I've had my S3 for about a week now and I find myself having to charge my battery at the end of each day. Any tips to maximize battery life other than decreasing the brightness and enabling the power saving profile. I am on the stock ROM as well, not sure if I should flash it to a custom ROM?

Thanks

Mine lasts for 2+ days, just make sure you keep LTE off whenever you aren't using it.

I also found that any battery life apps just lower the battery life.

I think one of these days I should go back to AOSP and try it.

Battery life sucks compared to TW though.

For me, it was the complete opposite. With TW I was usually ending the day around 10 percent battery. With Task650s AOKP rom and KT's kernel, I can usually finish a day no lower than 50 percent. Not even kidding.

Just every once in a while close apps you aren't using. Hold the menu button to bring up the open apps. Swipe them left or right to close, and scroll up and down to see them all.

My friends with the Samsung Galaxy S3 4G LTE version have overwhelmingly said that the battery life is actually great considering they turn on 4G LTE at least once a day. Don't know about other ROMs though.

Mine gets warm on the bottom with heavy usage. Not sure if this is normal though. I just assumed it was.
