Why does it take so long in past week to charge the battery?

It takes 12 hrs to fully charge the battery. I have tried: App to improve efficiency of battery. I think it was caused by: too many apps

If you have installed something new about a week ago try uninstalling it because there may be an application using too much power. I don't remember if the Note3 has this feature but you can also check which apps are taking up all your power by checking SETTINGS => BATTERY => BATTERY USAGE. I you see an offending app taking too much data just uninstall it.

If you cannot locate the offending app it may not be the app but too many of your battery's internal cells have gone bad. Most Samsung phones have replaceable batteries which makes them far superior to apple in that regard. I replaced my Samsung Note3 battery with one I got off the internet for $25. My battery life was much better after that. If those two things fail to work, then your best option, though I know its a pain, is to install Samsung Kies and backup your phone, then do a factory reset. When you restore your phone do not restore the apps. Instead install them as you need them. Most people end up with tons of apps they don't use, so a backup and reset is a way to just clean all the garbage out and pretty much start with a new phone. Also this approach has the added benefit of backing up all your data. Someone I met the other day lost all their pictures from the past year because they didn't their phone up. This happens all too often and that kind of data is irreplaceable.
