    I gave mine a workout today since it was the first full day of playing with it. I downloaded several of my apps, watched video, gave it several hours of solid use. I'm happy with the battery. It didn't last as long as my bionic with extended battery but for some medium to heavy use, it did extremely well.

    I have my phone set to half brightness (I hate auto brightness) but all of the power-saving options are off.

    My battery seems to drain faster then I would like. Not devastating, but using the phone heavily for 5-10 minutes drains the battery 2-3% easily

    I have power save on, wi-fi off, GPS off, screen set to auto, and juice defender free version enabled

    I am probably over reacting as my battery says 4 hours and 30 minutes of usage and I am down to 89%. I did about 5-10 minutes of messing around this morning, and a few checks for about a minute or less. So the use was very light IMO.

    I have 45% stand-by usage and 30% screen usage, 8% Android OS, 5% device Idle, 4% Android System, and a few other minor usages like according to battery stats

    my last phone was the original droid. But that phone would last a whole day easily. Although Angry Birds for an hour would drain the Droid much faster. Haven't even tried that on this Galaxy S3 yet. On the Galaxy I have only done minor surfing and app browsing. Mostly I'm doing phone clean up and setup stuff to get it the way I like it.

    My battery seems to be fine.. Now at 6 hrs 16m and I'm only at 86%... With light to light moderate usage.

    I'll have to see what this thing can do if I ever decide to stream a long video.

    I am noticing this too, my battery seems to drain a lot with very short periods of use.

    I am kind of sick of the dim screen at this point too, I think I might just turn it up to full throttle and count on charging frequently.
