    A thought. Do you guys who have crap battery life have power saver turned off? It may be the difference between you and everyone else.
    Good question. I've had mediocre battery life lately (was awesome when I first got it).
    My power saver is turned off tho. Does it make much of a difference w it on?

    It's all about what ur phone is doing during those 7 hours. settings》battery 》 will tell you what's eating power. Keep a close eye on 'free' apps. They like to stay busy doing nothing productive.

    If you don't use CPU intensive apps or games then turn on Power Saving and check CPU Power Saving only.

    HUGE improvement in battery life for me. I was down to about 20%+ after 8 hours at work with mostly using tweetcaster, AC forum app, texting, and light Internet use. I had to charge the phone around noon to get me through the rest of the day.

    Today, I'm at 50%. Screen on time of 2hr 35mins.

    And there is NO lag, slowing down, or any other visible issue from turning the power Saving on.

    At 6pm after being 10hr 31mins off charger, I'm at 34% with a screen time on of 3hr 12mins.

    I have an Android phone and have noticed that the battery life depends upon type of usage. My battery consumption is more when I am browsing sites on my android. There are some apps that consume more battery and that could be one of the reason that your battery drops so quickly.

    I keep haptic feedback off - I'm thinking it's a battery killer for those of us who type a lot.

    I've just now turned on CPU power saving and screen power saving (but not the setting that flips black for white in the email app - hate that). We'll see how it does. It was doing pretty good without any of that before, so perhaps this will really help things.

    Either way, the standard battery on the GS3 is giving me what the Sedeio extended battery was giving me on my GNexus LTE.
