    I wouldn't bother. Since ICS and now Jelly Bean, Android is very efficient. It has been proven many times that task killers like Juice defender just introduces issues with little benefit. I used it on older phones like the TBOLT and Razr, it worked wonders, but once Razr updated to ICS it was a mess. It just didn't work smoothly and I could never figure out if it was juice defender or the phone. I didn't even bother for the S3. I would just turn on power saving and keep a spare $9 battery in your pocket just in case.

    I use juice defender and it has helped me a lot. With Jelly Bean and Juice Defender, I no longer need the power saving function on.

    I enable Juice Defender when I walk into work. I get terrible reception in the building. Saves a ton of battery.

    Yeah JD is actually pretty good for saving battery in poor reception areas, makes all the difference for me.

    I also was a big fan of Juice Defender, but didn't use it once I traded the Thunderbolt for the S3. I get very good battery on the S3 so it hasn't even been something I've thought about doing in recent months. I don't think it will hurt but not sure how effective it would be.
