    I downloaded a app called PHONE INFO it allows you to turn of your 4g and only use 3g .It might help I'm coming from a bioinc with extended battery I feel your pain.

    Galaxy Nexus batteries will NOT work in the S3. They aren't the same physical size.

    I got over 13 hours today and am still at 40%. My use was on the lighter side tho... Some emails, texts, phone calls, a bit of browsing and fb.

    For me this seems completely use dependent. Seems like I can kill the phone within hours of internet browsing but I can make it last all day if I barely use the phone. I feel like the battery capacity should be double and the charging time half of what it is.

    I was coming from a 2 year old droid X, and it seemed like my X lasted longer. Although I think the inability to turn off 4G is part of the problem.

    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.

    The other cool thing is it took under 4 hours to get a full charge!

    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.

    the GSM nexus battery will fit but will you guys be using the phone without a back cover because the extended def will not fit the current back

    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.
