Huh? 2100 mAh? A 4.8 HD screen with a 1.4 QUAD CORE PROCESSOR running 4G LTE...
If this is a crap battery then what do you think about the HTC One X? At least this one is removable.
Funny I thought I battery was one of the S3's strong points.
The S4 is extremely efficient, and I'm pretty confident in guessing the 4412 will use less battery than any dual core phone not sporting an S4.
It is the highest capacity battery in any phone except the razr maxx.
I was just thinkin' that myself!
and the beautiful thing about a removable battery is...you can get an extended battery if the original is not enough.
i would bet a couple of months after the S3 goes on sale, there will be a few options of extended batteries available. the galaxy note has a ton of extended batteries from 2,500 mAh to 5,200 mAh
i'm sure it will be similar for the S3
It won't be running quad core lte. US versions with lte will have s4 most likely which is pretty good on battery. Not to mention 2100 mah is pretty large battery to fit in a case that thin.
It's ok, better than when they delivered the SII with 1650, I think this will last slightly longer at doing what it does than the SII did with the 1650.
Extended battery will come out though (SII got a 2000mAh one), I only use my 1650 SII battery in the evenings in front of the fire because I like to save the big boy for the daylight hours.
At least they cannot pull a razr to razt maxx deal in two months. Id like 3000, and i can have it when the high capacity ones come out.
for what its worth, those of you with extended batteries probably aren't as well off as you think.
BatteryBoss Calls Out False Capacity Claims!
The new processor is 30% more power efficient and the pentile is also more efficient (as it has a third fewer pixels than RGB screens). Although I know the increase in resolution will counter that.
I would be surprised if it sucks battery much faster than the S2. Imagine the S2 with a 2100mAh battery..would be awesome.
wow very interesting. i think i'm going to get my multimeter and check out my batteries. although i dont have any extended batteries but still. something to keep in mind when buying aftermarket batts.
Yeah i actually recently was refunded $$ for fals capacity claims on batteries for my note 2500mah btw)
I am a heavy user...spare batteries are not an issue with me. it would be awesome if there were a device that had sufficient battery to meet my needs but i gave up on that 5 or 6 phones ago
I want those carbon Nanotube batteries to enter mass production already
I know right. 2100 mah is crap. It should be 4500 mah. I mean, that's the standard nowadays isn't it?
People know that Samsung offer official extended batteries right? I'd only ever buy an official one.
I was asking if the Razr Maxx would suit your battery needs.
That thing is capable of powering a standard laptop for 3 - 5 hours.
I'm just glad that the battery is removable + high capacity.
The backplate for this phone is over the whole back right? So who cares what battery it comes with? Get a nice big battery with a backplate for it and no one will ever know you are running an extended battery. the phone can still be kept fairly thin and won't have that hideous hump that most phones get with extended batteries. So long as there's no hump on the back of the phone I don't mind it coming with a lower capacity battery at stock. Though HTC and Samsung do need to find a way to make a phone comparable to the Razr MAXX when it comes to battery capacity combined with being thin.
Why is this thread posted in the first place?
HTC X - Standard battery, Li-Po 1800 mAh
IPhone 4S - Li-Po 1432 mAh
At Li-Ion 2100 mAh, it's consider one of the best in market isn't it? Plus it's believed that Quad core has an improved efficiency in battery management!
I cant see what do you mean by 'poor', unless you are coming from Iron Man 2 Technology Era!
My SGs3 battery life is awesome. I am very pleased.
Same here, can't fault it at all, after coming from a Desire HD not having to charge my phone daily is a revelation!
Coming from the GNexus this battery is hands down the best. I was just bragging yesterday about it. 1d 11h 30m with 26% battery life left. You can't beat that. Little usage but either way very impressive.
I think this was a drive-by thread, since the comparison to other devices was not brought up. Case in point, the OP has not replied and the post served it's drive-by purpose.
