Yeah, those friends xD. On s3 you can play for about 3-4 hours depending on game. You must take care of screen on time. Look at it on yours friend phone Thats the real time of using your smartphone. Max screen on time that i had was about 5.5h but I was only reading a book. And the 3g browsing eats your battery like a boss I discharged my phone in 2h so thats normal.
Peace

Use BetterBatteryStats to have full control over it. Also, I don't know what apps you have running, but try to use Greenify.


You're running a custom rom, so the culprit can be the kernel too. Use an untouched stock kernel if you want or heavily tweak the custom one you're using.


We can't tell you more than this, because we don't know what you have installed, what you have running and how do you use it.

check out BetterBatteryStats, as already mentioned for the real battery killers.
put down the brightness to a low level
turn off your mobile internet in moments you dont really need it (i.e. during sports). just like you turn off wifi, when you leave your house

Is your phone 2 years old?
Buy a new battery.

Looks like your battery needs to be recalibrated.
Completely drained your battery & charge it for 8 hours without stopping during the night.
It happened to me too a few weeks ago when I bought a new battery.

Use BBS, greenify & tweaks your kernel settings will definitely help too.

Good luck

Replace your battery
Either get another Samsung battery - or go big and get ZeroLemon 7000mAh - worth every penny! and you get used to the size & weight pretty fast.
