In KitKat Google changed how location services works which seems to cause a lot of the battery drain issues. If you have Wi-Fi turned off during sleep, apps are likely trying to get your location using GPS which will easily drain your battery. It seems like even with Location Services is turned off that some apps can still continue to try and request location. Personally I like using the location services that many apps use in Android so completely disabling wasn't an option for me.

I've played around with it quite a bit myself and found these settings have helped me::
-Leaving Google Location Services on at High Accuracy has been better on my phone's battery life.
-Leave Wi-Fi always on if it's available. (Use something like Llama or Tasker to automatically turn Wi-Fi on and off.)
-Setup My Places in Locations that correspond to Wi-Fi, etc
-Try uninstalling/reinstalling updates to Google Search, Google Play Services and Google Play Store
-Go through your apps and uninstall anything you aren't using or is not from a reputable developer. A lot of apps seem to have keep awake and location permission enabled by default that don't need it. You won't see these apps in the battery screen because they hide behind tiny wake lock requests and Google Play Services.
-Reboot in recovery and clear your cache

Another tip for saving battery is to use LLama or Tasker to disable Account Syncs any time you are disconnect from a Wi-Fi network. This also helps save mobile data if you don't have a large data plan.

Good Luck and Cheers

Default Unrooted...

This really isn't a good idea with these batteries, as you can dramatically decrease the battery life overall. They weren't meant for things like this. Instead a better idea would be to root, and find a re-calibrater in the play store... just my opinion.

Those without root... well... get on the ball and root your device [/QUOTE]

I did say in my post that it would be better if this was rooted. But from what I understand people were not able to be rooted. I agree simply getting a battery calibration app is the best way to go (Requires Root). But if you are not able to obtain root this is the only current solution I know of. If someone has a better option please feel free to post it. I was just trying to offer what I knew.

I had given myself a few weeks to let this update settle in. I have absolutely nothing positive to say about it, unfortunately. I am getting less than 2 hours of screen on time on LTE (moderate use, social networking, no sync) and the phone battery quickly jumps to ~103-106+ Fahrenheit when I just reply a bit in a hangouts group chat. It gets so hot I cannot even touch the screen. It had gotten so severe that I ended up turning my phone off more often. That isn't even all of it. When replying to messages, the phone completely freezes for 20+ seconds and I can do nothing about it. It is becoming very frequent. I Odin'd back to NB1 twice and took the update again, and still it gives me awful battery life, unsustainable freezing, and overheating. I will mention, I use a 32 GB SD card avidly. Lots of photos and media on it (it's there for a reason, right? ). I really hope there is another update pushed to fix this.... Besides removing the SD card, any other fixes? (I have tried all the other ones mentioned in this, though did not see any positive results on my side)

-Samsung Galaxy S3 Marble White AT&T (SGH-I747) (CM11)

Nope I think its a defective sd card. Ive seen 2 s4#s have terribe freezing from a bad sd card. Why not just get a spare sd card for testing. Download the photos from old one to pc

Another thing that makes your phone hot I found is a Google Plus backup of photos automatically turn that off especially if not on wifi
