There is a mysterious app,
99070 that is consuming power on my Nexus 5X. Any idea how I determine what it is?
There is no option to stop or uninstall it. My phone is a Nexus 5X running stock Android 6.0.

Possibly right answer:
For such a number over 99000, it is the Unix UID for an isolated sandbox process (
In Android's UID system, called "AID". Android allocated 1000 special UIDs for isolated sanbox processes, 99000-99999. Some apps use that for security reasons, like Chrome (Incognito mode).
I use OS Monitor from the Play Store to see what's going on: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eolwral.osmonitor&hl=en .
Here's the Help Page that pops up from the APP. http://www.osmonitor.mobi/maunal/index.html
You can view Processes and kill them or see where they connect to (with a Google Maps view of the IP Address - really nice).
