    I have a galaxy s4 and i love it but the battery life is extremely poor. I want to know if i have a defective battery or something along those lines. For example, My battery dropped from 100 percent to about 83 in about 10 minutes after i quickly checked facebook and placed in my pocket. My phone does heat up quite a bit as well, even when i just browse my social media. The phone also charges very slowly and the battery drains faster than i can use it. As i typed this on my laptop, my phone just turned on and sat there, i didnt touch it and it dropped from 40 to 36 percent. Also, my phone screen always stays on when i charge it, how do i stop that? Any suggestions in general on how i can fix this?

    it's only 2600 mAh. which is pretty bad for a flagship type phone. I strongly suggest getting an aftermarket battery, like the anker 7800 mAh, which is what I am using. Holds on for 4 business days under relatively heavy use.

    as for part 2 of your answer, just tinker around with the settings, if that doesn't help, restore it to factory and be careful what you tinker with.

    How did you determine that my phone battery was a 2600 mAh?
