    Screen Low, Power Saving Mode on, Switching Bck & Forth to 3 games on 100%, then an hour later... 57%

    This does not sound right or feel right.... and shouldn't be right... not with this beast in my hand....

    My battery been draining a lot lately and I've been doing my battery saving homework, the drainage is still constant.... any ideas

    Turn off GPS. That's a battery hog that doesn't need to be on unless you use maps or the app requires it (like my banking app requires it on for certain functions to work).

    Also I have heard chrome browser and google now launcher will deplete battery or get stuck and use battery. Maybe post your usage screen and someone can help you figure out what is going on.

    I can't think of any programs that require as much power as a game, especially if your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with 3 GB RAM is running all of them at the same time, allowing you to switch between them when you want.

    I will respectfully disagree that running 3 games is light usage, especially as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 defaults to the highest graphic settings on alot of games.

    The power saving mode has limited effect in this case, similar to running fuel economy mode in a car but still travelling routes with high gradients & using 1st gear everywhere.
