Ridiculous battery drainage on galaxy s3
Hey android central, I recently just bought a new galaxy s3 and its been giving me a lot of battery issues. For the first maybe two weeks or so the phone seemed to operate perfectly normally but lately has been draining really fast. For example, I left it on my desk last night while it was at 95% and when I woke up in the morning it was at 2%... I charged it after and when it hit 100 again I unplugged it and after about half an hour of it remaining completely idle, it dropped down to 88%. I tried uninstalling and shutting off a lot of apps but it seems like nothings working and the battery is still dropping quickly. Does anybody know what could be wrong?
Here's a screenshot, but the picture was taken while it was being charged:

Re: Ridiculous battery drainage on galaxy s3
There are three screenshots that you need to post from Settings -> Battery if we're going to have a chance of helping you:Be sure you start with a fully charged device and there are no intermediate charge cycles (like in my data - this would be useless to try to figure out).
Without seeing your data I'd have to guess that your phone was busy searching for a signal, or switching between LTE and 3G or something similar - nothing will kill a battery quicker than a lousy/nonexistent signal.
