S3, 24 Jan 2013The phones DAM awesome but the battery life especially after the new update is got f**ked up.Yes Definitely, After the update of 4.1.2 jellybean or Latest Update 4.1.2 XELLA in which Samsung fixed the bootloader issue, There is a major decrease in battery life as well. When i was using 4.1.1 jellybean i simply got 6hrs on-screen time. (Sync off, Wifi constantly On, Games, Browsing, Whatsapp etc) But now Hardly 5hrs on-screen time. Usage is still the same. Not a Major impact. But seems normal.

(FIXED: SUDDEN DEATH ISSUE in Galaxy SIII) Search Google & you will find majority of Galaxy SIII users suffering from this issue & having bricked devices. Which was dead suddenly. So be happy as you are safe now.

Eslam3zazy, 25 Jan 2013Do you think we will get key lime pie? to our phones (S3)Hey, I hope we get 5.0 Key Lime Pie. The SGS2 got a major android update (2.3→4.0) so I think the SGS3 should get 5.0 as our last major update.
