That's like saying "My firm gives me a 30 gallon fuel allowance every month so I just drive around to use it up". Weird!
Dee™, 21 May 2013Because I have over 3GB data to use per month with unlimited calls and txt, I have to burn it ... more Why didn’t you think about all this before you took it?
You did get information from both freefaller and I before hand to make an informed decision.
It can swap. Get a generic battery charger with a flat top that would allow the zerolemon to fit in the same manner it does in the phone. And when you find one, buy a next zerolemon so you don’t have to walk around with the original battery cover :).
Or just sell it to a friend that only has the original battery and would be glad for the extra juice and go back to what you were doing before. Not every thing is for every body.
B.T.W. putting your screen on full brightness has nothing to do with using your full 3GB of data and you very well know that. LOL. You were not doing it before when you were swapping batteries, so why is it so important now to put it on full brightness all the time.? It sounds like you are just trying hard to give the battery a bad review by demanding more than what you would from your other batteries and still wanting the time of an average user. Your needs are above what documentation calls average and you very well know that.
freefaller told us he got 9days use but I would be stupid to think I was going to get the same know how I use my phone and how I have it set-up (its nothing like what he says he does.)

From my older post, you guys know I use to get 10-14 hours.
on last use of zerolemon i got 40hours which took me down to 4% (and 4% is like 12% on original battery)
Took it off charger about 7am sunday and put it back to charge about 11pm Monday.
with the 4% (i use waze nav alot and GPS sucks battery)
you changed how you use the phone by increasing screen brightness (and maybe other things), so how are you really testing if you got what you paid for?
keep in mind 7000 in only 3.33X more than 2100 (X being what every time YOU would get on the original battery.) 7000 only sounds like plenty, but its not for a heavy user, which you are.
Someone should start adapting Sanyo's eneloop battery technology for better voltage handling.they are better in extreme temperature performance ability to Maintain 75% of their charge after 3 years of storage,recharged up to 1500 times.

I don't think Zerolemon being honest about their battery capacity or maybe here (Australia) is now getting cold and battery getting discharge faster.
Anthony, 21 May 2013Look at
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Rechargeable-Touchpad-Multi-Touch-Navigation/dp/B0093... morei dont think it would be better. But with developers optimising touchpads and touchscreens in general then maybe it would better yes. The problem tends to always be that we get a few options for controls.....and if we cant map or toggle them like with pinch to zoom then its not possible to play games easy. I tend to play the more complex 3d first person games, so others are easier often.
There is actually an app in playsore (bluetooth controller) that turns your phone into a controller with on screen buttons, and you play for example on your tablet, or another mobile. There is the lack of support again though with developers allowing us to input our own buttons, movements on games. It like all these controllera are trying to get recognised which then means developers are focused on them all rather than refining just one or two standard controllers. Thats my opinion anyway.

Even on poorly optimised games like nova 3 i have managed to eventuall y have an on screen set up (controls display) where i can play without missing a button practically throughout a level....whilst looking always at the tv. If they had the pinch to zoom controls larger and smaller like they do on Modern Combat 3 & 4 then i would have 99.9% chance of pressing what i am intending to. Which therefore rules out the need for a controller. And often i hear a touchscreen is actually better for aiming left and right, up down accurately and quick. Its taken me yrs of moving onscreens buttons to find the perfect set up LOL!

And the way you use your phone I'm sure almost 2 days is 3X what you use to get.
You can't compare with the time freefaller gets.
How I am setup and use, I have to charge every other night at home.
Before I would change every time I was in the car or near a PC.
Anthony, 21 May 2013I don't think the plan was for you to still be holding the phone in your hand when you have it... moreyeah true. But thats sort of my point. Who wouldnt use the mhl to see games in hd, on a large screen. And of course with bluetooth controllers now like moga,ipega and all the many others then its getting better all the time. But i will look into the windows 8....since gaming keyboards are so common now it seems, and also mapping apps are a possibility.

Seeing that gaming on the tv is that important to you, you should find out it the multi-touch PC touch pad would be compatible with your games. (Windows 8 touch pads are multi touch)
Freefaller™, 21 May 2013@ Dee™, Anthony, and everyone else..... I have removed my ZeroLemon 7000mAh battery for now... morethe only criticism i would give the phone, or Samsung really is that the mhl with a hdmi lead attached is already so heavy that anymore weight would be too much for me...since the weight also pulls slightly to the side. Anyway my samsung mhl lasted about 3weeks probably due to poor connection for gaming and also the tension on the wire continuously when gaming. Am hoping for a refund on that piece of trash.... it also unbalanced the phone, and was hard to hold in a comfortable way for playing games. Samsung could learn from decrescent mhl wires.
I recommend the app "Easy Lockscreen" http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_UfucnI1h2s I now have "Aix Weather Widget" and "Beautiful Smaller Home Weather" and "Pure Grid Calendar (4x1)" and "Pure Messenger List (4x1)" and "Sence Theme" as my lockscreen! And I use "Swapps" http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=pBA6Hf7s38U and the "Pure News Widget" as a shortcut/app in "Swapps"!
Android is so much more fun than WP8...!

See the link below about 64Gb cards in the S3.
After having a Sandisk 32Gb card die on me I wouldn't contemplate using them again.
64Gb cards are expensive at the moment. In the UK, I could buy one for about £38, ($57 USD Anthony), but I can buy 32Gb ones for £10 ($15 USD) - all Samsung branded.
Dee™, 21 May 2013Is that the brand name Anker?@ Dee™
Phew ! I'm not surprised you're only getting 2 days out of your battery with that lot running !
I've looked up those 3000mAh Samsung batteries before but the high cost means that they aren't really cost effective. I purchased 2 X Anker 2200mAh batteries and a desktop charger for ¼ of the price. If a battery dies on me it is a case of cover off, battery out, battery in, cover on, and I have a 100% charged battery in my phone in less that 30 seconds.
64Gb memory cards. They do work in the S3, but it seems that they cause problems for some people (again it seems to be Sandisk cards). Also, the cost of them at the moment means that aren't cost efficient.
