    Settings show 63% battery usage from screen. Brightness is below 50% and screen timeout is 15 seconds. However, after about a minute of inactivity the screen lights up for itself and continues blinking on and off in 15 sec intervals.

    With respect to freezing up, the phone does not respond to anything except forced shutdown. The phone is about 10 months old.

    Restart in Safe Mode (see How To Enable And Disable Safe Mode On Samsung Galaxy S3 ). If it stops happening, one of your apps is going rogue. If it still happens, either the firmware is corrupt or some hardware went bad.

    If you bought it new, though, it's still under warranty, so why not just ask the carrier to please repair or replace it? (After making sure it's not one of your apps.)
