    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!

    haha Fm2012? How do you like it on the phone? I have the game for my pc and it takes up a lot of ram. So I am sure it drains the crap out of the phone huh?

    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. :rolleyes:

    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. :smokingsomb:

    Android system: 55%!

    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. :D
