So, you got this octa core, GT-i9500, 3G phone yesterday and have rooted it and flashed a custm, Omega, ROM. Have you re-calibrated your battery after all this activity?

Might be wrong but I think i've found the suspect. The preinstalled dropbox app, I thought I was having an issue with my internet as it was slowed to a crawl, I then caught on as soon as I turned wifi on on my phone the internet at home came to a crawl, and looking at my stats the phone was never sleeping, something was running constantly. I turned everything of in turn that was set to sync, eventually I can to dropbox, turned it of and low and behold my home internet speed improved, I let the phone sit for 20 mins and went back and looked at the stats and the phone went to sleep so I think it was this dropbox app.

Now I've been using dropbox for years, autoupload enabled with no problems, this seems to be a different version of the standard dropbox app specifically for Samsung with the 50gb free storage and what it was doing in the background I do not know as I had nothing to upload but it was doing something and had been since I got the phone last night.

So phones back on the charger again (3rd charge today) and we'll see what happens when charged.

So just got 15 hours out of that last charge with fairly heavy usage, does that sound about right?

It must of been either Google+ or dropbox eating the battery as have had no issues since after disabling them,
