    Same, battery has also been improving. GPS was the biggest drain, so I don't know if that's just my phone or everyones, but as soon as I turned GPS off only when I need it, the battery has improved like 70%. Never had to do this on previous phones, but meh, weather is still updated accurately, so as long as I have that I can leave it off till I need directions.

    Love this GS3!!!

    For me the battery life sucks. I can lose 20 percent in less than a half hour of browsing, email, and Facebook/Twitter.

    Have to be near a charger at all times. Not quite RAZR level bad, but it's close

    So you're definitely suffering from one of the many potential battery drainers. Check out my thread 1 week in, one random problem...battery. . A few suggestions posted, and like I said mine was an issue with GPS. So I can assure you that your battery life is lower than normal. In that same amount of time/usage, I'll probably lose about 5-10%.

    Now the trick will be finding out what it is. Gsam helps, but it'll still take some investigating...

    Looks like I will have to do the same thing. My battery went from 100% when I woke up to 29% by the time I got to work 3 hours later.

    There shouldn't be any problems. All versions of the S3 use the same battery.

    Yeah I'd say as long as it fits it should work no problem. Do let us know how it goes though.
