    check out Deep Sleep Battery Saver on google play. This app did the trick for my wifes phone that would die in 8 hrs and now has 50% after 8 hrs. So I put it on my daughters and wham it works great.

    It is a great app, but you would probably want to post some screen shots of your battery life and let some of these guru's around here see where the problems are at.... Also download gsam and that will tell you what is running.

    hey guys i have a solution to this kind of problems. easy battery saver is an android app by using this we can avoid battery discharge and by uninstalling unnecessary apps, reducing the brightness of background also we will extend battery life.

    Thanks

    Hi dear, I also updated my Samsung S3 Mini with XXAMB3 firmware and same battery drain issue, Now i updated my mobile with XXAMA4 Firmware and solved this problem, Battery timing is now fantastic, u also do some other things after updating this firmware
    1: Go in Application manager then in All and disable SPS( Samsung Push Service)
    2: In Wifi Advance Settings keep Wifi on during sleep..Select it as Never
    3: Better to use GSM only in Network Mood
    4: Go in More Settings and then Mobile Network then select Network Operators and please 1st chose other operators 2 or 3 then manualy select your original service provider network...with this method signal strength will also improve.
    Here is link for firmware


    Hopefully now u will be get happy after good battery time

    hi,

    I been having this problem recently and found that it was google talk that was the problem. After updating firmware battery was draining really quickly. Deleted everything and made no difference. I signed out of google talk and voila battery is back to normal

    Hope this helps

    Hi there
    Just an update, I had the same problem when I completed an ota upgrade, my battery just seems to drain very quickly. I updated the firmware via samsung kies, doing a a back as recommended by the software, so far my battery has been performing as it came out the box, perfect. It seems there was a glitch via OTA update. So far since last night with gaming, whatsapp and taking photo's, my battery seems to be only now on 41% and I charged it yesterday at about 3pm after the firmware update via kies.

    I recently bought the SP since it was supposed to have long battery life and so far im charging it every day and thats with minimal usage. in fact its been off charge now for 20 minutes and its dropped to 98%. Ive found that Chrome keeps turning itself on in the background even when all sync is off, wifi is off, mobile data, bluetooth everything is off.

    Hi I am new to this forum and first of all I should say I am a Grandma who has her own computer and is able to be quite technical - so I thought.

    Not now though since being given this S111 mini as a present on Sunday morning. I have got used to the layout, have looked at mini guides on my computer, etc.

    But - I am now asking just how long should this battery last? It is back on charge now and it seems to want it everyday. I accept I will have used a lot of battery just 'travelling' around the phone for the first two days.

    1. I have only used the phone for a few messages, phone calls and took two photos.
    2. I have not even searched the internet - turned off Wi-Fi although have checked that I have a signal with BT-Fon.
    3. Turned screen brightness down.
    4, Switched on power saving - I think it was called.
    5. Have read somewhere that it is a good idea to disable Google - but then I haven't even signed up for it. I do not know how to disable it.
    6. I know how to make sure I have no applications running - however - did I read that Google can continue searching anyway. Can anyone tell me what is the G with two arrows underneath at the top of the phone 'menu' bar? I think I have noticed one of the arrows lit up.

    I have read the threads above but some of it goes 'over the top of my head' do you think I should find a young person with one of these phones and ask them to give me some advice or do you think I could get used to it? My 'old' phone was basic with slide up screen, etc and a good camera. Oh! lovely long battery life. (Nothing technical just sent text and used phone.)

    At the moment I am so pleased I did not go out and buy one - lovely to get it as a present. So at the moment I would say it is not a phone that I am enjoying using but the challenge is good.

    Any tips on what I might be able to 'switch' off that comes installed and uses battery would be helpful.

    Thank you.

    I like to say something interesting for any Samsung Device that his version is near version of Galaxy S3 mini .

    OK -- There are some ways that i have tested for a long time ...

    Step 1.Go to the "Settings"
    Step 2.On the bottom click "Developer Options' (Turn it "On")
    Step 3.Again go te the bottom and click "Limit backrounds processes" (opens a list) and at the 2nd words of list click "No backrounds processes"
    Step 4.Under "Limit backrounds processes" you see "Show all ANRs" click in it to active ...

    Thank you that have read my answer ....

    For the Samsung Galexy S3 mini, I've found that the LTE is a huge battery drain! I don't use data on my phone so there is no need to have LTE on. My battery use to last 17 hours before I turned off LTE. Now the battery lasts more then 36 hours. To turn off LTE, go into your Settings and under Connections choose more networks. Choose Mobile Networks and then Network Mode. I use WCDMA network were i live but you will need to find out what network works for you. Just remember that LTE will be off so if you use data, turn on LTE to get the fast data connection. Texting and phone wont work if you choose the wrong network so test your phone after you switch to make sure you selected the correct network. North America mostly uses WCDMA while the rest of the World uses GSM. Hope this helps.

    Same problem right here! I have to recharge my phone 3-4 times a day, even though I barely use it and I'm using the deep sleep battery saver. Is it just a calibration problem or is the battery dead?
    Also the recharge time became very short as well (+- 30 mn)

    Thank you for any help!
