Galaxy Note II Battery...

I just traded my i5 for the Note 2...its an amazing device and the battery is great but not the day to day in a half amazing battery that I was expecting. It last pretty good but a lot less than expected. Could this be because of 4.3? I will add screenshots of my battery throughout the day with as little use as possible. But here's where I am: Its been 7h 33m 2s and I'm at 33% with some text but thats it. Any opinions? Thanks in advance!

Update: I'm at 26% At 8h 2m 44s. Its not bad but not what the Note line is known for IMO; if it is please let me know. Is this normal?
