What percentage battery should your screen use?

I'm on android. When checking battery stats through settings, it says that my screen is using 77% of my battery. Is that normal, because it seems like quite a bit? My screen brightness is on like 25%, and I have it set on the screen to shut off after 1 minute of inactivity.

That gauge is not scientific... It's an average for 'recent' use (I forgot the details).
A static destop/homescreen use less than a screen that needs to render some action...

Going from your homescreen, to settings to .... battery actually increases the usage-o-metre.

Also: it helps if you calibrate the sucker now and again.
