    Now that you have your Samsung Galaxy S III device, share your battery use...

    Have you noticed great, good or just okay battery life?

    Post images, too

    Mine (AT&T) has just been charged to 100%, so I guess we'll see how well it does tomorrow...

    Method 1
    Sweep your hand to the left or right across the screen to capture a screenshot.

    Method 2
    Press and hold Power + Home buttons at the same time for 2 seconds.

    The captured screenshot will be stored at /sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots/ folder.

    Thanks! I would have never known about method one! It's kind of wonky until you figure out the right speed and finger positions to do it. Took me about ten tries to get consistent with it.

    Also, Battery life seems grate for me so far though I don't have a read on hours yet. Will update at the end of this cycle.

    Battery life has been decent this morning with pretty so far. I will try to pay more attention. In the office, my phones have always been charging when not in use.

    I cycled my battery twice. The second time it took what seemed forever to die. I'm loving the battery life so far.

    I've been disturbed by how fast the battery is dropping so far, but I have a feeling that has to do with the fact I haven't let the screen go blank since I picked it up this morning.

    This seems to mirror about what my friend on Sprint with his SGSIII is showing for battery life...

    I would say that isn't bad for a dual core, running 1.5 ghz on that nice massive display with all the toying around everyone is doing with their new baby

    Yesterday I unplugged it 7:00 am and at 11:00 pm it was at 69%. I was in the office all day and did not use it too much, othr than emails and a few phone calls, but I am very happy with that. It is similar to what I received with the iPhone, RAZR MAXX and other good battery phones. I am in an LTE area.

    Supposedly when you receive it you charge it full right away for a couple of hours, then you use it until the phone shuts itself down. And then you charge it back to full and use it normally from that point. I think.

    So far today, it is running for 11hours, 2 hours of screen time browsing the internet, and 30 minutes of calls, plus some e-mails, texts, pictures, etc.--sitting at 57% remaining. Very impressive, and this is only the 2nd day that I've had the phone, so I haven't cycled the battery at all.

    Considering your cell standby was the highest usage of power, I can conclusively say you WERE NOT on your phone all day!

    When you actually use your phone, the screen would be the biggest user of battery .

    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?
