    So, your display takes up most of the battery use. This is normal, and I'll bet you're just going back and forth looking at the battery use which is causing the display to climb.

    What has your battery dropped to, 90%. That will happen within a few seconds. It's normal for a battery to show 90% as soon as it drops to 98% It will stay that way until it hits 80% then drop to 70.

    I don't see anything unusual here for a Droid Smart phone battery use.

    That's 66% of the battery drop - not 66% of the battery. If you had left the screen totally off, the other categories would simply be higher by about a total off 66 percentage points.

    Go into Spare Parts and look at Battery Info. 4200 (or so) is full and 3500 (or so) is empty.
