Default Voice calls uses a lot of battery

My phone is SM-G900H (Exynos Variant)
Today I made a 1hour call over Bluetooth headset and I noticed that this took more battery than the whole things including the screen during the day.
Why is voice call could even possibly eat up battery like that?

3 hour 22 min screen on time at 43% battery - you are getting way better battery life many users. Doesn't seem to be any battery issues with your phone.

The only battery related disadvantage of the G900H, the modem seems to use more power compared to the Qualcomm version.

As the above post mentioned, your battery life is still good, mostly thanks to the A7 cores that use less power in the lighter tasks.
