    I have set the screen brightness at 30% and it is set at Auto. Smart Stay is off.

    Yet screen is the first usage in battery and second is Android System?

    I have factory reset the phone already.

    Any ideas :)

    Screen should be first. It's the biggest consumer of battery.

    Mustang is absolutely correct, unless you haven't used the phone/screen all day, there could be other apps such as "Android etc" that use the battery more.

    If you are using the phone quite a bit, and notice other apps using more battery than the screen, that's typically a warning that you have a run away application, and at that point you can address the app itself.
