Default Are the native battery stats accurate?

Hey guys,
I wanted to know if the native stock Battery stats (under settings) considered accurate.
I suspect that a certain app drains my battery, though I cannot see it under the Battery stats menu.

Is there any chance an app drains a lot of battery and it's still won't appear under this menu?

I use it only for total uptime and screen on time. Other is near useless. It always show similar stat whenever you battery draining fast or not.

Not in the slightest when it comes to which app is using what. Get BMP from the play store to check wakelocks and such.

I too only use it for the total uptime and screen time. For specific app usage I use Betterbatterystats and android tuner, both paid.
