Only one thing I miss... I had 2-3 day battery life on the ****Phone, but my S3 is hardly giving me a whole day. I put my phone in my pocket at 80% at 7 AM this morning. Between 7 AM and noon, I used the phone for TWO messages on hangouts and to check the time about a dozen times. Down to 60% at noon. Then went for a long car drive and checked my phone and sent another 2-3 messages and was down to 50% battery life. Took about 20 pictures and 10 seconds of video and put it back in my pocket. Around 4PM, battery is at 15%.
So all in all, 2 hangout messages, 5 texts, 10 pictures, 10 seconds of video, and 8 hours of idling took around 70% of my battery.
I'm considering grabbing an Incipio Offgrid battery case (had one for my ****Phone that brought it up to a week of battery life) but still that will probably not be doubling my battery life.
Is there any specific ROM you can suggest that I should use to get very good battery life?
I've been using AOSP/Stock/CM ROM's on all my Android phones for about a year and it's getting old, for that sole fact I actually am liking TouchWiz better, but I'm open to options. I mostly use my phone to text and browse the internet/reddit, not a whole lot of gaming or video watching.
