    My Battery flat out stunk the first few days of owning the S3, then after about 6 days it started to perform pretty well and last a good amount of time. But as of now my phone is just randomly losing power out of nowhere, especially while on wifi. I've lost 6% in the last 10 minutes? I can basically just watch my battery meter run down.

    And the dredded stand by time drain is rearing its ugly head again?

    Anyone seeing anything like this?

    What do your battery stats say is killing your battery?

    Something that seemed to help mine is to turn off mobile data while on wifi.

    I've begun turning mobile data off while using wifi. The battery has drained quicker each time I've left it on. It's as if part of the phone shuts off the signal for data while another is having the phone search for a mobile connection.

    Can you take screenshots of your battery stats for Android OS and Android System and post them here?
