Default Battery life terrible after 4.3

Hi guys,

Ihad posted earlier after taking the 4.3 update that my phone started to behave irregularly.
So, on the advice presented, i did a factory reset.
Phone behaves just fine but the horrible battery life still persists.
My battery level drops 40% in 5 hours. On 4.1.2, i could go 8 hours and still have 70% battery.

Is there something in 4.3 that drains the battery faster?

i am on stock, unrooted.
Should i reflash knox free/lorjay's rom to see if that brings my battery life back to what it used to be?

Any and all replies are much appreciated.

I get about 15-17 hours on 4.3 I just think it how much you use your phone.

I have noticed the same - 4.3 is a battery drain. the newest stuff never really works right on older phones, kinda wish i could go back.

I agree. My phone drains like crazy now and it takes like 5 hours to charge from 50 to 100%. I don't know what 4.3 did but I want my 4.1.2 back. My phone lasted 17 to 21 hours with the same use I do now. I now get about 10.
