UPDATE: I turned off the WiFi and it has made a heck of a difference in Battery life for sure. I was trying to do an end around on Verizon and thought I could massage through WiFi and not have to worry about the limit & resulting charges when I exceeded it. That seem not to be the case so now I have unlimited on that as well as calls.

1) Check you applications, it drains a lot of your battery
2) Check if the bluetooth/wifi/mobile data connection is off when not in used
3) The brightness of your phone can also be a factor
4) Turn off location services
5) Social media notifications
6) Put your phone in sleep mode
But if it so happen that none of these works, we might conclude that it is the battery is already defective..
** You might also buy a battery life extender if you wish too.

Hi and welcome to the forums. I can't speak specifically to the smart phone, but I just bought a back up battery for a laptop I bought in Dec. The back up battery actually seems to do better than the battery that came installed for some reason, although they are both 6 cell.
