    Default I've SOLVED the Galaxy S4 battery problem! I can go alllllll day now without hunting down a charger!

    I've SOLVED the Galaxy S4 battery problem! I can go alllllll day now without hunting down a charger!-41gwptaorcl.jpg
    I gave up on tweak this, try that, turn the screen down. bla bla bla.
    Just be done with it and get a Mophie case. lol.
    I did, it's 80 bucks but it's well worth having a 'cordless day' and not having to mess with it anymore.
    Just plug in at night like normal, when it gets low..Just flip a switch on the back of the case. and I'm good to go until bedtime.
    Oh and the built in speakers on the front of the case rock.
    You're welcome.

    Fyi, you can also use an extended battery.

    Sure but then you'll need a bigger case too. This charging case fits the bill.

    Built in speakers? Is there a connection or something? The S4 just has the single speaker on the back and I thought the Mophie completely covers the rear speaker. Please help me understand, thank you.

    Ok very cool. Forgive my ignorance, but how are they connected? Bluetooth? Wired somehow?

    I have a Mophie Juice Pack too. I was unaware the S4 had an available extended battery.

    Lol, well cool if they work! Honestly that was the only reason I didn't get one was because I thought that the sound would be blocked or muffled at best since the speaker is in the back covered by the Mophie case. Volume good too?

    Well there's mine. And that's with the Mophie case adding a little Juice earlier today bumping it from 50 back up to around 75 about 3 hours ago.
    Crazy battery life. It's so dependent on YOU to keep the settings and B things right so that it doesn't chew up your battery.

    From what I've seen they are not speakers they redirect the sound thru channels to bring the sound to the front of the phone, because the case covers the speaker.

    If you’ve used a Mophie battery case before, you’ll know that it adds a considerable amount of bulk to your phone. But if you’re spending all day at a conference with questionable access to power, you’ll know that it can be well worth the added pocket real estate. Mophie has also done a good job at refining their passthrough buttons and switches to the point where they’re almost as easy to use as the originals on the phone itself. The metal plate surrounding the micro USB connector at the bottom of the case adds durability, and the speaker redirect channels make it easier to listen to content through your iPhone’s own audio drivers.

    Granted this ad is for the iPhone.

    There are NO SPEAKERS on this case. It's simply holes, and they have routed the sound from your current S4 speakers from the back to the front.
    That's it, that's all! No wizardry or magic. So those "Rockin' Speakers" are the same ones you rocked out to before...

    Point being, you obviously don't research the products you buy, as you had no idea that you actually didn't get new speakers.
    And others DO CARE hence why I made a point to let them know before they run out and get this case you are going on about
    thinking they are going to get better speakers included when it's just 2 holes to reroute sound.

    True. I just bought it. And enjoy it. Sorry if I gave someone the impression that it's a Bose. I was so embarrassed when I called all my friends over for a house party and pulled out my phone and I was like check out these speakers! And then one of my buds brought it all down and said hey let's split.... These aren't SPEAKERS? Wth? These are just two holes!
    Man, I hate that when my lack of cell phone research let's people down.

    Ya, it's pretty obvious from your reply what age group you fall into. The generation of entitlement. Punk teen, and if you aren't a teen then you need to grow up bud.
