    I have had my s3 for about a week, got it from t mobile. The battery seems like its dying really fast. I have juice defender (balanced) on, power saving on, I turned off syncing, brightness is at 20-35%, Wifi is on at home, and I turned off background data for most of the apps I used. I am at 82% today with 8hr 50m on the battery. The cell standby says 49%. The screen is 26% but its only been on for 50 minutes. That was only for tweeting and looking at the news. Is this normal?

    82% remaining with 9 hours usage is good.

    Sometimes I think battery saving apps use more juice than they save. I had a battery saver app and I noticed my phone died faster than usual. Probably just me.

    I have only used it for 50 minutes. The rest of the time it is on standby.

    I have already taken all those steps except changing launchers or rooting. Because I like the default way.
