    Battery dying QUICK!

    Hello all. I recently got my new S3 and the first week was awesome! Now over the past couple of days I've noticed my phone is dying overnight!!! HELP!

    My battery on the phone says:

    Android System 39%
    Cell Standby 26%

    I downloaded CPU Spy and I get:

    384 MHz 92%
    Deep sleep 0%

    Can anyone please help me? When I'm home and at work I'm connected to wifi.

    Thank you in advance =)

    Are all GPS services turned on? Any recent apps?

    From the dropdown menu: GPS is off, sync is off. 1 or 2 recent apps but they do not show when I look to see what's draining the battery

    Sorry to state the obvious but it doesn't hurt, have you tried a good ol' fashion battery pull?

    Well if you haven't already, try uninstalling those 1 or 2 apps. Definitely sounds like somethings running in the background here...


    Edit : Also download GSam Battery Monitor from the market, let it run for a day or so, and get a second opinion on any potential rogue apps.

    Possible fix: First take the battery out of the phone for about 10 seconds. Then with the battery out plug the phone up, wait a few seconds, and put the battery in and immediately press power. Should be as good as new.
