    There is something wrong. I have the Note 3 and I am getting way better battery life.

    You do need to condition batteries. You should charge them full and use to empty whenever possible.
    At least once a month. I charge mine full and leave it on charger for about an hour after it says its full.
    Then I used the phone until it is between 0 and 8% and charge back full again plus that extra hour.

    I run my screen at 90% brightness, no auto bright, have 8 email accts and have Everything turned on and I am logged into like 20 things on the phone.
    facebook, G+, one drive, google drive, AT&T photo back up, AT&T bill pay app, visual vm, samsung hub and more.

    With modern battery technology this is not necessary. It's also not going to hurt anything, though.

    As said, this is not correct at all. Don't drain battery.

    For the size of your battery it is reasonable. 3200MAh and a 5.7" screen. I have a Tab 3 7.0 LTE (same chips as a Mega) with a 4000MAh battery, and the worst case screen time is about six hours. In deference to the Snapdragon 800 I would say 5-6 hours of web or over 4 hours of games would be pretty nice.

    I have seen the G Flex having 3600MAh battery and much higher endurance than a Note 3 in GFXbench, but it only has a 720p flexible plastic OLED screen. And an inferior camera, easily. So I think you're doing well compared to say Nexus 5 battery life.

    I have noticed that turning off Google location service improves the battery life significantly.

    Yes, I do. I've seen 8+ hours of screen time on that 5.7 inch, 1080p screen

    I can absolutely believe this. It just depends largely on what the screen is displaying and what you're doing with the phone - sucking down netflix for example is likely to eat battery more quickly than email, calendars, and texting.

    I have been nothing but impressed with the battery life on my Note 3 - I generally unplug at 7:30 AM and am still in the 30-40 range around 11:30 when I'm about ready to plug back in - some days more, some less. It really depends on what I'm doing on a given day.

    Also a factor - repeated signal switching. If you're phone is constantly searching for an LTE connection and/or switching into and out of one, that can chew up your battery.

    So the OP needs to evaluate his/her activities and see if the battery usage seems high or not. It could be a bad battery, or it could be related to usage profile.
