    Hi guys I've got a uk note 3, and the past month or so the battery life doesn't seem to be that good, read about most guys on here can get over a day without any problem, but for some strange reason I barely make it the full day. The only thing I do is go on Facebook every so often and whatsapp and that's about it. This morning, I unplugged my phone around 9am and went on Facebook for a few mins and it dropped by 2percent.

    Planning to buy a aftermarket battery with a bigger mah to see how it goes, but don't want to change my back cover so I can for the battery. Any suggestions what I should do?

    Investigate. Signal strength, screen time and an app doing a lot of background services and/or hung up are the three biggest battery hogs I've seen in the forums. Go to your battery stats and see if something is using a lot of battery. Screen will usually be the highest. Also if you select the chart it will bring up signal, awake time, gps and a couple more so you can get an idea of any issues. Search the forums. There are many battery threads with many suggestions.

    I'd you have a weak data signal you use more battery in addition to running a little hot. Is your phone ever hot?

    Install GSAM Battery monitor and Wakelock detector, let your phone run unplugged until a low battery, and see what causes this.

    Just a quick update guys.

    I manage to pick up a genuine Samsung battery last week and so far I've not notice any changes.
    I unplugged the phone at 9 today and at 16.00 it's sitting at 58% surely the there's something draining the battery. Click image for larger version.

    You can take screenshots of all your settings pages, just wipe over any personal account email and IMEI number.

    You phone dropping 2% when taking it off charge is normal to me.. Mine does that without using it sometimes. Just means if you let it drop to 1% it lasts longer then

    Usually clearing the ram and or restarting helps batteries. Android runs an absurd amount of background tasks.
