    That's odd. I've gotten over 4 and a half hours on screen time and I've still got 25% left. This is my first charge cycle. I'll screen shot it when its about to die. I'm extremely impressed so far.

    Keep in mind that the S4 uses 4G LTE which is a HUGE battery killer plus all the features, bigger and brighter screen which the 4S doesn't have. If you want to save battery just turn off all the features and radios, and just leave things you need ON. Also, turn down the brightness and you will see improvement. I also had a 4S and I am a hardcore user and had to buy a mophie battery case to get through the day and now with the S4 I had to buy 2 spare batteries for the same exact reason.

    Are you sure you're not just playing with it more? There is also a small chance you could have received a bad battery...it happens sometimes. Hard to believe it could be worse than the iP4S. BTW, some actual numbers and stats would be helpful.

    Yeah, my friend got his S4 yesterday and he said he was using it all day today (without charging it since 7PM yesterday) and that he just got down to 21% a little bit ago. It has to be a bad battery or a troll.

    No. Unfortunately I don't think it will ever end. I will say that I do get some entertainment when I think about people wasting their time bashing a phone/anything that they don't like. Most people would just move on in life if they don't like something.

    Threads like this are in abundance whenever a new android is released. Ruins this site imo. Maybe your phone is defective

    Calling someone a troll is a form of trolling. It also starts the thread derailing. You can choose not to reply and the thread will die.

    Thanks.

    I think the battery on this phone is great! Especially coming from a One X. This is the first cycle, has been off the charger since 7 a.m. and 50% screen brightness. Still have 64% left. Tried to post screen shot but its telling me parameters are missing?

    I have not had any battery issues thus far and I'm using it hard. I got 18 hours on first usage after a full charge with hard use.

    No doubt about it with those screen on stats from two users the S4 battery hangs with the best of them and will last me all day without question. That is better than I got on my S3.

    No because his statement is absurd. The S4 has almost twice the battery capacity. Add the fact no other statement was given along side that comment to back his findings I have good reason to call him out. And I'm sorry I am now trolling since I had to call someone out...ridiculous but whatever. Just close the thread anyways the op has since been back.
