Default Excessive battery drain or just heavy usage?

Mainly what the title says, my galaxy s3 has been used quite heavily over the past 2 weeks, just after flashing the last 4.1.2 update, xxemg4. With wifi on(browsing Internet, etc) it won't last more than 11 hours more or less... I am pretty sure that when I had xxemc2 (the one that was pre installed on the phone) Battery life was better... Any ideas? Or am I using it too heavily?

Phone: Nokia C5-03(lagged so much, R.I.P)> Sony Xperia Sola Running Gingerbread>Samsung Galaxy SIII (end of 2013)

Xperia Sola development will be stopped after upgrading to ICS they said... Sola is basically a device with a slowly dying developping community they said... Developpers managed to port Jellybean from another device and they did it perfectly, they never said...

Screen on time is a better indicator of battery life if you are a heavy user, anything over 5hrs is good.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.
