    My battery on my galaxy s3 has been draining extremely fast, and not charging...When I plug it in to charge over night it says 100% in the morning, but the second I unplug it it goes down to around 36%...do you think I need a new battery? If so, how do I make sure I don't buy a bad or fake battery, but not pay high$? I'm going to try& turn it off and charge it, but this is really annoying. My iPhone never had this problem, but I like the Galaxy- the battery just sucks. I even close out all my apps, turn off Bluetooth and gps..is Amazon a safe place to buy a battery? What should I look for?

    Welcome to Android Central! It's most likely a dying battery. If you can't find (or don't trust) an OEM Samsung battery, then look for well-established brands of 3rd party battery, like Seidio or Anker. Only order for sellers with good return policies--Amazon is usually pretty good about this.
