I just wanted Tcool to stop telling people that the SIII has tec in it to auto stop charging the battery when it reaches 100%.
I don't need another app
Battery HD by smallte.ch already gives voice alerts
and I have it set for 100, 80 & 20 for charge. 5 & 20 for discharge.
AnonD-187766, 20 Sep 2013yes, I did the same but no change!!!!
Thanks anyway for your support and info. Finally I found the solution:
Go to Settings > Application Manager > All applications (on the top). Locate the "BadgeProvider" app, once in there select "clear data"
you need to restart the phone after that apparently.
Clearing Badge Provider worked for me.

Anthony, 19 Sep 2013Thanks for bring that up. It helps me poke another hole in Tcool claim.

What i do know is i go for as little damage as possible when charging i.e 95% howver accurate that may be, i dont charge it to full, or possibly overcharge on purpose.

HTC HD2 could what yo... moreI know from my s1 that one time i left it charging for ages and forgot, when i got to it it showed full but the charging icon had ended, i went to battery info and i didnt say discharging, or charging, i believe it said battery full. My point being that i had read around that time from battery uni as i was interested, and they suggest no overcharging, and ideally 95% charge to save damage. So some phones then imo (with sgs1) can eventually tell the battery has reached full capacity, and stop the charge.

HTC HD2 could what you mentioned to a point.
You could set it not to charge when connected to a USB port and it was on.
You would still get the USB sync logo but no charging logo.
Which brings me to my point, If the SIII stops charging when the battery is full as Tcool want to claim, why dose the charging logo you see when the phone is on, not switch back to the regular battery logo?
Don’t call a trickle charging mode the same thing as not charging at all.
Tcool, 19 Sep 2013 Again you are talking about over charging, that is a thing of the past. Latest technology ... moreSearch up battery university.com. They mention that lithium phone batteries have various protection cut out switches in place , triggered by the battery being damaged by overcharge. However some phones when on and chargeing do "appear" to stop the charging processs, thid is not so if the phone is off, and its not all phones. Overcharging is not recommended, and the charge full discharge 3 times was/is for battery memory/calibration - meaning the reading is more accurate after doing so.

I would say they are all about in the same class with advantages and disadvantages over each other.
The Droid will give you the longest battery up time.
The one X & X+ has the best U.I.
The SIII has removable battery and S-features
And average user of the SIII could get any ware between 10-14 hours. Key word being average.
i want to buy a new mobile but i don't know what to buy Samsung galaxy S3 or Samsung galaxy S4 mini...
can anyone suggest to me what to buy ?
