My camera works great. Not sure what the problem is.
Engadget, The Verge - and they're not impressed with the battery life. Especially The Verge. They said the battery life is "terrible." Ha, ha.
They certainly put the phone through more of a stress test than most people will during the course of a normal day, but if you're medium to heavy user, I'd expect to be looking for a charger sometime in the afternoon.
I've found the battery life on the S3 to be exceptional. I came from the MAXX, and while that phone certainly would last longer, I really haven't missed it. That's especially the case because the S3 has a removable battery. I completely agree about not wanting the phone to be at 20% before you the evening since you don't know what will come up, so that's why I pop in a spare fully charged battery and then hit the town!
