    You could try going back to stock, unrooting and start over. Only bad thing about that is backing up all your stuff on SD card. Are you undervolting or running any other tweaks?

    Yesterday when I got it I fully charged it and messed around with it on 4g and WiFi. I had 3 hours of screen time. I strteamed music in the car as well. This was in a 6 hour period and my battery was 40%. Way better than my nexus. I have my battery on power saver and my brighness is auto

    The s3 has great battery life. It also has a bigger battery because it is a bigger phone.

    As for your Nexus, have you tried another battery? The only way I see your battery losing life while plugged in is through USB. If you're losing while on the wall charger then something is wrong with your battery. Also when on FB and you lose like 10% when on for 3min what are your brightness settings and are you on 4g? Do you happen to have alot of photos on your page or newsfeed?Also, I recall from a few months ago you were overclocked, are you still? Things like these really add up to draining your battery in a short amount of time, though 10% in 3min seems like a battery defect as I don't even lose that much that quickly playing an HD video on YouTube on full brightness.

    My brightness is on low to automatic ,,, and I'm under clocked, around 730mhz, I run 4G only when I'm plugged into a wall charger and watching YouTube. Otherwise its on 3G or I even have data off most of the time. I usually get on Facebook to set a status scroll through news feeds real quick then I'm off of it,

    Sounds like you have a battery issue to me then. My Nexus battery is the same one I've had since launch and it doesn't drain anywhere near as fast as yours does even on 4g with about 50% screen brightness.

    Yeah probably, if I turn everything off and just play music. It will die in like a hour and a half. So I'm probably going to have to get a new battery, dreading to because its a lot to spend and if it don't work

    If it drains that quickly without any of the radios on then I would definitely try a new battery.

    Batteries are fairly cheap, around the $13-$16 range depending where you look, last I saw at least. Take a look at Amazon, they sell Samsung batteries.

    Do you live in an area with poor reception? Bad signal is one of the biggest battery killers.

    Try not undervolting, perhaps your device doesn't like that. Undervolting saves battery theoretically but not all processors can handle it properly, and as such can actually drain battery more.
