Toggling the network from auto mode(3g/2g) to use 2g only mode will almost double your battery life :)

By using an extended battery, such as the Zero Lemon, you can greatly improve the time between charges. I have one for my Galaxy Note 3, and even with the large screen I charge it every 5 or 6 days (once it gets to 30%). Now admittedly I don't fiddle with my phone constantly, but I do a lot of web browsing with it and talk on it each day. At the level of use I have, I'm easily getting 3 times more battery life.

It's the same with the Galaxy S III. Compare the standard 2100 mAh battery that comes with the phone with the 7000 mAh extended battery, and it's a no-brainer. They are more than worth the price (I see one you can get through Amazon for $42, and that includes the protective case). Once you have experienced going several days between charges you won't want to go back to trying to get through the day on a single charge. I was thinking about upgrading to the newest Galaxy Note phone (or the new Galaxy S phone), but when I saw that the new ones do not have removable batteries that was a deal breaker. There is no new bell or whistle that would cause me to give up the ability to have an extended battery.
