    Don't know, but your signal is very low and that doesn't help

    Just restart the phone and after a full charge it should be back to normal.

    When you say restart do you mean just turn it off and take the battery out? Or is there like a section in the phone that allows you to restart it?

    I wouldn't judge the battery usage on 4 minutes.. There will be things there that may not normally be there with high percentages. Such as.. Media server could be any type of media being played.. Music, movies, etc. And it's so high because it's only been 4 minutes and that is the drain.

    As for it charging slow does it do this with any other charger? Also what syncs do you have running?

    It says only 4 only minutes because I turned it off or restarted it. When I charge it with the charger it came with the battery drains very fast. When I charge it with another charger I see the charge last longer. It won't drain as fast.

    The time stays even if the device is restarted. The only time the "time on battery" resets is when the phone hits 90% or higher.

    Yes but my phone was at 99% at 731 when I took it off the charger. Since then it's been draining. Right now at 77% and it's been off the charger not even 2 whole hours

    Try tapping on the screen percentage when in the battery section and it'll show the screen time (example below).

    i have had mine for about a month. and this last week its like it wont charge even with being on the charger for days... it was discharging on the cord provided and they are sending me a new one.... when and used just the regular micro usb that came with my s3 that i traded in and some times it charges but other times it just stays at the same percentage. starting to get frustrated big time..... i have been diligent about unplugging it after i get to 100 precent... and i heard this battery was amazing with somewhat heavy use.... i havent seen it yet. but i do love my phone... i also did a master reset to see if it would help.. any recomendations

    So in the last week my charger was working slow. And finally last night it just wouldn't charge at all. Verizon should swap it out as I'm still in warranty right? I love the phone but have yet to see the great battery life that everyone talks about.

    Yes they will swap the charger out and if need be, the phone too.
