    Question Anybody using Juicedefender? Would you recommend it?

    So I upgraded early from a LG Optimus S to a Galaxy S3. I love the phone how the battery life isn't so good. I heard about an app called Juicedefender today from a friend who uses it. Would anybody who uses recommend it?

    I would definitely recommend it! It works really great. Definitely saves my battery when I don't use it at all. It has doubled my battery life. If you use it you can get by with the plus version. If you buy it give it a couple days to get used to you how you use your phone before you notice a difference.

    No. DL'ed it the other day and it drained my battery more than without it. So my vote: no.

    I just started using Juice defender a couple of weeks ago. I do see about a 30% bump in my battery life. If your a heavy phone/data user it is not going to help you with battery life.

    If you use your phone occasionally or your phone sits for long periods without being used, it will help. It does this by disabling your wifi/3g/4g while your phone is sleeping. My phone is in my pocket a lot where its gets poor data signal - so it has helped me. I have it set to keep my wifi on at home. This way I don't have to wait for it to connect to the wifi. I thought it was worth the money for my needs. Try the free version to see if it helps you. Good luck!!!!

    I have a love/hate relationship with Juice Defender... I have the Pro version, which I picked up when I was on the Epic 4G... The stock version of the app didn't help me at all, the Pro version did a little with the automatic bluetooth on/off, wifi on/off options as well as the sleep mode functions.... but I think it caused more instability with other apps than it was worth. I get a minimum 18 hours with my GS3 with everything left on all the time, so I haven't seen the need to try JD out on this phone yet... If you are not getting at least 12-14 hours you need to look at some settings on your phone... I have gotten over 30 hours on a charge with no real effort, my wife uses the crap out of her phone (like 4-6 HOURS screen time) and still clocks in over 12 hours off charger...

    Juice Defender Ultimate works great for my Acer A500 (except it kills wifi and takes forever to reconnect) but does nothing for my S3. So my answer is.....no.

    I do however recommend juicy juice. That's some good stuff right there!!

    Come on Juice Defender hasn't been updated in a year! You'd better use an app that comes with regular updates like GreenPower (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gpo.greenpower)

    Bought Green Power based on your post just to try it. Have used JD on a few different phones.

    This "seems" to be a little less invasive than JD, both running default settings.

    I do miss the ego stroke of seeing that the program is giving me X percent more battery life, unless I'm missing it somewhere.

    Thanks

    I had JD Ultimate, but got rid of it. It didn't increase my battery life enough to bother. So I started using my smartphone smarter (pun intended), and my battery life has increased. Imagine that. I'm a pretty heavy user, so it makes a difference. For those times when I really need to extend my use (like using my SkyDroid app on the golf course), I have a Gorilla Gadgets extended battery that gives me all the power I need and more. I may check out the free version of GreenPower Battery Saver though. It looks like a pretty good app.
    Not every device nor provider is for everyone. So choose carefully before you put your money down. Then live with your decision.

    Yeah...i tried JD for a week then uninstalled...it said it was making my battery life better when it actually was making it worst.
    Did I help you at all? Return the favor by giving me a "thanks"

    Every time I go into a Sprint store to have my phone serviced they tell me JD is bad for my phone. I don't know. But I did noticed it has not been updated in a very long time. Think I will try Green Power. And the Gorilla Gadgets battery is a beast. I use it for those long out of town trips.

    Ive had it and never noticed a big difference! I got annoyed with having to wait for the data to turn back on.

    My Sprint store has pulled that on me before too. Not the brightest of people. They also consider any launcher rooting.

    Juice Defender works fine for me, but I think it's not being actively developed.
    Green Power does help by turning off my data when the screen is off. But the best thing I've learned is just keep a car charger with you when you travel.
