    All I know is I'm using it the exact same way and it's draining twice as fast. Will probably try a FDR tomorrow. The way I see it, I shouldn't have to use battery saver unless I need to.

    Edit: oh and I have tried it in the past, and after 50% the cpu really slows down during games.

    Yea but Jelly Bean changes the whole pic. I would try the battery saver before a FDR, you got nothing to lose, and you may be surprised..

    I have noticed that the phone has more wake locks now after the jelly bean update, and google maps is using a lot of the battery while sleeping. I have google now enabled, so maybe that is the cause for the additional wake locks. Overall, I would say the battery life is slightly less than it was on ICS.

    I'm not doubting it saves battery, but the fact is I never had to use it. Ever. Because battery life was great. So I shouldn't have to use something I know I shouldn't have to use, especially when the time where I really DO need to conserve battery comes up. Then I'm SOL. I'll definitely be resetting after I back up.

    When you say 3 to 4 days standby.... is your phone just sitting there because before this update I would get from 6 am to midnight, which works for me, but I really text mostly and check emails with maybe 1 half hour call a day.

    I rarely have to charge my phone, honestly. I use it on a daily basis, but not heavy use. With heavy use Im down to about 74% the next morning. And this has to be the most incredibly fastest charging phone ever.. If I'm at 74%, if I plug it in, will be at 100% in less then 10 mins.

    And when I say standby, I don't mean not using it. I mean I can simply put it down and use it when I need to without having to plug it in.

    That's how mine was on ICS. Now I too have crazy battery drain. I might be going back to ICS.

    After the update, I noticed Google Maps was sucking a ton of juice, even though I wasn't using it. I turned off all of the location services and history options in Maps, and I think that solved it. I also turned off Google Now, which I suppose could have been the culprit as well since it relies heavily on location based information. Either way, the useless 20% drain I was experiencing is solved.
