Default S III Battery use

Now that you have your Samsung Galaxy S III device, share your battery use...

Have you noticed great, good or just okay battery life?

Post images, too

Mine (AT&T) has just been charged to 100%, so I guess we'll see how well it does tomorrow...

Just got mine about five hours ago so it's hard to say. Battery was about 50-60% when I first turned it on and it fell to about 30% by the time I plugged it in about half an hour ago. I suspect this is because 4G/LTE is on but I can't find a way to turn it off!

Rather weird, but I literally just took my device off the charger. It was at 100%, then I walked from upstairs to downstairs, it took me less than a minute

Wait for it...

My battery is now 98%! Seriously, I've not done anything on the device yet.

I'll monitor it for now, and if it is still crap later today, I'll have to wipe and reload it. Odd though, no? I've not installed anything major, along with a few keyboard apps. I wonder if they would cause an issue?

The first day I got at least 14 hours of battery life, with good use of it too.

I am experiencing about the same battery life as my iPhone 4S and EVO LTE. For my normal daily use I will get about a full day out of it and charge at night.

Yeah, I put a brand-new battery in my Droid X, and it dropps to 99% as soon as I unplug it, no worry. I was a little worried about how battery life would be on the GSIII when I saw how thin it was, but when I saw they somehow stuck a 2100 mAh battery in there, my worries stopped. Stock on my DX was 1550, and I upgraded to an 1800, so hopefully with my useage, I'll easily get a full day out of my upcoming GSIII like I currently do with my slowly dying DX! Good to see people are getting good life from them here, though.


...stupid Verizon, making us wait like this!

What do you mean never on the web? Everything is updateing as normal but usually I don't surf on web because at home I use my laptop and at work my pc. I only read my rss, listen podcasts, read few forums. If I need something fast from web and I don't have my computer near me I use my phone.

Sorry, no screen capture, but I got 15:11 on my first full day of usage, running the phone until it shut down. Today, I'm at 10:48 with 35% remaining. I have never gotten such good battery life with any phone. And this is with Wifi and GPS always on.

This phone does better with everything turned on than my Atrix did with Juice Defender running. I'm very impressed.

You guys both seem to be on pace for 24 hours, including 4-5 hours screen time. I can live with that.

I am getting about 3 times better battery life than I was with my original EVO 4G with the slim extended battery. Amazing I can go a whole day without charging

Thanks for posting your pics.

As I've read in some other threads, the "Cell Standby" time is fairly high, not sure if it's a bug or something that has to do with the new SOC.

Just as reference, my Maxx's cell standby is 3%.

FYI...not here to troll, I have one on pre-order.

The 2100 mAh battery may be smaller, but Samsung bundle power saving technology into it. I bet its comparable.

I feel the same way but had to burn my last upgrade so I went with the S3. I didn't really want to have two of the same phones but I could exchange it for a Droid Incredible 4G and give that to my wife and take back my Maxx. With ICS just around the corner it might just be worth keeping. That Maxx battery sure does spoil a person!

It's quite decent. It is obviously not a patch on the PC version and it does drain the battery a fair bit but it is addictive in the way only FM can be so I like playing it
I will try and post a few screenshots of it later so you can get an idea of what it is like

So it looks like I can reasonably expect my SGS3 to last on LTE about as long as my LG Spectrum on 3G. Awesome! That's what I was hoping.

Well I just did a bit of browsing then played about 30 minutes of Angry Birds in a pub (hic) and it only knocked about 10% off the battery. With my S2 that would have been more like 25% I think.

My battery life is crap. Maybe its that cell standby issue. I hardly can make it through the day with no more usage than few calls. I carry my charger with me, its worse than my HTC Sensation.

I really hope that Samsung will come up with update for this, I'm disappointed.

silly question, but is it okay to leave the phone with the charger overnight? cos when its fully charge the phone says to unplug the charger.

thanks

It's ok. Nothing happens with your battery or phone. I guess most of us do that. Including me.

So is it safe to say that I will get a full day of moderate to heavy use? some of these numbers say yes, but others say no way......

Just thought I'd share what the S3 can do with light usage. My last couple days were mostly texting sms & mms, little wifi and several app updates. I think there was a phone call or two as well. Anyways, didn't use it much and I am pretty damn happy with the standby time. I'm positive I could have hit 3 days but I want to get a full charge now that Saturdays here. Oh, and I was also sporting a live wallpaper as well. Just showing what light usage can yield, not throwing it in anyone's face.
