    Fully charge the battery (like overnight). Use the phone until it tells you to charge it. Do that 2 more times. Then fully charge iit and see how it acts. If it's still draining the battery in a few hours, have it replaced.

    The first day or two that you have the phone, battery performance is not good. Especially if you are coming from a previous Android device and you selected "update apps from google account." You basically gave your google account permission to sit there and download a whole bunch of stuff in the background for the first few days. If you didn't take the time to set up all of your accounts and how they interact with background updates, there is a good chance one or more of your apps are constantly waking up to check for updates, new messages, etc.

    In other words, there are a lot of possibilities before you can say "it is the phone."

    Like Almeuit said, we need to see your battery stats to know more. Look up the countless other battery stat threads in this forum and you'll see what screen shots we need to help you.

    Show us your screen on time as well as the battery graph so we see how often the phone is awake. It could be a rogue app

    We would need more detail - drain doing what? Screen off? If so take a look at wake locks. If screen on, what apps are being used, data location services, screen brightness.

    Apps like gsam, battery monitor widget and wake lock detector can help.

    I had the same problem with my battery draining fast I simply turned off the location services (GPS). Maybe taking it off high accuracy may work as well, anyway this made a huge difference in my battery life. The question that I still have is weather the draining is due to the Location service it self or weather there is an overzealous app that is causing the drain on the service. Regardless only turn it on when needed you will be much happier.
