Ask any power using smartphone owner what he would like to see improved on his or her handset, and the first answer will usually be battery life; now that city streets are filled with people moving forward with their head down, either entranced by a YouTube video, a game of Candy Crunch or looking at Instagram, longer battery life is vital to life as we now know it...

I wonder why there is not much innovation in battery department. Pretty much all other fields evolving very fast.
its time for something new innovation on battery like self recharging battery or something like that. These law life battery really making me sick
i really hate to see "battery critically law" or "battery 15% please plug in your device"

there has been little to no innovation in batteries since the last 8 or so years. every now and then PA posts an article about some university or group of scientist stating to have made some advancement in battery technology but still can't seem to see it implemented in smartphones

I got a US GS3 non rooted screen at half bright and I used it and it drained my battery fast, all it did was turn on my power save mode and cycled when my apps would call out. Checked battery settings and DOWNLOAD was using over 70% (I.e. media and messenger apps) didn't do that before I installed it and all I got calling out is email and G+, give you an idea after power on from full charge and within an hour of non use I checked it at 72% battery, 3 hours later of non use it was at 49%??? I uninstalled it hoping I didn't damage something. Didn't work for me and I didn't let it finish the 3 day trial either, not worth it!!
Now that I uninstalled it and another hour later I checked battery settings again and DOWNLOAD is now back down to 18%. Weeird!

What you could try (a friend of mine did) is turn of the Google location service in Now and Maps. (you still be able to use maps)
They seemed to be the biggest battery drainers.
And install GreenPower (premium) from the playstore.
This helps me to save extra on my Note.
I got quite some apps running but my battery holds a whole day with intensive i-net and gmail usage.
