I just jumped in with my opinion about turning off all the cool features. In my post I actually said I get about a days worth and that I am happy with the battery.
The 'Return to home screen lag' is my only problem with the phone, and I am convinced most people have the same problem but are just not aware of it due to how they use the phone.
Use your SGS3 and browse the web for about 5 mins clicking through to about 10 different pages (on this website) and then press your home button and see if it takes a lot longer than usual to redraw to home page.
I would appreciate peoples findings....
You seem to be well informed when it comes to Android.
Could you recommend a good app for editing .docx files?
I am presently using Polaris Office 4.0 but I’m just wondering if there is something better out there.
Yep it is a good idea to wait for the wp8 devices. One cant help but think Android's market share will slide. Good for Samsung that they dont care about a particular os and are building top end wp8 devices. Perhaps SIII is the last of its kind.

May as well get a cheap nokia with good battery as it doesn't do anything else!!
Don't get me wrong I love my SGS3 and find the battery enough for me to use how I like and still get a day, but then again I am always near a charger so just plug it in if it gets low.
The home screen lag (slow redraw) though (as explained in my earlier comment yesterday), is totally unacceptable!!
I dont know with the other owners that complain about the battery life of this phone but the battery life on my s3 is good. And i definitely use wifi to browse the net and check emails plus listening to some music and watching a video or two. Maybe you guys should give your phones a rest sometime. There are other more worthwhile things to do than just sit and stare at your screens.

Try K-9 email client. I think it is better than the stock email app and might do ... moreStarted to install k-9 and read in the setup that it does not support exchange server or hotmail, so I canceled before it caused me problems.
Did you try it with any of the above mentioned?
HEY folkz ,,
I 've bought a new samsung galaxy sIII in pebbble blue last week , its a very awsome mobile that i have bought and experienced . I have noticed that the RAM was just 740 MB instead of 1 GB and the Application & games that i used downloaded goes and saves into phone memory . I'am so dipressed that there is no option to save it in SD Card . I also searched in play store also , i hav dowloaded that appp , but that could also not help me . Because of this the phone hangs and lags a bit little .........
PLEASE FRIEND HELP ME OUT
