    My galaxy s3 won't stay charged for more than about four hours at a time. I'm sorry I can't attach a screenshot from my phone. It says my battery life is 3 mins and that my screen is using 68% of the battery, but I have it set on the lowest brightness and on auto brightness.

    I recently did the upgrade, restarted, cleared my cache, and restarted again but this has been a problem for a while. I have also downloaded Battery Defender and it isn't helping.

    Any tips or advice would be great! I hate always looking for a place to plug in my phone.

    Welcome to the forum

    Without any added apps, that could be causing problems, I would say try pulling the battery for >minute and see if that makes a difference.

    This battery defender, was it installed to try to solve the problem or before it started?
