My S3 is draining rapidly, even w.new battery
I got my s3 last november, it was not until this summer when my galaxy started acting odd. For some reason my battery seems to last only an hour when I am on it, and when I am not on it, it will be at 99% at lets say 11pm, but by 9am it will be at 20%( with no use or no charging) . I have purchased a new battery and it did not seem to make a difference. In addition, my battery saving apps are no longer working anymore, I even reset my phone to factory and still it is doing it. even when I turned off all my notifications/functions.
At this point I am thinking about going back to my old iphone because it has a better battery life and I do not think my galaxy will be good for trips anymore. I used to charge my galaxy with the USB that came with my S3 but it no longer charges it, it gets stuck and does not charge. So I am using an HTC charger and it is charging fast.
Anyways, what options do I have? would my standard warranty be any good? can it be fixed? or should I go back to my I phone 3gs?
I want to get my galaxy's battery to last longer because I plan on traveling by the end of next month and I am worried it will die on me. I carry a spare battery already but it seems to drain fast as well (it is like it is draining when it is on standby, even when everything is off (GPS/Apps/data/etc etc)). Also, the bottom center of the back of my sg3 gets really hot when it is on (me using it)
