I just bought my Galaxy S3 a little more than 5 months ago. The battery life has been kinda short from the beginning but I am now faced with a new issue. The battery drains about 1% every other minute and then at the end when its around 10% the screen blurs and then the phone hangs before shutting down. Kindly help me with this problem.

Welcome to the forums.
I would try clearing cache in recovery first. Here is how: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...ing-into-recovery-mode-galaxy-s2-s3-tab2.html

Sounds like you have one or more apps running wild. Try booting into Safe mode http://support.verizonwireless.com/support/devices/knowledge_base.html/59242 (you won't be able to use any 3rd party apps) and see if the problem goes away. If it does then you know it's some app(s) that you installed. Just a matter of using the right tools to identify the culprit after that.
