    Is it normal for the Android OS to account for 31% of the battery usage? I've never really paid much attention, but I seem to recall the OS doesn't use this much power . . .

    If it's becoming a problem you may want to consider a Factory Data Reset, though I wouldn't recommend that unless there isn't a better option.

    I'm at a day and a half with 30% left on my battery, so I seriously doubt it's a problem. I'm just mildly curious, that's all. I had the notion that the OS used a lot less power than this . . .

    That's like.6%/hour. It's hard to remember but i think that's better than GB was. You got maybe 2 hours screen on time?

    Ditto. Now "Display" takes the cake.

    Yeah, you look fine with those numbers. Display SHOULD use the most power, but 31% for the OS means you have some background applications or widgets or sync processes running. It's no big deal, especially considering your battery's performance as indicated by the uptime since last charge. Also, you can tap the area at the top with the graph to get more detailed information, and can do so for the individual items below likewise. That can help you to understand what's using what. WIFI, Bluetooth and other services will contribute to Android OS usage.
