    Hey guys i just got my first galaxy 3 SGH-I747

    1.

    I want to buy another battery or 2 to have as a backup so i can charge one while the other charge and so i can have a backup encase my phone dies while im out and about. I found some on ebay like 2 for $10 - $15
    but i know nothing about batteries and don't know what to get. So could someone point me to some on ebay?

    2.

    Whats are some default apps i can disable that would help safe battery life
    if any of these will help?

    1 look for batterys with the same kinda mA/h rating as the samsung one (think its 2300(?)) Or 1200?... my case is too tight to check lol) And if youre ever gona use s-beam/NFC then make sure it has the NFC chip inside.
    2 not sure, theres lists of what can be safely disabled so hopefully someone can link one. Disable s-voice if youre not gona use it... all the s-crap actually. Maps uses power so disable that if u dont use it. Dont disable anythng you arent sure of.. innocent looking apps are sometimes relied on by others.
    3 yeah the phone charges at a fraction of the speed when you use a data cable plugged into the pc. You can buy charge-only ones that will charge faster :thumbup:

    Welcome to the s3 btw :):beer:

    Stock is 2100, but I'd suggest getting the anker 2200.

    Great brand and will still fit in the stock housing
