Plug Should I exchange this note 3 for this pathetic battery life?

Wifi, sync, gps are all off for most of the time. Power saving mode is always on.
I am only getting 2.5 hours of screen on time. Just Web browsing, no games.
Android OS is taking 46% of the battery, which had been the case for a week now. I factory reset the phone 3 times already not it didn't change anything.

I installed a battery monitor app few days ago, find out that under android os, something called w1_bus_master is the main cause but I can't get any info about it.


Maybe the weak 3g signal keep draining the battery? But if I turn off the data at night and kill all the process and the battery only drop 3%.

Since you have a weak 3g signal I'm assuming you do not have 4g in your area. Have you tried putting the phone in cdma only mode? It's under the connections tab then more networks>mobile networks>network mode. Also force stop Google play services.
