    Mine uses much less than 1% per hour on standby (screen off, in Airplane Mode, wifi off), but that's probably not typical usage or battery drain. I'm at 82% battery right now with 1 day, 6 hours, and 37 minutes on battery, with 34 minutes screen time.

    Overnight I loose between 0.4-0.6% per hour with WiFi and everything else enabled. I'm running Echoe ROM with comadose mod.

    Yup. Running custom ROM. I find my battery life is far better when I can use root apps like greenify.

    I'm sure there's something we can find to help. First thing download battery stats plus that will help you find what apps are chewing up your battery.

    I don't think it would be a lot more in a strong signal area, but I have a very weak signal at home, so I keep it on Airplane Mode.

    OK if you just want a app to save battery you can't beat juice defender. If its still bad maybe root? It's very easy to get back to stock if you ever need to.

    Not with the new bootloader with Samsung Knox, unfortunately.

    I use Battery Doctor. Juice Defender's Pro version has not been updated since 2011. You'll see reviews littered with bug reports.

    I lose about 2% per hour while idle. That's with WiFi, LTE and GPS on, Bluetooth and NFC off, all Google Now cards active, syncing Gmail every 15 minutes and most everything else every hour, Tasker running and no battery saving apps running.

    No. It controls syncing by your various apps. App syncing can be a major battery drain.

    Nope. I use Nova as a launcher but I'm running the Verizon version of 4.3 but have yet to do a factory reset since the update. It's about the same as what I've seen in the past, though.

    I should mention that I also do not have Facebook installed. I look at it through the web interface in Chrome.

    I do have a Tasker profile that keeps count of how many times my location is found though Google's Fuse Location API. It's about once every 72 seconds. There have been times in the past where it was closer to once every 45 seconds and my battery life was noticeably worse but I didn't do anything special to change it. It seems to happen more often right after clearing Maps data or re installing some Google services (my guess is that Google Now is "learning" my routine in that time) and it was definitely worse after I installed Google Wallet. Other than using Tasker and Synker to control when my apps sync rather than using auto sync I haven't done anything special. I used Battery Guru for a while but it went rogue once and drained my battery and didn't seem to make a difference when it was installed so I gave up on it.

    You will see on the middle right side when the developer last updated the app. The main app was done last January 2012. The keys to unlocking Ultimate and Plus last 2011.

    So how do you update an app that was last updated during those times? There have been tons of Android devices released after those timeframes. Including the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S4. The developer has abandoned development of the app.
