There can be many factors why battery life is that worse. Bad programmed apps, Wifi always on, screen time, call duration, running background processes and so on. Most times i switch my data connection off if i don't need it. I run my phone since 2 days and 8 hours and my battery is on 9% at the moment. As i see your wifi was always on. Try switching it off.

Screen on time is around 4 hours, I haven't called even for a second or used my data connection yet, but I keep wifi always on because I thought it causes lesser battery drain.

How can always wifi on cause lesser battery drain?
Don't know, sounds unlogical to me.

4 hours screen on? Phuu........did not try it but i guess it is normal if you have your screen 4 hours on.
What are you expecting? Switching everyting on and then have a two days battery life?

See yourself on your graph how battery got better when screen was off. Now switch off wifi and try again.

In my opinion i don't see any problem with your phone.
Maybe someone might correct me if someone feels that i am .....

I thought Wifi uses lesser battery than 3G and I expected 20 hours battery atleast.

I see your Wifi is working all the time. Are you aware of this?

In some JB Android version google implemented automatic Wifi networks scanning (probably for their purposes), even when Wifi switch swhows "disabled".
You can disable it, maybe it can save some battery: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2422689,00.asp

Install BetterBatteryStats and see if there's any wakelocks that are eating your battery at the moment.

Also, about your on screen time - what's the settings for brightness that you use? You might want to consider dropping the "auto" and go for a reasonable low level of brightness that fits your indoor or outdoor activities.

Your assumption of WiFi eating less batter than data connection is correct in most of the cases.

Anyway, if you have any doubts about this... an average NOTE3 user can't get to those 3h 30minutes with on screen time

Your battery is normal with so much screen on time.

It does look disappointing,i get a lot more than that but mine is rooted and greenified and set up how i like it.

Im currently on 1d 18h and have 39% left with 4 hour screen time and that's with a mixture of wifi and 3G.

i enable airplane mode overnight though which only uses 1% in 8 hours.
