Make sure your S3 is updated to the newest available versionoof Android as it made a fairly big difference in the battery life if the device.

My android has the latest update, and I updated after having the battery issues and it did nothing to correct it.

The phone is only 5 months old. I know I can take it in to get fixed under warranty but I really don't want to lose my phone for a week if I don't have to.

I recently did a hard reset on the phone since Samsung advised me that it would fix any software issues and it did nothing. I think it may have made the issue worse. I royally pissed off since both of my samsung devices (S2x and S3) have had software issues.

I've had mine for almost 5 months and I am having issues with my battery.
