    Default longtime droid user, new to Samsung

    Hi - I've been using HTC Android phones for the past several years and am now the proud owner of a Samsung galaxy s3. Still learning about its formidable powers and trying to control battery drain.

    Try to download battery saver apps to help you.
    Close your bluthtooth and wireless while you are not using the phone.
    In addition, I am use the Htc One X, but I also want to buy a samsung galaxy 3 as christmas gift.

    Welcome to AC!!

    There is lots of easy things to do to increase battery life. Turn of live wallpapers, decrease sync times for apps, turn of 4G when not in use (though I couldn't figure out how to do this on a co-workers S3), keep Bluetooth and WiFi turned off when not in use. You can use battery management apps, but, I have not found a need to thus far. I usually get through the day without having to charge.
