ok that makes sense. I guess I will see what happens tomorrow at work.

    For some reason It's always been high on my phone, I have an S7 Edge. I also have a Note 5 but Android OS is always high on the S7 whereas on the Note 5, it's 3%. I use both every day just as much and get 3-6 hrs screen time on each and that Android OS % never seems to change.

    I'm thinking this has to be normal because it's not affecting my battery life or usage in anyway.

    Im suspecting that this is just the way samsung and marshmallow are reporting the information to you? Mine is high as well but is not a significant battery drain. I am still getting 5 hours SOT consistently so I don't think it's anything to really worry about .

    My S6 lost about 0.5% per hour idle overnight.

    My S7 looses 1% per hour overnight. It is almost all Android system. It is held awake a lot, and virtually no deep sleep or doze. Something is goofy about that.

    When I woke up this morning. I was lightly using it, trying to figure out the battery usage, I lost over 10% in less than an hour. A lot of this was still Android System.

    Do you have AOS turned on? That may be preventing deep sleep. Also, I note for the first time on a phone, the percentages actually add up to near 100. Thus, if total consumption is quite low mere maintenance of running the phone is going to be a big part of what gets used.

    AOD (Always On Display) should be the correct acronym to avoid confusion.

    No, I have always on disabled (don't want the burn-in). I never got that much Android System usage on the S6. So far this S7 is a step back in battery performance for me.

    But how long does your battery last though? If it's almost all day then you have nothing to worry about.

    Strange mine is doing OK, this is today's performance I have most of the pointless features like always on display, smart stay etc. Should be getting nearly 24 hours with 5 hours screen time based on this.

    O.K. Point well taken. But to be even more accurate AOD is not an acronym, because it does not make up a word, like fubar, snafu, laser or radar.

    I turned off the features that I felt were no real use, I have emails sync set to manual rather than push. Regularly clear cache and do a reset every few weeks on all my phones.
