    Hello all,
    Ever since the Jelly bean update I have been getting terrible battery life. I had all of my settings turned off and my screen down to the lowest setting. After a while I just got sick of not being able to use my phone so I bought an extended battery off of ebay for 12 bucks. Take a look at these screen shots. my brightness is turned up to 75% and I no longer have to worry about losing battery life. The phone does become a little thicker but the trade off is totally worth it. I hope this helps with some people's battery life issues.

    Yeah Im not a fan at all of the extra bulk those batteries add.. One of the main reasons I like my S3 is because of how sleek and thin it is.

    I got mine today. phone is not thin, true, but it is easier to hold onto and I love not having to worry about the charge. I bought a battery, back and case set by qcell off amazon for $16.99. so much happier now.

    I still don't understand people who care more about the way their phone "looks" rather than what it actually "does" and is "supposed to do." Considering the Galaxy S3 is cheaper feeling than the S2 and of course the iPhone, the added protection and battery life are key for the Galaxy S3 in my opinion. The standard battery sucks no matter what settings you use and I really hate having to worry if my phone is dead.

    Usually when searching for higher capacity batteries for phones you usually have either have to buy a crappy TPU case, or you have to spend time looking for one that may fit or lastly one you can mod.

    The ZeroLemon battery that I bought a month ago was daunting at first. I got used to it in about 6 days and I get about 3 days of moderate use without having to worry about plugging it in. Also, you get the pretty decent case included. The case holds the battery in and protects the phone as well which at first is strange but it fits perfectly and soon feels cool to hold. Add an Armor screen protector and , voila! After getting used to the weight it is actually easier to hold and easier to take pictures and watch video. For $25.00 you can't beat it.

    Is there anybody using "setting profiles" who can say it has made a difference?
