replacements on amazon £5, will ring samsung to see if they can post a replacement. battery at 100% charge on standby now only lasts 5 hours now going downhill quickly. seems net is full of forgery ones for sale.

samsung replied their batteries only guarenteed for just 6 months can't believe they dont expect them to last much longer than that. the phone is first class why put a crap battery in it.

I had a Galaxy S3 and have moved on to a Galaxy S4. I never had a problem with this battery or the original battery. I have a S3 spare battery and charging dock purchased from Amazon - now surplus to my needs.(Gratis) Interested

thankyou for the offer, the replacement amazon battery for £5 is working but not 100% it charges quickly, but the battery although lasts a lot longer than the failing one it is still not like when the phone was working correctly, also the green charging light comes on at 93% instead of 100% which i thought odd. I will decline the offer for now while i wait to see how the amazon battery goes.

thank you for the offer,10 months to go till end of contract.
