    Default My Accessories Recommendations

    Case - Diztronic Matte Black TPU Case

    This isn't an Otterbox that is going to survive 10 feet drops, but I feel assured that it will protect your phone from the occasionally time where you get out the car and forget the phone is in your lap. It also looks extremely good with the marble white GS3, and it's not expensive.

    Screen Protector -Ultimate Clear Plus Samsung Galaxy S3 Rearth Ringbo Screen Protector

    When I was showing off the phone to a coworker, they told me I should buy a screen protector for the phone not knowing that I already had this one on it. It doesn't effect screen clarity at all, and I'm not sure how scratch resistant it is, but I'm not going to use mine as a test dummy to find out.

    Extended Battery
    - QCell 2x Samsung Galaxy S3 2300mAh Battery + Free Universal Battery Charger

    - QCell Samsung Galaxy S3 X-Life 4200mAh Extended Battery

    Sadly, I don't have these. But my brother and his wife own both of them and say both of them are amazing. For the 4200mAh battery, my brother told me he would normally get 7 hours or so with the regular battery, and now he is getting 13+ hours.

    And for the 2x 2300mAh batteries, he said they are both the same as the regular, but you get 2x of them with a charger that charges both of them at the same time.

    (They are both pretty cheap too.)

    Edit: After clicking the links to make sure they all work, I saw that both the batteries are currently unavailable so the price isn't shown. But both of the products were $20.

    Since the battery also has the OEM NFC antenna, do those QCell batteries have it. If not NFC won't work with them.

    Don't bother with these batteries and recharger. Batteries are definitely worse than stock, brand new only about 6.5 hours with light use. Charger takes forever to charge a battery.

    Here's a 2850mah thin battery for the S3. No NFC antenna if that's important to you. I've ordered from them before and their batteries are good to go. Have the 3400mah for my Epic4G and it easily outlasts the stock by 2x.

    Did you charge it completely before using it? You'll also need to run it down to dead and then recharge it completely again. That should condition it. Mine lasts quite a bit longer than the stock battery.
