For about the past 3 weeks I have been experiencing pretty extreme battery drain on my Galaxy S3 usually going down 1% every 60 seconds to a 1:30 when using it only giving the battery about a few hour use, I have done a factory reset and bought a new battery as well as disable google applications that have been known to drain the battery as well as location services. I have downloaded advance task killer and battery drain analyzer and still can't figure out the problem. Anyone have any ideas? Will include pictures

Yeah everything looks fine, my percentage (heavy user) goes down about one every 4 minutes and I have brightness all the way up. Then again, I'm not stock. Still, getting 14 hours out of a battery is pretty good. If you use the phone a lot with the screen on, it's gonna drain a lot faster. That's just the way it works.

One thing I am noticing is the color of your mobile network signal.. While you did maintain signal, it was tan for most of the displayed day.. If you live in a fringe area, or if they are doing work on a tower in your area, this will be the norm.. The best scenario would be to have a solid green line in that area, but you can only do so much.. I agree 14 hours is excellent, by power of extrapolation, with you being down to 44%, you would theoretically be able to get about 27 hours on one charge, if this use is typical..
