    Samsung Galaxy S3 Battery issues

    Alright so lately I've been having low battery life and I have to charge at least once a day before sleep.
    I have Juice Defender on (although Idk if it works with my phone not being rooted) it is at 1.37x
    I have Advanced Task Killer which auto kills ever 30 minutes (Excluding Juice Defender)
    I have the standard battery.
    I am constantly sweeping my apps as well.
    So I am having trouble figuring out why my battery life is crap. Any suggestions/tips?

    Remove the task killer. That drains your battery

    alright. I uninstalled it with 100% Battery Life so if I'll see if it worked. Also I always see unnecessary apps up. I use Go GO Launcher so I can sweep apps on that, but I always see random games up that I haven't played for at least a day. I always close them properly so idk.

    Task killers have always been misused. Don't use em. As for go launcher, its a home replacement so its constantly running.

    Your problem might be that your battery meter isn't properly set..

    What I want you to do. The next time your battery is charged completely. Run your phone until it get at least to 5% but try to run it down completely. Then charge it while the phone is off until it is already up to 100%.

    Then do it once more and that should reset your meter.

    Also may I ask, are you rooted?

    I'll do that this time because when I woke up it was fully charged. It also charges pretty fast. Like at lets say 25-30% it takes an hour to 2 hours max. to get to 100%. I am not rooted.

    I have been thinking about rooting it I just don't want to do the back ups and pay money. Right now my battery life is at about 45%-50% and I have played with my phone for maybe an hour at most today.
