If you set your phone up right, you should be able to make it thru a full days usage easily.
I think the key is you're connected to wifi so much. If you're in an area with a weak data signal, the battery life can be dramatically impacted, depending on your use.

I'm using Juice Defender on mine, makes a huge difference for me, especially since I'm often in areas with little to no data signal. I am rooted. But I also have JD on my wife's unrooted S3 and it works great there, too.
