    My s3 is starting to look like an iPhone! The battery is absolutely horrible! I'll post some screenshots to show you guys. What should i do? I'm not interested in rooting or flashing. I'm on stock touchwiz 4.4.2. Please help!

    What were you doing on the phone during that 1h 34m 8s? Is this a sudden change or has it been gradual?

    Hmm. Try this. Worked for me. Will tell you EXACTLY what is keeping your phone awake. Charge to 100% and let this run all day.

    For me it was Google+ trying to sync my photos over and over again even though I had sync off. Just a bug that an uninstall and reinstall fixed.

    Even though you've only had your phone for 6 months, the battery could be a lot older than that. You can get a new battery on Amazon for around $10. It may be worth it to get one just to see if you do have a battery going bad. If it's not that, then you have a spare backup battery, so its a win win either way.
