I guess my first question would be, what apps are you using right now? Next is which of those apps do you absolutely need to be using?

Personally I pull mine from my charger every workday morning at 5:30am, and have at least 50% battery life when I plug it in at 10pm.

Is your Internet on all day?

I guess you're asking me, and the the answer is yes... LTE, with the help of WiFi at home and at work. This also includes going to the gym and playing music for an hours or so, plus some games late in the evening.

Now are you going to answer my questions above?

I use instagram and Facebook primarily. A little bit of Scorecenter. In addition, I seem to be using my data plan pretty rapidly. What do you recommend? I am frustrated

Hyperion extended battery and Seido extended battery case (fits over the Hyperion). I get more than a day and a half with moderate to heavy use.

All of those are definitely going to use data... anything with a lot of images will probably use up more data than others. You can always go under Settings > Connections tab > Data usage and scroll down through the list to see what is using up your data. You can also go under Settings > More tab > Battery to see what is using up your battery.

Do you have any access to Wifi anywhere? I'd definitely suggest you find some and use it when you can. If not, you are going to burn up your data fairly quickly. Wifi will also save your battery even if you are in a good LTE area.
