Qualcomm's BatteryGuru app out of beta after update
Motorola decided to go after these power users by shoehorning a 3300mAh battery into the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD. And certainly the average battery inside your typical smartphone contains a larger capacity cell than what was in your phone just a year or two ago.
For those who still aren't happy with the battery life they are getting, last February silicon slinger Qualcomm released its BatteryGuru app in the Google Play Store. Now out of beta, the app adds to battery life by cutting off unnecessary connections, turning on Wi-Fi when possible. By learning how someone uses their smartphone, the app is designed to extend battery life while keeping the functions that are used daily. It takes 2 to 4 days for the app to learn how the phone is being used before the battery extending features kick in.
The Qualcomm Battery Guru is a free download from the Google Play Store, but there is one important caveat. Your phone must be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and even then, not every model is supported. A recent update exterminated some bugs and added support for a number of foreign languages.

I wonder why there is not much innovation in battery department. Pretty much all other fields evolving very fast.
its time for something new innovation on battery like self recharging battery or something like that. These law life battery really making me sick
i really hate to see "battery critically law" or "battery 15% please plug in your device"

there has been little to no innovation in batteries since the last 8 or so years. every now and then PA posts an article about some university or group of scientist stating to have made some advancement in battery technology but still can't seem to see it implemented in smartphones

I got a US GS3 non rooted screen at half bright and I used it and it drained my battery fast, all it did was turn on my power save mode and cycled when my apps would call out. Checked battery settings and DOWNLOAD was using over 70% (I.e. media and messenger apps) didn't do that before I installed it and all I got calling out is email and G+, give you an idea after power on from full charge and within an hour of non use I checked it at 72% battery, 3 hours later of non use it was at 49%??? I uninstalled it hoping I didn't damage something. Didn't work for me and I didn't let it finish the 3 day trial either, not worth it!!
Now that I uninstalled it and another hour later I checked battery settings again and DOWNLOAD is now back down to 18%. Weeird!

What you could try (a friend of mine did) is turn of the Google location service in Now and Maps. (you still be able to use maps)
They seemed to be the biggest battery drainers.
And install GreenPower (premium) from the playstore.
This helps me to save extra on my Note.
I got quite some apps running but my battery holds a whole day with intensive i-net and gmail usage.
