    I don't know, I just checked my Z30 and it doesn't show up, I just opened up a couple of Android apps (Showbox, Avia Media Player, and Chromecast), and they did show up in the cpu page, but when I shut them down, they disappeared from the cpu page.
    Are you running an official OS, or a "leak" version?

    That's typical Android. Been using them for 4 years and the battery will always get really hot when I'm using intensive Android apps or playing games. This is why Android always needs higher hardware specs to perform well. It is such a fragmented ecosystem that apps are not optimized for any hardware specifically. A lot of apps will get around this by running on pure software which requires more power. Hence the cpu hog and faster battery drainage.

    What Blackberry is trying to achieve is to create a virtual machine that could run Android apps. Android apps is what it is so expect to see high cpu usage and faster battery drain.
