Battery working on Galaxy S3,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had galaxy S3 for only a few weeks then all of a sudden, the battery was running out about 25% per hour -- really bad. Also back of phone getting warm to touch in use and sometimes on charge. I searched online to see what could be up -- removed any recent app's I'd loaded, but to no avail -- only thing I can really put it down to was a car charger I'd bought and used a couple of times around the time the battery life was drastically reduced - if related, somehow that car charger has messed the Samsung battery up!
So, after reading reviews on the Anker battery, soem mixed, I sent for one -- so pleased with this battery. Doesn't get warm now in use, charges quick and runs like the phone did before, maybe a bit better. I run with WiFi enabled all the time, 3G, playing music using bluetooth to my Sony Ericsson headphone adapter.... and if I go to bed and it's on less than 25% battery I still get woken up with the alarm, though the battery may have dropped to 15%..... just so much better.
I navigated to Bracknel from Northampton last week and then back later tha day, so was on GPS for at least 3 hours, a few calls on the way also.... and all on battery.
Suffice to say, I ditched the car charger - bought another with a 2.1A output to USB and using the Samsung USB cable.
Maybe not using the phone it'd stay on battery for well over a day but that's difficult with the S3 -- have work email, personal email, music, can't help but use it. But now I'm not having to worry not having it on charge..... just may need to plug in once a day for a charge or top up.
Others maybe prone to running a battery test - time for drain, etc... I'm not doing that as I'm just too happy with this Anker replacmeent.
The fact the Samsung battery, for whatever reason, is in a condition that means it's probably half the capacity of this replacement -- probably less for using.... I'll contact Vodafone and ask about returning the battery.
