    Hi,
    I had battery drain issue with "Media" application. It was trying to download a pdf or something. I cancelled all downloads and my problem solved.

    Based on usage your battery will drain much faster. The rate of drain you report though is obviously much higher than it should be. Try removing the micro SD card as that has been known to be a possible read issue that leads to battery drain with the newest Jelly bean update.

    Before 4.1.2 I would unplug my phone from the charger at 100% and I could go 10-15 minutes and more with the phone idle and it would still be at 100%....

    Now, with the same scenario, the phone goes down to 98-99% within 5 minutes of just 'on' idle time.....

    Pisses me off!

    How quickly the battery drops when you first take it off the charger depends more on where the phone is in the battery maintenance cycle than anything else. See

    The first 10 - 15 minutes just isn't a meaningful gauge of battery usage. If it drops to 50 or 60% noticeably faster, that's something that might be an issue, and might be curable, but the first 2 percentage points are pretty meaningless. Some mornings I pull my phone off the charger and am still at 97-98% when I get to work 45 minutes later. Other days I drop that much by the time I get out of my driveway.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
