Morning, well it is here in Cape Town, South Africa.
Their are most likely countless threada on S4 Battery problems but I would like to directly address the problem I am having.
- My phone was dropped in muddy water late last year
- My local Samsung repair centre covered the repairs with ADH cover -> Both liquid damage and Cracked screen replacement. They pretty much replaced all the internal parts of my phone.
- They specifically told me that the battery was not affected even though I found this hard to believe. After the repair my intense drainage problem was still persisting which led me to buy a brand bew Battery.
Before the actual repairs my phones battery would run out of juice within 4 hours. I would take my S4 off charge at about 8am and then need to recharge it at about 12 or 1 in the afternoon, especially if I was using it. I finally sent the phone in for repairs and the Samsung Repair centre everything was replaceed except for the supposedly healthy battery. The draining still continued.
Anyway, I bought a brand new battery from my local online retailer for relatively cheap. The battery worked like a charm since I was getting around 12hours without any need to recharge. Lately I have been needing to keep it on charge otherwise any usage woild result in severe drainage. From typing this message I think I have lost about 5% of battery life ... so any usage of the device would mean severe battery drain.
I have attached a screen shot of my battery as it currently stands but ill keep posting at the end of the day of my battery level.
I think its important to note that I notice my CPU gets hot ... I mean I can feel the heat and it does not feel normal!!
Anyway, any idea what the problem could be?
I have disabled any GPS tracking ability, disabled S Voice, S Health and un-installed apps that I don't use anymore. My screen lighting is set yo auto and Google Plus is active, I have also disabled auto backup.
Hope this all makes sense since I hate typing long messages on my phone.
I have also seen people with screen time on a lot longer than mine with better battery life
