I owned a s3 before so I understand how frustrating the battery drain can be. I finally had enough of it, bought a new phone, and haven't regretted it since.

Hello S3 users ...
Settings to speed up system to get maximum performance ( RAM & Battery ) for galaxy S3 ( 4.3 ) ( 4.1.2 ) :
1- in developer options scroll down to Drowing : select animation is off for ( windows animation scale - transion animation scale - animator duration scale ) .
2- in developer options scroll down to Apps : limit background processes and select 4 processes at most . ***( always repeat this selection after turn on or restart phone ) .
3- In application manager ( turn off ) (disable) unnecessary bloatware apps and services for ( google & samsung ) Because it always running in the background and consuming dramatically battery life and Ram .
4- Not install many apps that consuming battery and Ram such as social network apps or games ...etc, You must know that most of these applications are running in the background even if not used !!!!! Only install what you really need in your daily life .
5- in display reduce brightness level less than half . ( not use auto brightness )
6- turn off ( NFC - S Beam - Nearby devices - Screen Mirroring - Motion - Smart Screen - Voice control - Page buddy - Multi windows - Daydeam ) .
7- turned off ( sync ) google account & access to location .
8- Not use live wallpapers.
9- reduce number of pages & widget on home screen ( maximum 3 pages ) .
10- always clean up system ( Ram and cash ) .
11- use home button to close apps that running in the background . After that go to settings > application manager > runnig and stop active apps ( Except system apps ) .
12- use power saving mode to reduce battery consumption ( limit cpu speed ).

For Extremist battery saving mode :

1- Use black wallpaper background in home and lock screens .
2- Not use vibrations in ( call - ringtons - notifications ) .
3- Not use sounds in ( dailing keypad - touch screen - lock and unlock screen ) .
4-Switch off touch key light .
5- Set screen timeout 15 seconds .
6- Not use any live Widget .

Battery charging :
1-To get speed charge close all apps during charge or use airplane mode or turn off phone before charge .
2- If you faced any problem such as slow ( bad ) charge , check your charger , Before you think about change the charger ( adapter& usb cable ) , first change the usb cable ( get new one ) then watch the result .
3- Always use original charger , never use bad quality it will damage your battery and phone .
4- If you are using battery for more than 18 months itís better to change and get a new one ( original ) .
Golden solution for most apps problems :
If you have any problem with any app
Go to settings > application manager > application ( name ) :
Force stop
Clear data
Then restart phone . If the problem continues delete app then install it again , If the problem continues go to recovery mode and choose wipe data partition then reboot system .
If you canít solve the problem in any way you should format ( reset ) your phone or flash a new official ROM .
Other Information :
After update or flash a new ROM itís better to format ( reset ) phone to get pure system to avoid many problems such as overheating or bad charging.

Unbelievable this phone is still so popular. The day I gave mine up was one of the happiest phone-related moments of my life. No more charging two times a day for me.

Was really a great phone until updated to 4.3.

It's not as fast and responsive as on 4.0.4 anymore.
Now all the time S3 is running out of memory, the apps are crashing while being used. S3 has now lot of lags and works much worse than S2 of my wife.

Samsung, what have you done? Does the update have to force S3 owners to buy a newer flagship of Samsung? You're dreaming! No trust anymore.

I'd like to go back to the 4.0.4 firmware.

Yes that is true ........ android version ( 4.3 ) has become more battery consumption because of new bloatware apps and services ( Samsung & Google ) were added to ( 4.3 ) .... So you have to turn off manually all these apps & services to stop battery draining ...

Was a great phone until the Samsung update ruined it. Now has terrible battery life and nothing seems to fix it. It puts me off buying an S5.

Hi all,
I brought my GS3 in July this year from Harvey Normans for $400.00 AUS this first handset lasted 5 weeks. The proximity sensor stopped working and I could not end a call because the screen went black and nothing I did could wake it up again. Luckily Samsung replaced the phone free of charge. Now my replacement phone has little or no cell connection and I can't make calls on it. This phone is only 6 weeks old. Its currently at Samsung Service Plaza getting a new mainboard fitted and I am hoping I have no more trouble with the phone. I have many Samsung products in my house and for the most they are good products its just i'm having a bad run with their phones. WARNING: Don't put a external antenna on your S3 because you will not have cell connection if you do.

Your S3 has Android 4.3 Jellybean which is the very latest update from the GS3 ICS is what the phone came out with on its release so your phone is running the very latest rom on it. Also to help save battery life turn off Sync all your accounts because it just eats the battery very fast.

Well done! It's nice to see comments from someone with common sense. Unfortunately the people on this Forum never learn!

I had the same problem as you. The problem is the power button due to wear and tear or power button is stuck. Solution, send back to shop for repair it (safer route) or if you dare do like this video (do it on your own risk)..

Many users complain like you about the battery drain in S3 or other phones .
Do you know why ????
The answer : because they don't know how to manage the system and apps to get the maximum energy of the battery ....
Many users are installing many apps, for example, more than 60 apps. While in fact they don't use more than 10 apps !!!! Do you know that the rest of the apps are running in the background and consuming all of the battery even if it were not used !!!!!
The main idea you have to install the important apps that use in your daily life. And delete unimportant apps. also turn off ( disable ) unnecessary Samsung and Google services & apps in order to save RAM and battery life ....
