Note 3 comes with bloatware such as S-memo, S-planner, S-Cloud, Widget and they keep running on the background which drain a huge battery life. So if you are not using these bloatware disable them by heading to Settings > Apps Manager.
Turn the unnecessary gestures off
Galaxy Note is packed with a set a gesture based features which keep the device’s sensors active unnecessarily which in turn drains more battery power than usual. So if these gestures are not being used then go to Settings > Control and disable them.
Turn off voice wake up

So if you do not use the S-Voice feature make sure that you disable “wake up command” and “Voice wake up” feature going to the app settings to save the battery life.
