    Hi everyone

    I just got the Samsung Galaxy S3 today. chose it over Iphone 5

    1. I keep getting notifications if i get a text message or something from twitter/facebook. How do I remove this so Twitter and Facebook is only updated if I click on the App..

    2. What are tips for saving battery?

    For #1. There may be a setting to disable pop up notifications or notification bar messages for each app. I don't use Twitter or Facebook so can't help with those apps.

    For #2. I use the Power saving feature, and keep GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi off unless needed. Auto screen timeout is set to one minute. You could probably get more aggressive on the various settings. I think there are a few battery related posts in the S3 forum that have many more tips and options shared by those who have dug into battery and power optimization.

    #1 go to accounts and sync in settings and remove twitter and fb accounts.
    #2 turn off screen auto brightnes and keep it low as u can

    p.s, no offence Dog but powersaving mode like halfs the power of the phone so no point having such a monster phone, id save that for emergencys

    1. Go into the settings inside FB app and uncheck the notifications option.

    2. Screen brightness as minimum as possible.

    Big +. Screen is a super hog. Turn brightness all the way down when you can

    No probs Funk. I'm trying to see how long I can use the phone in a hobbled state and still be happy with it. Sort of a self imposed throttle governor. To me the S3 still flies. I may turn this feature off later on if the Jelly Bean update needs more horsepower. It's kind of a comforting feeling to know I have more if needed.
