I have had this phone for about a year.The battery life if reasonable, compared to other big screen phone on the market. I have had to disable some apps that I don't use and the battery last all day with minimal use.If I don't use it at all, ie; receive calls, msg, use internet,use radio and all the rest then the battery would last 3 day and a half. I've done this experiment.
Also you can't play flash unless you do some rooting or install some apps that support flash.
To read,write xsl, docs and PowerPoint there are apps on the market.The Polaris app which come with the phone is limited. There are lots of apps per-installed that I don't use them and you can't uninstall them.The only thing you can do is to disable them but as soon as you reboot the phone those apps are back and running as normal.so you have to go through the apps again to disable them, very annoying. Another thing to remember and I found out myself is that every app that has been installed and every app that you install from the market reads and track your mobile phone no,msg,call and so on.Every thing you do and not do you are been tracked and watched behind the scene. So, as you can see security it's rubbish.That's why I don't do much with it.I am still using an old phone.This is were you would have to think hard on your decision if you want a phone that tracks every movement you do and you don't care about your privacy or you look at simple option for a just a simple phone used for emergency and be contactable.
Hope this will help.

Has anyone try the ZeroLemon Galaxy S3 7000mAh Extended Battery on Amazon? I read in XDA it can last 3 days on regular use.
Galaxy S4 might have an FM radio again, after they removed it from the S3 LTE (4G) for reasons best known to Samsung's engineers. Just bought an S3LTE and I'll be selling it now, since it doesn't have FM radio.
