I've tried everything. I have a black background now. GPS, Bluetooth etc all off. I have really strong reception too as I live and work in the city.
Even tried Better battery stats to find wake locks and couldn't find and did a factory reset. Going to wait for the Jelly Bean update. It that doesn't improve things significantly I'm going to return if for replacement.
It's disappointing. I love the phone, but it's hard to recommend it to people when your battery dies around 9pm every night with low-medium usage. For comparison, my 3 year old iphone 3gs was just making it through a complete day by the time i changed over.
Your 3GS is a complete different animal then the SGS3. It doesn't have a hi res screen, dual core cpu, gpu etc.... The battery should last longer on that phone.
Jabanero, make sure you turn off your wifi when you aren't using it, if not it will constantly search out new spots, this was advice given to me from I had an iphone many years ago.
