Battery use on Android KitKat

Android KitKat reports battery use differently than earlier Android versions.

In particular, the Battery metrics in previous Android versions reported some of Moves’ battery use under Google Services. Now it’s shown under Moves.

We ran a test with Moves on two Nexus 4 phones, one running Jelly Bean and another KitKat. When the Jelly Bean phone ran out of battery power, the KitKat phone had 20% remaining. However, KitKat reported 28% of battery use for Moves, while Jelly Bean reported only 11%.
