Samsung Galaxy S3 Battery is draining quickly – solution

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most popular smartphones that were on the market, as it has a nice design and a fast processor. However, it may happen after some time of use that the battery runs down quickly. Possible scenario is for example that overnight half of the battery power is consumed or that the battery is empty within a few hours using an app. If this is the case and you have not identified a defect of the battery with the following procedures, then we would like to show you a way how to solve the problem with the Samsung Galaxy S3 battery.

For this purpose, you must perform on the Samsung Galaxy S3 a so-called Wipe cache partition. This procedure deletes temporary system files that are no longer needed.These files usually leads to the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S3 Battery runs down quickly. By performing a wipe cache partition NO personal data such as images, videos, music, news, etc. will be erased. This method is therefore very safe and brings in most cases a very good success for reducing the battery drain.

The Wipe cache partition works on the Samsung Galaxy S3 as follows:

Switch off your Samsung Galaxy S3 off by pressing on the power on/ off button. Wait until the device is completly turned off. Now you have to press the following keys to turn on the device again:

  • Power On / Off
  • Volume up
  • Home button

If the Samsung Galaxy S3 vibrates once, release the power on/ off button, but keep the other two keys from the key combination pressed until a menu appears on the display.

Now mark the entry "Wipe cache partition" with the volume down key. With the power on/ off button the entry is selected and the process is started. This usually takes only a few seconds. Then the previously displayed menu appears again. Now select the first entry with "Reboot system now" and run the command again with pressing the power button the power button. Your Samsung Galaxy S3 will now reboot.

The battery draining of your Samsung Galaxy S3 should now be reduced and you do not need to recharge the device so frequently.

If this does not help, then you may have to buy a new battery. Our recommendoation: Anker 2 x 2200mAh Replacement Li-ion Batteries for Samsung Galaxy S3, with Anker Travel Charger
