Rumors of fix for battery performance related problems.
If you are the proud owner of the Samsung Galaxy S3, you are proud of the phone. But the battery life could be better than it currently stands. If you can get a full work day of usage on the phone before you have to drop it in a charger, you are happy. But should you be? Shouldn’t we all be expecting better performance from our phones given that this is Samsung’s flagship phone? I believe that having an all day charge is more appropriate even though the battery is consumed faster with 4G LTE. This is really not expecting too much for owners of this great phone.
It does appear that help may be on the way. Rumors about the coming Jelly Bean update here in the US hold promise. In Canada, the Jelly Bean update is coming soon and with it, we here in the US can expect to see it soon as well. Though Verizon tends to slow things down a lot. There are reports that Jelly Bean improves battery life for the Galaxy S3 and that is great news. There have been no official details from Samsung regarding battery improvement. All of these reports are posts on forums and have not been verified. As a result, we have to consider these rumors especially since the US is only seeing leaked versions of Jelly Bean and not the official release.
iPhone 4S users have been complaining for a long time about battery life and various updates from Apple have handled some issues, but not all. The improvement of battery life is addressed via a software update and as such, there is hope we can all see improved battery life. We just do not know whether Jelly Bean will improve battery life or by how much.
If you want to be sure about improving your battery life, mophie which currently has a battery pack to extend the iPhone, is a product that is worth your consideration. They are now working on one to fit the Galaxy S3. This case can potentially double the life of the battery between charges. If they are going to provide a customized case specifically for the Galaxy S3, then this becomes the best option to achieve battery life with an all day charge.
