ramintm2014, 07 Jan 2015hi i am irani . -why lie say sp very very better than s3 -S3 is far better than Sp... Sp is a crap phone trust me.
I had exactly the same issues discussed here (Battery going from 100-5% in like 3 hours ... buggy system keeps on restarting -crashing ... slow response ... even after running jelly bean ... then i did 2 things ... 1. bought a 5300mAh battery for 20 euros from china ... 2. installed CyanogenMod Android kitkat (CM11M12) ... now the s3 is smooth .. fast .. reliable .. and lasts really long before needing to recharge it ...
the biggest bit of crap thit I ever purchased goes of network 2 to 3 times a day
Battery used to be good but it is deteriorating at a rapid rate :( have had it 2 years
When is battery 0% phone turns off , normaly . When I use the phone after 1 hour , my battery level is about 40 or 50 or more % . It wasn't charge on charger. I hava wi-fi so i think it has wi-fi charging....Someones opinion please ???
ramintm2014, 05 Jan 2015galaxy s3 is ugly but xperia sp very very beautiful yes SP is beautiful, but it lags a lot, you should choose S3, it has amoled screen and also doesn't lag like SP.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2015battery its a píece of crap , it last less than an hour if i am in facebook1- Facebook and his spoiled son ( messenger ) are killing the battery in all phone brands not only on S3 !!! So advice you to remove ( messenger ) and Install instead of it app called ( FacebookChatEnabler ) After that Facebook will not be required to install annoying ( messenger ) ....
2- Not install many apps that consuming battery and ram such as social network apps or games ...etc, You must know that most of these applications are running in the background even if not used !!!!! Only install what you really need in your daily life .
3- If you are using battery for more than 18 months it’s better to change and get a new one .
The "begining"... Hands down. Love that phone even after those years. Performance, display, camera all great. Only battery is down side but not that much. Sure that in 2015 still will be a decent device. SGS3-The King.
