    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 1 hour Screen-On Time?

    So my S3's battery life is pretty bad -- it lasts around 7 hours with 1 hour of screen time (normal use). No WiFi, low light display settings, etc. I have the Battery Doctor app installed which improved it a little, but it still sucks for the most part. Any advice? Should I just get a new battery? Or could it be the phone itself?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! Try installing GSam Battery Monitor, which can give you a better breakdown of what is using battery. Also, although it sounds like you've already been doing some things to conserve battery life, review this guide: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ving-tips.html
