    Over the past few weeks my battery life on my AT&T note 3 has gotten awful. It used to last me all day and I couldn't kill it if I tried. The last few weeks I noticed it was dying in the evenings and in the last two days I've had to recharge it by 3pm.

    I haven't installed any new apps or changed any settings.. below are some screenshots. Any ideas what I can do??

    Disable sview air gesture and stuff.
    Try a hard reset.

    An app like Better Battery Stats, GSM or Wakelock detector might provide some insight as to what is keeping your phone awake. I too am having similar issues with my Note, and something is keeping it awake. Seemed to happen without warning - I was getting excellent all day battery life one day, and the next I had to recharge around 4pm.

    Are you rebooting your phone daily? If not, do so. Boot it in the morning (or whenever you finish charging it) before you take it off the charger. This goes a long ways towards improving battery life.

    I've been having very sharp drops in my battery charged as well. I have an older droid Razr Maxx, which was supposed to have a long lasting 3100 milliamp battery.

    Seems to be the secret of long battery life. Barely got 8hrs and since the reboot I am at 1d4hrs with 32% battery left.

    I long ago got into the habit of turning the phone off when charging --- maybe this is why I've never experienced abnormal battery drainage, ever!
