    Alright so my galaxy s4 charges very slow like about 2.5-3 hours to fully charge from 0 to 100% i normally charge whenever chance i get even when its 85 all the way to about 95 or around that area. I checked and the top 2 things using battery is display and google services. I also have LightFlow installed and set it to a gold led notification light when it is charging? I am wondering whether this could be a issue? Any advice? My brightness is always a little more than half.

    That sounds about right to me, but I don't own the device. My HTC One takes over 4.5hrs to charge from dead.

    Two and a half hours is about right as stated, from 0 to 100. Also make sure that you're using the stock charger and cable. Display will not affect charge time unless you've enabled the setting to keep the screen awake, and even that affect is minimal.

    Yes I am using the default charger and cable. I dont really know. I switched from an iPhone 4 and it charged really fast. Now it takes forever.

    My phone does not support quickcharge. Yours is about right. Don't worry, your battery is bigger than the iPhone4 battery

    Also Is it safe to charge the phone overnight? Will it do any damage?

    Perfectly safe to charge it overnight. The phone handles the power regulation. It will not overcharge or hurt the phone at all.
