    Factory reset usually fixes the problem. It did for me.

    Try a battery monitor such as GSam. On my note 3 it identified 1 app Taptu as the problem. My phone was physically warm in my pocket, my battery would be drained in about 4 hours. The APP worked fine on JellyBean. I changed the refresh settings within the APP, it took care of my battery drain issue.

    Thanks. I'm going to try the app first. A FDR is last resort.
