Note 3 battery issues on 4.4.2!!!!!

There is a process that takes up a huge amount of battery. "com.sec.android.app.sbrowser:sandboxed_process0"  It happens with stock browser, Chrome, Chrome Beta (com.chrome.beta:sandboxed_process0)  I used to get 1.5-2 days on battery and even after going to 4.4.2 8 months ago, this issue just started within the last couple of weeks.  It will drain my entire battery in 8-9hrs of light to no use.  This sandboxed process seems to be the major change in the battery usage details, it's portion much larger.  I've factory reset, tried all browsers, changed location settings, don't have Skype (one of the original issues with 4.4.2), tried everything I've read except rooting.  What is the deal with this change in my battery results?

Try to boot into recovery and wipe cache. Volume up, home button, power button until it pops up with blue words. scroll down with volume key to "wipe cache" press power button, wipe, then go back and reboot phone. Try and uninstall unneeded apps also.
