    Firstly, Welcome to Android Central!

    Secondly, you may not be doing anything wrong, you may just have a lemon, which is a possibility.

    I'll second what Haalcyon said: post a screenshot of your battery stats.

    That is not normal. The battery life in my G2 is amazing. You might have a bad unit.

    The first question I'd have is has it always been this way? If not I'd keep a factory reset queued up and ready to execute unless you identify the culprit and before I returned the device.

    Is there anyway to do a cache wipe in recovery?

    You either have a rogue app or a defective device. Try a factory reset and run it without any additional apps for a while and see how the battery does. If it is good then you know it was an app. If it continues to drain you know you have a bad unit.

    Its not uncommon for a Note 3 to have <=400mb of free RAM, especially if several widgies are open.

    I didn't explain myself exactly. It is not common for any New devices battery life to perform in such a way as the op states his is doing. So it is a obvious defective device, I'm saying.

    The phone itself is the best. . . Better than note 2, which is a good phone

    If your battery is really doing that then simply return it for a new device, I have a Note 2 also.
