I'm guessing most of those screenshots are limited screen on time or extended batteries? The best I can typically do is 16h+ with about 3.5 hours screen on time.
I just installed Juice Defender Ultimate and I am waiting to see if that makes any difference.

For me if the tweak or method limits the phone's functionality then I won't do it. I bought a, "Smartphone" for it to be a Smartphone, not a brick I carry in my pocket until I turn it on.

I had pretty good success with Juice Defender Ultimate on my Epic, but I wanted to try the SGS3 with nothing to get a baseline on whether it actually offered improvement. I will report back.

Does Juice Defender do anything other than handle your radios for you? Because I've always manually toggled data, I don't even want it on as often as I turn my screen on. I don;t need data to check the time, text or use the calculator.
