    About a week or two ago my phone's batter life has gotten really crappy. Resetting the phone didn't fix it and I've tried a variety of batteries. Anyone else having this problem? Any fixes?

    Are you rooted?
    And what kind of task killers do you have?

    I'm on stock rooted rom 4.1, with only greenify as a "task killer." I know the battery life got worse with 4.1, but it was better a couple of weeks ago.

    Have you gotten rid of/frozen your bloatware and unused stock apps?

    I did that and I really have no complaints with battery life, with moderate use I only have to charge overnight.

    I noticed the same.
    According to battery usage, it is/was google services.
    What seemed to fix it for me was to uninstall all map updates and then disable maps all together.

    I'm sure there is or will be a better solution, but for me, this phone is one step from being thrown out anyhow (screen freezes since JB).

    I rarely use maps, but I use navigation a lot. I just updated my phone a few days ago, and find myself recharging TWICE a day! what. the. froop..?

    There gotta be an easy-peasy one-step root, but I'm sure the manufacturers made sure their phones will be too complicated to work with. <insert sarcasm>
