    Default Battery life...good or bad?

    Could you guys look to see if something looks off? Did a factory reset after 4.1.1. On Sprint. Thanks in advance!
    Seems like Android System is burning my battery quicker than it should? Or am I crazy?

    Nothing looks unusual to me - your were down to ~40% battery remaining, after 6 1/2 hours of use in which the screen was on over half the time. I don't know what your brightness setting was but that seems about what I'd normally expect with the screen on for that long.

    Definitely could be better... Get this app called Juice Defender, it really helps save battery a LOT

    If u don't mind the bulk, get an extended battery which does amazing

    Screen was at half brightness. When I hit the refresh at the top right on battery stats it says "surfaceflinger". On my wifes s3 it says something else. Is surfaceflinger doing something crazy? Or am I just paranoid?

    Overall, nothing looks out of place to me. It's usually helpful to post the stats from the display section with any battery troubleshooting too, but I don't think it's necessary in this case. Often the android system will be a high percentage if most of the time you are just scrolling through menu's settings, ect. My phone usually does have much better battery life than that, but recently when I updated to Jelly Bean on this thing, mine's been having a little worse battery life too. I think for now your phone looks fine, let it go a few days and if you still have issues with it, post again on here, but nothing is standing out for now. Just as a comparison, on days when I don't use my phone much at all (A few texts throughout the day, maybe checking some news articles for a few minutes throughout the day, and less than an hour of talk time) I can end a 16-hour day with 75-80 percent battery left. That is with LIGHT use, often I do use it more than that too.

    Thanks for chiming in guys. Rhings are looking better today it seems. Ive been on wifi so of course it would. I realized that I was also in a spotty lte location so this may have contributed. Should I just switch to cdma only when I dont need 4g or does it matter? Thanks again!
