So my battery life isn't exactly where I would like it to be. I can usually get to about 7-8 pm with I need to charge the phone. I do play some games and stuff, but the same I did on my iPhone 4 (not much). I looked at the battery stuff, and Awake is on the entire time (is this bad?). Wifi is on nearly all of the time too.

Things I have looked at, and your input would be awesome (how much power it could save and what impacts it has):
1. The built in power saver mode. Leave it on at all times or is that a stupid idea?
2. Juice Defender. Worth it or no? Does it make anything work less?
3. Flashing a ROM? I am looking at KyanROM but open to other things.
4. Other, if you guys know some tricks that a noob like me doesn't.


Also, unrelated question. The Gmail app doesn't seem to be pushing mail anymore. Even when I open the app nothing happens until I hit the reload. What do I do to get it pushing? I'm open to using another app if it is advised.

settings > wifi > advanced > keep wifi on during sleep and set it to only when plugged in. But that will only save battery if youget a good signal usually.

Lots of people hate Juice Defender. I used it eons ago (literally a couple years ago), it really is aggressive.

Does anyone have an s3 that is a little brighter near the bottom with brighter whites and dimmer/bluer whites/grays as you move to the top (portrait)? I received a replacement today for this issue and the dammed replacement has the exact same defect. I'd this the norm with Samsung and amoled screen or does my luck just suck?

I had it set to off, but the only problem is that my phone isn't ever sleeping? I look in the battery and 99 percent of the time it is awake. Any ideas here?

I went in to get one the first day my 2 year contract ran out but held off seeing that there might be a quad core available since there is already one in the UK. Less is not more, I want the Quad core.

Mine doesn't have this

Do you have a North American model and what color is it, if you don't mind me asking?

1) I have mine on always. EDIT: I *had* mine on always when I was using a ROM with that option.. I can't find it anywhere on this one soo. tongue.gif
2) Sounds pretty stupid and a waste IMO
3) A ROM is your best bet to achieving better battery life. There are some built around achieving the best battery life possible.
4) Make sure you have the gmail sync setting turned on, otherwise it won't do anything.

I also always keep my WiFi AND GPS on. I get 10hr+ battery life everyday. Sometimes up to 20hr+ if I don't use it a ton.

Thanks man! I changed to power saver, and the battery has barely been draining. Huge difference there, I just didn't know if it was fine to leave it on all the time.

Also, apparently the latest Gmail update broke the push notifications and update (lots of reviews saying that now).

And I will be doing a ROM as soon as possible smile.gif
