The Samsung Galaxy S3 (S III) smartphone has been as big a hit as many expected since its release and is still selling in huge numbers. Today we have news on a reported battery life issue with the Galaxy S3 and it seems that if you’re one of the device owners suffering from this problem then we could have details of a simple fix for you.
Earlier this month we told how some owners of the white Galaxy S3 had noticed some cracks on the back covers of their phones and it now appears that other customers have had problems with the Galaxy S3’s battery life. Samsung has responded by saying it will be issuing an update that should fix for the problems but it seems that a simple fix may already be available. The fix does not require a software update or rooting, which will please many readers, but be aware that it may not work for all of you.
It’s at least worth a try though and as it’s very simple you may feel you have nothing to lose by giving it a whirl if battery drainage has been bothering you on your Galaxy S3. Gotta Be Mobile reports that a reader tipped them off about the fix so if you want to try it out, read on. From the Settings page of your Galaxy S3 you need to then head to Wi-Fi and select Advanced. You should then see some text that reads “Connect to Wi-Fi while asleep” and need to change that to Never. Apparently the person who supplied this easy fix said that it has made a major difference to his GS3 battery life.
Although this has come from a user of the Galaxy S3 international version we can’t imagine why it wouldn’t also work for those in the U.S. too. We’re really interested to hear if this simple fix works while Samsung is working on an update? If you are having battery life issues with your Galaxy S3 and try this out then we’d appreciate you sharing with our readers if it worked or not by sending your comments to us.
