Samsung Galaxy S III Battery Life

Go into the notification tray and turn off WIFI/Blutooth/GPS if not using them. With these on the battery burns very fast cause phone is constantly looking for these signals. With them off you should notice considerable better battery.

Mine does the SAME thing! I had to buy a backup battery because it would run out so quickly - with little to no actual use! I, at least, am definitely not roaming.

TENEESHA1980,

I would like to look into this further for you. Are you roaming at all?

Thank you,

Re: Samsung Galaxy S III Battery Life

Thank you for the reply Victor. I actually have power save mode on and turn off apps after I use them but my battery still drains. From the time I take it off the charger in the AM (right before I walk out the door)  to the time I get to work (which is about 5 mins away) by battery has loss 5-7% and I'm not even using it. It sits on my desk and I'd say within 2 hours of being at work I'm at 80% and again I haven't used it. I used to keep it on the charger everyday so by the time I leave I have some battery but then I heard it's not good to keep it on the charger all day

Thanks for the post. You can go into the settings and there is an option called power saving mode. Here you can adjust settings that will save your battery by allowing certain features to use less or more power. You can also try changing your brightness settings and turn off apps running in the background. This will assist in saving you some battery time.
