Hi, I'm brand new to this site. I'm looking for help fixing my galaxy s 3 battery life. It is running android 4.3. The GPS problem that others have experienced I am not experiencing. I'm not rooted. Everything is stock. I have a few apps disabled such as Google plus etc. I'm just looking to find a cause and hopefully a fix to my problem. I'm losing 1 to 3 percent an hour while idle. While in use I could drop 6 to 10 percent an hour. I am a moderate user. I mostly use facebook, music apps and web browsing. I also have sync turned off for facebook and Google.

Download wakelock detector from the market and run it. Also go into settings -> account and tab on location, make sure location reporting is turn off.

Ok I turned location services off. Here is a screenshot of wakelock what am I looking for? I also uninstalled the facebook app because I read that's a battery killer

Also I don't know if this will help but here are some screen shots from a better battery stats app

I'm stock, because. I don't know how to root, and the 4.3 is a massive disappoint to me - the battery drain is extraordinarily high. 3 hours of light use drained 50% juice.

On the VZ forums, people are livid.

Heavy drains are from Google service stuff. Go into settings -> account-> location. tab on location and make sure "location report" turn off. If you have multiple account make sure you turn them all off. Then install wakelock detector from the market and see what else is draining your battery. Verizon stock is not bad on battery,
