    Are you watching HD or SD video? Makes a difference GPU and data usage both of which can add to battery drain.

    What do you have your screen brightness set at? Turn off auto brightness and set it at 30-40%. This will save quite a bit in battery life.

    Have you tried a factory reset? Maybe you have an arrant app sticking causing drain.

    Sounds like a rogue app. After doing the factory reset, did you install all of the same apps again? Your problem is likely an app that you recently installed that is not very battery friendly (always read reviews before installing new apps). You might want to try uninstalling a few of your most recently added apps to see if you can identify the culprit.

    For what it's worth, mine gets about the same battery life when I watch YouTube. I guess I just don't watch YouTube that much to notice. I certainly don't have battery issues that I notice though. Before I rooted and went with a custom ROM, my battery life sucked to be honest. Now I can use it all day without worrying about charging it. I can easily go 16+ hours, whereas before I had to make sure and charge it ~8 hours. That's without every touching the Power Saver setting. However, it certainly depends on what you're doing with your phone because you can easily drain your battery in under 4 hours depending on what you're doing. There's good apps for battery savings that can be used - however your issue is something you're seeing right while using YouTube. All I can offer is that your results are the same as mine, while using the app. Other than that, my battery life lasts quite a long time with A/V, Weather apps, multiple email accounts, Live wallpaper, no power save, auto-brightness, etc. Don't know what others are experiencing but it's always possible that it's the app.

    I use whatsapp constantly. Not sure what you are getting for battery life. Each device is going to behave differently based on what you have running, screen brightness, now much you are sitting there staring at it, and so on. I can burn through my battery if I'm constantly using it and not giving it a change to just stay off for awhile. Else, I'm easily getting the stats attached.

    1% every 5 mins is normal.... It wouldn't be normal if the screen was off but once it on.. Battery we start to plummet.

    Do you guys happen to have the battery percentage jump instantly? I was playing this game when the phone notified me saying it was down to 15% and then 2 minutes later, it notified me it's down to 5% and then 1% in less than a minute. Is this normal, or should I be worried...?

    I have 4.3 and seeing Android system has been status quo. My battery life us just fine, even though visually it looks scary if you look at the power stats. Plenty of threads on this subject.
