    Anybody have this phone? I just got it and it's the only Sprint phone that really had any good reviews...so far so good, but the one thing I really wondered was how the battery life is. Anybody?

    It's a pretty awesome phone. I can't testify to battery life since I've only played around with one, though.

    I have the galaxy SIII through Sprint. I absolutely adore it.

    I have the galaxy Slll also, and I'm about to upgrade to the Slll in a few weeks. Don't know much about the evo tho.

    I've never had battery issues with any phones, but I find that if you keep certain services on all the time (like wifi, blutooth, and updates), it wastes more batteries. I have the Samsung Galaxy Europa i5500 (european unlocked version w/ built in wifi) -- battery life is awesome and I live on my phone.

    Yeah, it seems like it'll last awhile, but as soon as I get on the internet then its gone. I've been turning off my data when I don't need it so its not constantly checking mail or facebook or whatever.

    yeah my mom got the same phone I did but complained of a short battery life...it's because she kept the wifi and blutooth on all day. With the rechargeable batteries now a days, it's safe to charge a batter that hasn't been fully discharged. Back then, if you charged a batter before it was fully discharged, you shorten the life.

    It's funny cuz my hubby at one point also had the same phone as I did (years ago, before smart phones). Yet his phone would always die fast lol

    GPS is another big battery killer, too. I never turn mine on unless I'm actually using Maps.

    I have the Galaxy SIII, going to upgrade to either the S IV, or the Note, not sure which one yet.

    I have a GIII and the battery is good. From time to time, I install some application which causes my battery to drain worse but then I just remove it if its not something super important.

    Yeah, I plug it in when I'm in my truck or home if I can to help. Good thing they don't shorten like they used to.

    P.S. If you try a game for free (like I do before I actually buy it) then you can turn your data off and whoila! No ads!
