Default Galaxy S3 battery usage

Is theres an app to see exactly how much battery is consumed in actual time. Im asking because I put my phone and girfriend S3 on energy save mode with the same battery percent and settings and mine was using more battery. Does Go launcher and Go locker use more battery? any ideas?

every phone is different since every phone has different apps which makes comparisons tricky.

there is no real way to judge exactly what sort of battery life to expect.

Get Power Tutor or Better Battery Stats from market and run it. It has an Application View showing how much each application would be using up.

There's a built in one, but not as comprehensive in Menu>Settings>Battery

There are a lot of factors in power consumption. Monitoring the power that individual apps and services use is a start, but you should also look at environment and patterns of use. For example if you and your GF both have three email accounts but hers is primarily gmail that pushes new messages to your phone, but yours is a POP3 account that you poll every 5 or 10 minutes, even though you have the same apps running you will use more power. If you normally carry your phone in your pocket and your GF carries hers in her purse, the temperature difference alone can effect the battery discharge. Of course, these will be minor, but put a few together and one phone will look like a miser while the other is a hog.
