    Hi I just got my s3 and I noticed that the battery is drainjng realy quick (when I'm surfing the web and also when its idle). The battery drains >7% when its idle. I have power saving mode on, brightness to the lowest level, disabled sync and such. Is there something wrong with the battery?

    And one more thing- the battery percentage is currently 70% but when I click on battery, it says 2 hrs and 17 mins on battery. How is this possible??

    How long does your battery last before you have to charge it. Surfing the web and the screen can be a big battery drain. If you can post a screen shot of your battery stats after it has run for 6 to 8 hours some one may be able to help narrow some things down.
