There are (almost) always things you can do to save battery, but the usage you're seeing isn't normal. Go to Settings/More/Battery to see what programs are sucking up all the power. If it's some stray program or widget, you'll know.

The one setting you should verify though is screen auto-brightness. The large screen will use a lot of power, and the brighter it is the more power it will use.
