travel with phone GPS on whole day
I've got my galaxy S3 for a while. For the first couple of months, its battery life was not bad…but now my phone battery died much faster than before. Each time I went out morning by bike and want to use GPS at dusk but the battery was completely dead and the phone was off.
Once i unplug my phone at 7a.m. and tt 9 a.m. ride to a near town for around 4.5 hours with low brightness and GPS on the whole time.
Reached the city at 11:40. Phone is only at about 40%. Usually my GPS on the most time cuz I need to find routes from street, town, city or landmark to my destination.
I notice not much apps might take up high usage, so I think it is because of my regularly usage on GPS…Since carrying an extra battery or swapping to a bulky battery is acceptable for me so recently I began using extended battery to increase battery life and now I rely to a MPJ extra battery and a battery pack.
Wandering if I am the only one pick up extended battery/battery pack due to heavy use of GPS, or not? ;-)
