Hi, you are correct that is not how the phone should be.
I keep many settings off, not for battery but because I like to have things at my control. the phone does not try to connect to google or anyone else unless Im actively doing so
The screen size alone is a battery hog but with the larger battery in that phone it should NOT be draining that fast. I have 2 phones here right now, one is the S3 with almost the same size screen and one is the Nexus 4 again with almost the same size screen and the battery lasts 18+ hours with 40% or more left.
So I would say take it to the store have them check if the phone or battery are defective. See if you can find a guy that knows how to check/change settings that are constantly causing the phone to "wakeup" once those checks are done/fixed your phone should work very well and you dont have to have everything turned off.
