    I've had the Razr Maxx HD for 2 days. Hubs has had the S3 for a month. His doesn't last a day w/out a charger. Mine does. In fact, mine says 69% battery after 11hrs 5 min off the charger, including 3hrs 53 min of screen on time.

    real world dude ... from the time you get up until the time you go to bed you may have to either plug it in a/c or a car charger for a 1/2 hr or so. charges realy really fast. still i think the battery is great

    nah for a few calls, txt, quick check of facebook, itl last me at least 18hours mate. im not on LTE though and dont know how the quad core compares to the dual for battery use....

    its mostly down to how long your screen is on and how bright you set it.. its a battery chewer

    Thanks
    My neighbors s3 is nice In work in a power plant and the lack of Otterbox or decent case is terrible.
    I want to go to Verizon tomorrow and play with s3 some more. I love the Motorola voice button like siri. Hopefully s voice is as good.
    Maybe the note 2 will be good

    I installed GSam Battery Monitor a couple of weeks ago to track down that gpsd sucker and get rid of it or get rid of apps using it and after I was done, I kept it to monitor my battery life.
    The results are pretty good battery life-wise, it says the battery last 28 hours on average but that's also counting the low usage week-ends.
    On a typical day at work, it's going from 100% at 8 am to 20% at 11 pm. And that's after downloading podcasts, facebooking, foursquareing, instagramming, using Google Maps and going to Chrome to solve some crossword puzzles with coworkers during coffee break (lots of screen time there)

    yeah. have u not activated google now yet.
    keep wifi on to help it know your location, it uses virtualy no data in background. gps helps more but uses too much battery
