    Default My Note 3 just drains battery quicker than before. please help. :)

    Hello Im new in this forums, please be gentle. Anyway, few days ago the battery life of my note 3 was pretty good, i played games for a long time, watch 1-2 movies a day and call and text with it and still it has enough battery in the night but now i noticed that it drains battery much faster than before, i didnt download any new apps or did an update cause there's no wifi in my present area. im now sure how the sudden change. as i can remember i just disabled some apps(which i cant remember and im pretty sure they were insignificant).

    Any opinion please? Thank you!

    Download an app called Wakelock Detector, it should tell you what the culprit is

    It tells you what's keeping your phone "awake." Most of the time that's what causes the battery drain, so if it shows Facebook for example at the top of the list, then Facebook is keeping it from going into deep sleep, causing it to drain faster

    It doesn't close apps. All it does is tell you which apps or processes are keeping the phone awake.
    For example, something like this would mean that Facebook is keeping the phone from going to sleep. To avoid the drain, you would probably want to either delete the app or make it so that it isn't constantly reporting your location or sending you notifications

    I log out of my Facebook every night. It's one app that I use every day all day and it drains the battery. I hate it. I use the browser sometimes.

    Yeah, you still have to eliminate the issue. Post screenshots of your WLD report.
    I don't have a Note 3, I have an S4...

    I am also having battery drain in my Note 3. The cause is a bug in Android OS that prevents the Note 3 from deep sleeping. See also the thread:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2546910

    The only solution is to do a soft reset every time the problem starts. I also saw another forum in which they say the problem started after MJ7 update:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2579075

    I have tried many things now without rooting my Note 3 but nothing fixed the issue. Maybe only the kitkat update will fix this or will cause even more problems

    That's one of the reasons I will not update Android.I keep the version that came with the phone.I had the same experience with the N1.Battery life was good but with every Android update I found the phone using more power and not going into deep sleep as much.

    There could also be another reason for the drop in battery life.With the Amoled display on the N3,you get more life watching movies than you would surfing the web.It depends on how you are using the phone that particular day.

    I agree with you about the different screen time depending on what your are doing, but my issue is really related to the background processes that prevent my N3 from deep sleep. When my N3 is deep sleeping properly I can easily go through 2 days with the same battery charge but when it's not deep sleeping the battery last only 1 day.
    I did the update from MI7 to MJ7 3 days after purchasing my N3. I am very regretted about this. It is a always a good advice never changing in a team that is winning
