    Ever since I've bought my phone, the battery never lasts more than a few hours through normal use. I've used it for more than a year now and it is one of the worst. Even now, with 52% percent remaining, the battery is draining 1% every minute maybe more. Any solutions ?

    Have you cleared the cache? Factory reset? That's were I'd start troubleshooting.

    The S4's shipped with a batch of defective battery's. To test if you have one of those, remove the battery and try spinning it on a table or other flat smooth surface. If it spins, it is swollen and defective. Samsung's warranty on battery is normally 12 months. There is plenty evidence on the Internet about tge defective batch so push for a free replacement. If it does not spin, try the troubleshooting recommended on th AC forum.

    One doubt, does factory reset delete my data and btw I've tried to clear cache.

    A FACTORY RESET returns the phone to the day you received it. All apps, data, pictures, etc will be removed! This is usually a last resort! If you can, try another battery and do a RESTART. This does not erase anything and can solve a lot of problems. Hold down the start button and chose RESTART!
