I've found that I really like KTweaker. I downclock my S3 when I'm at work, to about 800 mhz to save battery. I don't need more than that anyway. Then I crank it back to 1.8 GHz when I get home.

Doesn't the default power saving mode downclock the processor? I haven't actually needed to use my JuiceDefender or power saver modes in a while, but I've been "playing" with the phone considerably less now than I did the first couple of months.

Lol, probably. I completely forgot about that setting/feature. I've only had this phone since Friday :-P.g

Good choice. I just got one as well. Retired my HTC G2.



The stock bloatware is really getting on my nerves though, so I may root soon. I mean really, come on Samsung, non-removable bookmarks? I barely understand the need to install locked system apps, but at least I can semi-ignore them. The bookmark thing is just plain silly. And you can't even sort your own bookmarks ahead of their locked ones, so theirs are always at the top of the list, and there is like 9 of them. haha...sigh...anyways. Yeah, I'll probably root soon in attempt to remove the locked-in bloat =) I can't wait for CyanogenMod to release a stable for the S3.

Got a sweet thin case too, to aid in grip. S3 is slippery naked =)

I have a blue S3 myself and I love it. My mom has the Iphone 5 and it does not even compare.

You should consider getting the Nexus 4, since it may not have LTE, but specs all around are better.

If you still want the S3, it really isn't a bad choice though.

EDIT: Just realized you already bought it. You should consider returning it and getting a Nexus 4. tongue.gif

I never noticed the bookmark thing. I only use Chrome.
