    I'm very pleased. I switched from Android to iOS years ago because of battery life and was concerned when I decided to jump back in with the S4. Very, very happy.

    I think that is terrible !

    My S4 battery has been much better, in fact it lasts more than 20 hours on one charge easily.

    Here is a screen shot of mine from today (its had two very brief spells on charge when I was using Kies to update)

    Yes but it has been charged 4 times in that 20 hours you can tell by looking at the graph.

    Post screen times, or bust. That matters alot more than these graphs. People come on here all the time bragging about battery life with like cell stand-by and device idle taking up large portions of usage.

    Screen time matters but the full expanded graph is much better as in this screen...




    Heres my screen time and my screen is on 100% brightness all of the time, no auto brightness or power saving...

    Now that's what I'm talkin about! Great battery life. What kinda features you using? I'll have pretty much everything except multi-window off. Also I'll definitely have either 75% brightness all the time, or download Lux from the Play Store and use that.

    I have Air View, Air Gesture and Multi Window all on, the swipe web pages is really handy, quick glance is awesome too! The battery is outstanding, coming from an S3 it's a massive difference!

    Yours is on the 20 hour mark with you charging it when it got low...

    The stats won't reset (time on battery) till you are 90% or higher.... We can see from the screen shot it went up a bunch.. A. K. A you charged it.

    Not saying the S4 has bad life.. All Screenshots I see have great great time.. Just yours you charged it as well during that time so don't want people to be misinformed.

    Shouldn't the battery be dropped under 15%? I thought that would be bad for your phone?

    For the people saying I hit 20 hrs because of charging - I plugged it in the computer a few times to transfer data that charge was negligible. Here you go:

    I wasn't saying it wasn't possible but you did plug it in.. That's all I was pointing out. At one point you were in the red and went up to green so that's usually 15% or more :P. The main thing depends on how long you had the screen on. I can stretch my S3 for 20 hours easily.. Just rarely use the screen. Either way though it lasts a good amount of time ... most battery pictures I am seeing from people on the S4 are easily lasting all day which is all you really need from a phone .

    The last screen shot was with moderate to high screen use, constant bluetooth, about an hour or so of phone calls, facebook, chrome, 30 mins of navigation, temple run, etc, etc

    Understandable just saying you can show people that as well . Either way as I said nice battery.. For not just you all the S4 owners (from what I've been seeing)

    I had 100% charge on my s4 on friday morning at 7am. By noon with light usage and majority of the features(gps wifi bluetoth air gestures) turned off, my battery was down to a dismal 42% by noon. By the time it was 5pm, it was down to 10%. I was hardly using the fone since I was at work. My battery usage details showed that the screen was taking up 81% of my battery . I went back to at&t on saturday and they gave me a new handset. I have been on this handset for 1.5 hrs now and the battery has gone down to 82%. This is so so disapointing seeing the sort of battery life other people on this forum are getting. I dont know whats wrong with 2 brand new handsets. Also last night my screen usage randomly went down to 48% which is the lowest I have seen it go so far. I have not even started using this phone to its full capacity and this is the state of mt battery life

    You have to remember that you network has a lot to do with your battery life also! If your in an area with questionable signal, or weak LTE, (are you using LTE on ATT?) this will kill your battery as it is constantly searching for signal or switching back and forth between LTE and GSM signals even when the phone is in sleep mode! With two phones pulling the same issue, I'm wondering if this isn't an ATT issue in your area. Also, what do you have working in the backround? the phone could be sincing in sleep mode triggered by a Wifi network.
    Hope you find a solution!

    Cheers
