    G'day Mate,

    I used to have the exact same problem as you. I did a bit of research and found an app called Juicedefender. It has added a heap of battery life. All it does is turn of data when your not using it (turns back on every half hour to check notifications etc) and all the usual battery saving tricks.
    Give it a try:

    There is also paid versions but I wouldn't bother. If this one doesn't work try another battery saving app from the multitude of battery saver apps on the Play store.

    How old is your battery? Batteries will degrade over time. I just bought a new battery for my S3 and I got a lot more screen on time. Other than that I use greenify. I also use tasker to turn off wifi when I sleep and let my phone sync only every 30min.
    Some apps also drain a lot of battery like the facebook apps so I use the browser for facebook.
