A couple of days back I got a software update for my S3 and I am under the impression that since then my phone's battery life has been significantly reduced. Anyone has had a similar experience or is this just me?
I honestly dunno as I use a different battery, but could it be possible you've been doing incorrect things?
Have you tried restarting the phone? Have heard people mention that, but not sure if it's just a placebo effect.
Right now I think my phone is fine. I suspect the reason for the battery dying so fast on me was because the internet connection I used to download the update was slow so the phone spent a rather large amount of time downloading it.
What service provider are you with?
The update kinda sucks because I can't do screenshot any more.
It has nothing to do with service provider, I was talking about downloading the update with wifi. My provider is CLARO though, those guys are basically everywhere in south and central america.
I was wondering if every service provider in America rolled out an update though. Looks like America is or was the only country to not get Jellybean update for SGS3.
Because even my battery isn't getting recharged in time like it usually used to.
Problem with most smartphones: lack of dual sim ... And I don't want to have two phones on me (work + private).
Doesn't the S3 somehow deal with that issue? I haven't actually seen that at work however if I do recall the S3 commercials do seem to imply the S3 can somehow at least make that problem less complicated.
Well, the easy and practical solution for that is to take care of your phone lol. A case is a decent alternative however at a personal level I despise that alternative as it implies making my phone, for whose thinness I paid some money, thicker (and by extension less comfortable in my pocket). Or maybe you need larger pockets ?
Your SGS3 will never be as thick as mine.
And I really hope it stays that way
Only if you don't get the bigger but better battery.
