    I am not sure how mine is. I have gotten about half a day with moderate use. I have attached a link to the Picasa album. I would love some feedback. P. S. I had power saver on most of the time.

    That looks pretty bad to me..I generally get about 18-19 hours with 5-6 hours of screen time.

    Actually no, I've not bothered to perform a reset as of yet, since it has performed okay thus far. But, if it hiccups again, I will

    my battery life is good, but not that good... i can get a full day of heavy use, but after that it is pretty much time to charge.
    i use my phone a lot though, im guessing you're a light - moderate user.

    I am a light user. Typically since I'm at my desk and thus on my computer, I perform all social media stuff via the computer, versus using my device.

    Wow! Are you a light user? I am somewhat heavy. I am at 40 percent at 1PM light to moderate use. I took it off the charger about 8:30.

    No, 5-6 hours of screen time is not lite use at all.

    Duh.... Sorry. How do you manage to get those times? What brightness and other settings do you use?

    Default Re: S III Battery life...

    I have power saving mode on and I have my screen at less than 50%, probably about 40-45. I don't use the automatic brightness. I've always liked a brighter screen and when I got this phone, I just turned it down to about 75% only took a few hours to get used to and just kept turning it down.

    One thing that can really affect battery life, if you are in a place all day that doesn't have a great signal. Also I keep wifi, bluetooth, GPS etc off and only turn them on if I need them at the moment.

    This is my most recent, didn't screenshot the screen time, but it was right under 6 hours if I remember correctly.

    Okay I usually use power saver. And I keep GPS and WIFI on. But my signal is not great about 2 out of 5 bats.

    Turning off GPS and wifi should make a big difference.

    I use the Wifi at my house. So i just need to remember to turn it off when I leave.

    Might want to download AT&T's Smart Wifi, it can record places for you and I think you can set it to basically have the wifi off when you aren't in range of a saved spot.

    Hmmm.. Wouldn't that need GPS? I made a trip this afternoon and dropped from 90% to 40ish. But I used navigation, radio, and a few other apps. Half of this was with power saver off... Maybe I am just a heavy user. I really don't want to have to do a factory reset. So far I have "Survived" with my current battery life. But I do a few outdoor activities where a charger is not going to be around. So I want to make sure I am getting the most out of what I've got. P.S. Thanks for all the great advice so far. Sorry for any mistakes. I am a new user here. Also, the last part of the history is when my phone was charging in the car for about 45 minutes.

    Don't know how the smart wifi works, but don't think you need GPS. It's a free app, so you should try it and see how it works for you.

    Okay, thank you for your help.

    See if that works, but if it doesn't, turning off wifi and gps except when you use it saves a lot of battery.

    My battery life has been terrible. What is this 'Media'? It's always sucking up most of my battery. I rarely use media apps.

    It looks like it may be a bug in JB. I'm having the same problem and I found several bug reports filed that describe the problem:
