That doesn't look good... any chance you've installed something recently?

 

I'd reboot the phone for sure, but if that keeps up start looking hard at the apps you've installed...

No, that just appeared right after I did the upgrade from ATT and Samsung.

 

Now, it shows every 15 minutes.

 

Also, I notice that this new upgrade drains my battery super fast. I mean extremely fast. Any idea why?

Because it is a crap update. Att plus Samsung equals poor customer service.

You don't need to do a factory reset to get rid of those.  They're old downloads that you didn't clear out.  Go to the downloads app and clear everything out. If that doesn't work, go to settings > more  > application manager > swipe over to all > scroll down to download manager and clear the cache.  This should do the trick for you.  As for the battery drain, it usually sorts itself out after 7 to 10 days.  What I did after the update was let the battery completely drain, then remove the battery for about an hour and reinsert it. Then completely recharge the phone with the power turned off and with the stock charger.  What that does is that it tricks the battery into resetting itself. After that the battery drain was almost what it was in 4.1.2.  The battery drain issue is a known issue and according to another thread AT&T is working on a fix.  Hope this all helps you out.

You're welcome! Quick question for you, how did you get weather info to show up in your notification panel?

Re: What are these after upgrade S3 to Android 4.3?

Alright, I think the battery is really getting worse. Before I upgrade my Galaxy S3, my phone could last about 2 to 3 days without charging. Now, after the upgrade, I have to charge my phone every 7 hours.

 

The battery percentage drops in free fall even the phone just sitting there.

 

I tried the trick, take the battery out for 1 hour, charge it again as pbm5362 mentioned but it is not working.

 

Please help.

What does the battery usage details tell you about what is using the battery?
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

How come the Assign Groups feature now does not work?  Contacts/Edit/Assign Groups.  I have tried to assign a contact to a group after this update and it does not take it.

Re: What are these after upgrade S3 to Android 4.3?

One thing I do to help minimize the battery drain (even with previous O/S versions) is when I'm finished using the phone for a while, I end all running applications so they're not running while I'm not using the phone--especially GPS-related apps.
To do this, hold the home button down until the active applications screen opens (usually only takes a few seconds). You'll see a graphical list of the recent apps you've used. At the bottom of the screen are three icons, a pie chart, the Google logo, and a menu bars icon with an 'x' on it.
click the pie chart. That will open a list of all active apps. You can selectively end individual apps or end all active all by clicking (touching) the "End all" button.
Hope this helps some.

Re: Draining your Battery is a great way to break your battery.

Draining the battery will work no bettery than removing it from the phone and waiting for any compasitance discharge to end. (thats a fancy way of saying waiting for the voltage to drain out, like how your computer charger light stays on after you unplug it from the wall)

 

Anyway, the Li-ion battery in your phone should stay as charged as ofter as you can.  Optiumal battery charge is 90%, but I recommend keeping it over 70% if you can. 

 

Why?

It’s not a NiMH battery, and driving a Ion battery to reserve it a GREAT way to buy a new battery.  Without getting too technical they have no memory effect, which means that you do not have to completely discharge them before recharging, as with some other battery chemistries.

Meaning what someone on here recommended this and that will only work for use with NiMH or the old acid lead batteries.

Also, most Ion batteries only last 2 to 3 years and the lower the discharge the lower the life of the battery becomes.  If you ever remove the reserve charge and totally drain the battery you will destroy the battery.  That is fact, and I dare you to try it.  (Don’t try that please).

But this still does not solve the code issue in the 4.3 update that is not regulating the battery.  I am going on 2 or 3 months with 4.3 update, and AGAIN AT&T you have managed to destroy a working phone due to crappy coding and lack of error checking and Beta testing.  (I also blame Google and Samsung for this also)  Keep up the subpar work…. Go team.  LOL

Re: Draining your Battery is a great way to break your battery.

This is a bit late, but I think you should know this.

Turn off your GPS and your Bluetooth and anything that isn't in use like that.

GPS and Bluetooth will kill a phone's battery life,but this does not just affect Android phones, it affects all phones.

 

Tell me if this helps.
