All of you guys are NOOBS!
To save your battery life you can use ATK pro, or you can just go to SETTINGS > DEVELOPER OPTIONS > NO BACKGROUND PROCESSES. This must work my s3 can last for 2 days by just only texting. WHen im playing deadspace HD it lasts 4-5 hours. But its normal.
THINK BEFORE YOU BUY!

I know this because my provider is not there.

AnonD-8044, 21 Oct 2012I think my brain is not engaged and still not back up to speed with Android cause guess what..... moreYou do know you can make it thicker your self by buying the large extended battery.
Freedom of choice. We all don't want it thick and some don't want it thick all the time. your needs aren't everyone's own.
If Jellybean ups UI framerate to 60FPS then what is FPS now?? FPS is important for smoothness ans smoothness means no lag so it is important for consumer...Cant wait to try Jellybean out.
For all those (especialy Dee) who keep whining about when they are going to get JB on their phone I am enclosing a link that shows when it is arriving. The list is updated daily, so you can see your Country's status.
I think my brain is not engaged and still not back up to speed with Android cause guess what..??
If you go to settings scroll to power saving well i have had that switched ON..If you actuallY tap on the setting it brings up a list of the power saver settings,,i did not know you could tap on these setting it just looks like you switcH it ON/OFF,,this should be made more clearer..I switched it off and run Quadrant and got up to 70 FPS which is more ;like it..
If you want your device at full power stuff that setting it cripples your device...WAYHEY thats more like it back up to speed now...The thing is fair enough it saves battery but no need to cripple the device that defeats the object of a powerfull smartfone in the first place....Make the smartfone thicker making it easier to hold and stick in a bigger battery then we all win..
Quadrant with power save on maximum FPS 40 but with it turned off it hits 70 FPS almost double performance..
Just Very Very Happy with my Samsung I9300 Galaxy SIII, and SII as well.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2012For me, screen brightness usually stays below 20%. I find it glaring anything above that. It's... moreRight dropped to Standrad screen mode and 50% brightness for battery boost..
AnonD-5465, 21 Oct 2012dude in the first 10 days of charging the battery gonna feel discharging fast , mine after 10 ... moreYes i agree that cellular network and screen brightness are biggest battery killers just wish could enjoy screen full blast all the time...Have halved screen brightness and got more battery life obviously...
What did you do to test browser i am unfamiliar with browser testers,,thanks.....I can then check mine and see if something is making it run bit slow..
AnonD-8044, 21 Oct 2012My screen 100% so tommorrow will knock it down to 50%. What screen mode you using i am using ... moredude in the first 10 days of charging the battery gonna feel discharging fast , mine after 10 days or 12 the battery got better and better, by the way i use ipad2 and the s3 the s3 browser is faster another thing thats a big display 4.8" so if u gonna use it 100% full brightness sure will consume more battery. from my long experience with androids what kills the battery is the high brightness and mobile data kept constantly on , i solved it by using a car charger and while in work connecting via usb to charge to my laptop thats how i always have good battery backup hhhhhhhhh :)))) also try html5test from thw browser and check ur score mine is about 412 exceeding even desktop browsers , the bad thing is in gaming as the new need for speed asphalt7 it lasts for only 6hours,
also am using my nokia 808 pureview charger its 1.4A faster than the 1A charger that comes with the s3
Choco Fudge, 21 Oct 2012Android is full of crapware, bloatware and spyware that consumes power and data unknowingly.
h... moreAndroid does not have more malware... than iOS or WP8! Having the same kernel as Windows 8 could be a big virus and malware-problem for Lumia 920!
Lumia 920 is a bulky plastic brick, 185 g is more than Note II and even more than HTC Desire Z that is made of metal and have a full slide-out keyboard!
Lumia 920 does not have a FM-radio and can not play Adobe Flash 11 in the browser and Metro-UI is really ugly (but if you like the Metro-UI you can install a launcher on any Android to make it look and feel as WP8, but you can not install any different launcher on WP8)!
I can have more than 30 apps and games open on my S3 with no lag at all!
Android is full of crapware, bloatware and spyware that consumes power and data unknowingly.
had both the Lumia 900 (bloatware free, and Windows Marketplace has only few crapwares ) and GS 3, performance wise ,s3 wins. But it drains the battery alarmingly faster and consumes data larger than my 900. And when i do multitasking (like 3-4 open apps) it gets very laggy.,
i can't wait to upgrade my l900 to Nokia Lumia 920 and compare it to S3. But i think the L920 already won .
