That being said, my (former) Note 2 lasted me thru a day easily, but it had a huge battery. Why can my iPhone 5 with a small battery last whole a day, but my S3 can't with a larger battery? Poor energy management.
Curious, why would one be streaming music and using GPS and expecting the battery to last? I've turned on my GPS maybe 5 times in 2 years with my android phone. You travel for work? Why the need for always on GPS?
