    Default Google+ is killing my battery

    I don't know why but Google +is eating my vbattery. I took it off the charger this morning and lost 10% battery in 30 minutes. I have the photo backup shut off. Any thoughts?

    Try clearing cache for G+ in Settings>Application Manager.

    Personally, I hate Google+ because of its wonky privacy snafus, so I never use it. I find that my phone and tablet work perfectly without it.

    No. Because I like using it too. It doesn't do this on my nexus 5

    Have you tried clearing cache in recovery? Try this: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Try directions for the S3.
