A recent battery test that was conducted recently on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the results were notable.
According to reports the battery of the Samsung Galaxy S3 only went down to around sixty percent even as it was used in streaming HD videos for three and a half hours over a Wi-Fi connection. It should be noted that the brightness of the screen was set to fifty percent during the test on the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Despite this brightness setting, the huge display of the device will still offer a notable image for users and it may be possible for the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S3 to be better if the brightness level is not set at full.
The battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is reportedly better compared to the Samsung Galaxy S2, the LG Optimus 2X and HTC Incredible S when the Antutu battery benchmark test was used.
The fact that the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a better battery life compared to its predecessor is good news for industry watchers since one of the issues that faced the Samsung Galaxy S2 was its battery life due to the Super AMOLED Plus display and its dual-core processor.
For users who may want to increase their usage of the Samsung Galaxy S3, they can opt to reduce the brightness level of the device and keep the wireless network off including the 3G connection when it is not being used. Although this will reduce some of the capabilities of the device, users will still be able to use the device particularly due to the presence of the Android widgets on the Samsung Galaxy S3.
In comparison to the HTC One X, which is considered as the main rival to the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Samsung smartphone offered a better battery life after streaming videos for over three hours using a Wi-Fi connection.
