I have a Galaxy 3 - bought about a year ago. The battery life is now about half an hour. Any thoughts on what causes this and possible solutions? Thanks

I was having similar battery problem, but read somewhere that changing the Original Charger for a different make might fix the problem - I just happened to have a HTC Charger so gave it a try, charge not only lasts longer but gets fully charged quicker.
