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

I just borrowed s3 3 days before, its realy nyce in touch sensitive and all, but battey realy goes down very fast, almost when 60% appears iam just connecting for charging..with in 1 hr full charged.
sadun, 31 Dec 2012My s3's ram is 833MB .Is that normal?If your phone's firmware is 4.1.1
Then your RAM is 833 mb.
If you are running on 4.0.4
Your RAM is799 mb
The higher, the better..
Yours is normal, the same as mine after 4.1.1. Update...

Iím using the polish 4.1.2 ROM I got from sammobile. I just got into the office so my wi-fi, bluetooth, mobile data, sound, power saving, sync, multi window, GPS and auto screen brightness are all on. Made 2 phone calls so far total 3 mins. read 4 emails and checked amazon and this web page. Skype,fb,viber and whats app is always running in the background.
I disconnected the phone at 5:13am this morning and 3h26m later it was down to 87%. battery temp is 28.0 degrees C voltage 4.105v. Iím turning off bluetooth now that Iím in the office but the rest will remain on. Ill take note of what I do today and let you know when the phone dies.
Using the fingers above that is an average drain of 3.79% per hour. I will use my phone more as the day goes along so that average will obviously not stay the same through out the day.
Note: when I installed 4.1.2 ROM, I cleared my cache partition then factory reset in that order twice before I rebooted the phone. Other than that I did nothing special. Just installed the apps I use and putting my custom settings for each one and set custom tones.
Question for youÖ
Are you using the original battery?
Are you using a case? If yes, what is the material and how thick is it? Does your cell service provider provide a strong signal?
don't worry. Sammy will soon solved your problems of frequent restarts and memory dead issues on this phone.

2d 14hr 24m 23s use and 56% battery remaining.... 4 days from a single charge... EASY!
ahmed, 02 Jan 2013my s3 take 6 hours to get charged from 0 to 100 percentage, is it normal or there is a problem... moreIf you are charging from a wall socket yes you might have a problem , however if you are charging from laptop/pc it normally takes more hours. Some laptops have a specific port which is dedicated to charging however this still does not match the charging times obtained by using the wall socket
Anthony, 02 Jan 2013The point I was making is because the human user is not using it, don't mean its not being use... moreI really wud like also to understand hw u get 14hrs in one charge. Mine is even worse since jelly update. Even my S2 lasts longer on standby. N my s3 is always at least 33degree evn on standby. I hard reset twice bt still eating battery. I removed all da antivirus bt noting.
