    My wife and I just bought s3s a couple days ago. I am getting 15 or so hours to a charge, she gets about 6. Only difference is she is on at&t and I'm with Verizon. Thought that her usage seemed off with the android system using so much battery. Any ideas?

    I think by resolution he means brightness, the biggest battery drainer, which can be adjusted in settings or with various apps (I use Lux, which has a slight learning curve, but worked wonders for my battery). Never heard of standby being something you can adjust?

    The biggest problem I had with my S3, and possibly the main problem overall, was battery life. It SHOULD be amazing. But some phones don't seem to process that power as well. Unfortunately only a replacement phone seemed to truly fix it. Turning off 2/3 GPS helped, but I knew that was only a short term solution. But now I get amazing battery life again.

    I recommended this on another thread. There's an app called watchdog lite which tracks what's using your phones cpu/ram/batt. Theres others but this one is simple.

    Try it and see if maybe it's an app misbehaving or process....
