    Hi Everyone! I am so glad I found this place!
    So, I just got this phone about a week ago and everybody else in my family has it as well but they don't have the same problem. I have to charge my phone every single night. I woke up at eleven today and but nine tonight it was down to 15% battery life. Somebody help me please!

    Hi. Welcome to the forums.
    A few counter questions:
    How long is everyone else going on a charge?
    Are you all on the same network?
    Are you all running the same apps?

    I have one app that I downloaded and the rest are system apps.
    My dad has a battery life of: 2 days 11 hours
    My mom has a battery life of: 16 Hours

    Ok.
    Several things to consider (Thank you for posting battery stats BTW). People use their phones differently.
    I am guessing your dad probably turns off the cell radios, or doesn't turn the device on much at all. Your mom is a heavier user, checking more occasionally than your dad.

    You I am guessing use the phone a great deal. Your screen time is over 3 hours; not bad. You are getting roughly the same amount of use as me and I know I am a moderate to heavy user.

    Now, it does take a few days for the phone to get into the swing of things, so you may start to see an increase in battery life.
    Something else to look over is this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ving-tips.html

    Now, I am assuming that you had a few updates? If so also try this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...2-s3-tab2.html
    Follow the directions and clear cache. Why are you doing this? Cache from old data can get in the way of new updates and cause the OS (Android) to take longer to do things that it would normally take. Sure we are talking a few seconds, but that is still energy.

    Give those a try, and see what happens in the next few days even.

    Welcome to Android Central, and I don't think I have anything else to add, since Golfdriver97 covered it all (as usual).
