    I'd like to post a screenshot but i don't see the option to do so, so I'll just post it as I see it.

    5h 12mins 20s on battery

    Android OS 41%
    Android System 12%
    Google Play services 10%
    Screen 5% (18mins screen on time)

    I am currently at 60% after taking my phone off charger at 100% 5hours ago. What is going on? I have email to sync every 4hours so I know that can't be it. What can be causing such a massive drain? I don't use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, so Im completely lost as to why my battery is draining so rapidly.

    60% battery left after 5 hours of use is not that bad. you may have a rogue app or setting though. uninstall suspect apps.

    It's not 5 hours of use though, Its just been 5 hours off the charger. The screen has only been on for 20minutes and I've lost 40%.

    I've charged it back up to 100% and waited a few hours and these are the results.

    Unfortunately the drain you are experiencing is normal for a note 3 since android 4.4.2 came out. I've tried a lot of different Roms & Kernels and every time I think i've made the batter life better it goes back to being terrible again within a couple of days, I even bought a new battery from samsung but that made no difference at all. The Note 3 is the best phone i've owned but i'm on the verge of jumping to a different android manufacturer as I can't see the point of owning a phone I have to constantly keep charging just to get me through a normal working day

    if battery life bothers you alot, do try to turn off sync, and turn off data when not in use. (I can get 6-9hr sot with this).

    There is no question Android is using massive amount of battery, as it is being tasked by google to do more and more things even when you are not looking at it. Jumping to a different phone won't really solve the problem.
