    Just saw some videos on YouTube and are ppl really getting 12 to 15 hours out this phone? Is the stock battery really that good or should I just get the extended battery out the way now

    I'm easily getting getting 15+ hours on my phone. I'm at 67% right now with 13 hours on. Only 1.5 hours of screen on time though. Obviously it depends how much you're using your phone but I've not needed an extended battery whatsoever with this thing.

    Edit: I'm also rooted and running CleanRom2.1 so that might be making a difference. Lol

    I bought a second battery and a battery charger. While one battery is in the phone the other one is charging. I simply switch them when one runs down.

    With moderate use wife and I can get 12 hrs out of our GSIII's. Way longer life than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

    These are a couple of mine. Not super heavy use on these but more than enough. On a normal day I'm unplugged 15 hours and go to bed with anywhere from 30 to 60 percent depending on the usage. Battery life is great.

    Yea I'm not sure I use my phone very heavy. The screen is always on texting, fb etc. It would be nice to have a phone that keeps up with me. Also for 8 bucks on eBay I could get a 4500 mah extended battery. Seems like a pretty good deal and would not need two batteries.

    Regular battery... I'm averaging 26 hours with "moderate" (for me) use.

    Ever since I turned the Power Save option on, I get great battery life. At this point, I only charge it once a day, in the mornings when I get ready. It's usually at 50% when I go to bed. I don't go online a ton, but will occasionally stream music and use the Kindle app on it frequently throughout the day.

    For an average user the battery should be fine, though I'd love to get a "slim" extended battery for my Dad if they ever made one. He's on the road all day, talks a TON, and once in a while has felt a little battery crunch (yes, there are many ways around it with spare battery, battery charge packs, care charger, etc, but it would still just be nice to have the extended battery and not have to take the extra precautions. That said, really glad we have a phone that DOES let us swap out our batteries if we so desire :))

    I got the free version of Juice Defender and it doubled my battery life.
