Well, I'm really disappointed with battery life after day one, but it's not really the SG3's fault. Because of the poor ATT signal at my house, it's eating the a battery
I really want off of Verizon, because my signal at work with them is pathetic (ATT is good there). But since my ATT signal is awful at home, I'm going to eat thru battery at one or the other location it seems.
Rather weird, but I literally just took my device off the charger. It was at 100%, then I walk from upstairs to downstairs, it took me less than a minute.
Wait for it...
My battery is now 98%! Seriously, I've not done anything on the device yet.
I'll monitor it for now, and if it is still crap later today, I'll have to wipe and reload it. Odd though, no?
I'm not entirely sure about the SGS3 but all of my Android phones in the past charged like this:
The battery reaches 100% and the charging switches off. Once it drops to a certain percentage it comes back on and the cycle repeats. So, if you're charging overnight, depending on what point of that cycle you unplug the phone it's not unusual to see it drop a few points right off the bat.
So heres my Screenshot. Got it Saturday..So sunday morning I take it off the charger and im doing various things..loading apps..messaging trying to get used to andriod again (been on ios for 3 years).heres my screenshot..not too bad coming from an iPhone 4s but nowhere near where some of you guys have reached
Yesterday I used the phone nonstop for about an hour watching videos and browsing the web, and then went out for about two hours on a run with it in my backpack running google music (playing music from my SD card, not streaming) and a pedometer app on and constantly tracking my steps and distance. I was able to get home and use the phone with normal usage for another 8 hours without hitting low battery. Ill know better today since im in the office all day. I was in a non-LTE area yesterday and will be again today.
I seriously hope my battery isnt defective any help here would be possible.here are my stats..Got the phone saturday, so this is only my second charge cycle..maybe its because the signal at my job isnt that great..and even the wifi here is ehh...any help would be GREAT..thanks
Although today's my first full day with the phone I can tell already that the battery life is pretty good. I'm at 55% after being unplugged for 6-1/2 hours and HEAVY use... ya know, that new phone heavy use when you can't put it down. Lol. So far so good.

really???? mines will never get that, what in the world are your settings on?????
It's not his settings. Notice in the screenshot he posted that his screen is only at 17%. He is just a very light user. If he posted his screen info you would most likely see that it was on for no more than an hour or two.
