    I just got my S4 last sunday and Im having issues with the battery draining quite fast.

    I noticed that the screen is eating up a lot of the battery life but the setting for the display's brightness is already at the lowest setting and the timeout is set to 30 seconds.

    Does anybody know what else I can do to fix this?

    Carura Chan, welcome to Android Central.
    Percentage wise the screen will almost always be the biggest drain, but this doesn't necessarily mean that this is the root cause of your drain.
    Usually the biggest culprits are the radios wifi/data/gps/cell. if you are in a poor cell location this could cause drain.
    Also if you leave data and/or wifi on all the time this could also drain battery very quickly. I would suggest shutting off your data when you are not in need of it.
    It would also be helpful to take a screen shot of your battery status screen and post It here so people could give you feedback on your usage.

    Show this screen.. Screen should usually be top (like it is for you) but screen on time tells more about why the battery is that low.

    Sent from my Sprint S3 using AC forums.

    Hi

    Are these screenshots right?
    I've only had the phone recently so I'm not sure where to find all the settings
    The battery shows 70% coz I just charged the phone for around an hour before taking the screenshot.
    I charged the phone with 15% battery left on it.
    I only got to use the phone for less than 4 hours from full charge.

    Oh and how long should the charging take anyway?
    Is it too fast if the phone charges 100% within an hour and a half??
    Should I go to the Samsung Service Center now?

    I usually get a full charge in an hour or so using the Samsung 2.0 amp charger. Charging time isn't your issue.

    Are you using the phone constantly during this time? Is the screen on an abnormal amount of time? Please forgive me if this sounds like a condescending question.
