Default Note 3 Media battery usage

Hi,

I've recently purchased the Samsung Note 3, overall great phone so far very quick big and shiny.
I've had some problems with the battery i've seen some weird applications using pretty much battery while i can't recall which app it is.

Battery after almost 13 hours:

I tried disabling so much features but still can't seem to fix it.

PS:
Not using any music on my phone, the only thing i do is accepting photos on Whatsapp and making some.
I've placed a SD card before in this device but removed it because i've read something about battery draining sd cards.

I had the same problem with all mj5 roms I tried to some degree or another. The only thing that made it better was xnote v.7. The media drain is non existent for me on xnote.

Even though i removed the SD card the Media drain remained.
I wen't back to factory reset and didn't had the media drain anymore.

After the reset i also didn't placed my 5000 photo's back on the phone so this could be the issue also.

I never really figured it out. It didn't resolve when I changed SD Cards, however I did put back a lot of my stuff. My wife's note 3 doesn't have the same problem on any rom I put on her phone. The only difference I can tell is I still have MI9 as the base with the corresponding modem, while she is MJ5. That is my current theory as to what causes it, but I don't want to upgrade mine to MJ5.

Anyway, Xnote solves the problem, even if I prefer other roms a little bit more. My battery doesn't drop seemingly at all unless I am actually using the phone.
