This is the full review of today’s battery use I could be considered average for me.
Took it of the charger 100% at 5:13am and it was dead by 6:45pm.
That was a run time of 13h 32m
The breakdown is as follows...
Phone calls 6 30min 5sec
Email sent 1
Some What’s app use
Tunein radio app 1hour 45min
10min of streaming video using H+
45min of Netflix using wifi
2 mp3 attachments downloads.
Play mp3 7min 27sec
Facebook & google talk in multi window mode 1 hour
Fm radio in background 1hour 30min
The rest of the time was so called idel.
Jacl, 03 Jan 2013It's amazing that ur batt can last that long. Am still using da original batt bt no heavy usag... morePerform a factory reset once. Before that take the backup of all your data. And after that install whichever apps you want and keep an eye on app running on background which might drain your battery faster.
I am using for min 2 hours of talking,30 text msg, gmail & FB synced, an hour of wifi & internet browsing. At the end of the day around 19:00 hrs I will have around 56% :-)

Am still using da original batt bt no heavy usage. I uninstall da 2 antivirus installed bt still draining. I wonder whats wrong. Like at 13:40 i left the fone at 87% n at 17:40 it was 59% without any usage. I wish i cud take it back to Samsung bt i bought it in Italy last June n am now in Angola. Really strange.
Jason, 03 Jan 2013Thanks but i really wonder how you manage to get 14 hours in one single charge.
I think if ... moredear see ur usage its called heavy use of 1 hour continues browsing daily.
your phone is ok. your use is high.
phone average gives 5 hours on browsing because it has big screen
and u listen radio for an hour.
so in my eyes 1 hour radio and 1 hour continues browing with 68% is quiet perfect timing.
i am happy with my s3.
any body know when will come jelly bean on s3 4.1.2
m still waiting for
best fone ever forever ' no more buy any mobile
