    Is there any point in resetting to factory settings? Have you tried to see if it makes a difference?

    Yeah I've done that a few times and tried diff roms. Im also rooted and have removed a lot of bloatware and also made mant tweaks and eliminmated all the top wakelocks.

    Currently running the latest 4.1.2 firmware.

    Not too sure why it drains like this. Perhaps its because my signal isnt great and usually around the 85-90 dBm mark..

    Am home now and this is where the battery is at now. Just some basic usage this afternoon.

    Any comments on the battery's performance?

    Hmmm

    To be honest these times are not great. Especially since you're not even using an LTE Note II. Like I said, I used to get close to 10 hours screen on time and a day out of it until the 4.1.2 update. And this was on LT, although I don't have a 4G sim.

    I'm hoping the 4.2.2 update will bring back the battery life most people were experiencing on 4.1.1. Have you checked for wakelocks with betterbatterystats?

    How do I go back to 4.1.1? Can I do a hard reset?

    You need to be rooted and flash a 4.1.1 rom. I wouldn't advise it tho given the SDS vulnerabilities and it's also missing features such as text reflow in the browser.

    I think I've found the culprit. I left phone on with wifi on overnight and Facebook is trying to do something.

    I had notifications on in the app but they never work, as in I never get any notifications in the status bar.

    So now I've turned them off and battery seems to drain slower when idle.

    Well I am with t mobile lol -_- I live in San Diego too where I should be getting good signal strength. Is my battery effective? Or is it from the jelly bean update? My phone is running on 4.1.1.
    Have you tried enabling t-mobile's native wifi-calling feature? As long as you're around wifi, your phone will connect through that to do everything (i.e. call, text, send/receive data, etc.) It's a godsend if you live in a reception black hole like I do. I'm hooked up to wifi all day at work and whenever I'm at home, so even though I get crappy service, I still get 1.5-2 days of battery life per charge.

    I-disabled WCDMA in Mobile Network section and charging my phone before it reaches 10%. Charging while the phone is off is one of the best way to charge, for me. But it is up to you. Any comments about its performance? No battery savers using and any anti virus. Just floating touch.

    there is no point in using juice defender and other battery save apps. they disable connectivity but the apps because they cant connect create overhead tthat negates the effect to turning it off. try following the steps given in this guide

    Wifi drains my standby battery like there's no tomorrow. No such problem on my Nexus 4 (or any HTC One S).

    I sincerely hope 4.3 sorts this problem out.
