    So I got my Samsung Galaxy S4 about 9 months ago and about 3 months ago it started dying really quickly after a full charge, and sometimes on idle will jump from 20% to 15% really quickly, it seems to die quicker when it passes the 20% charge. I am so frustrated with it because I will charge it fully and go to school the next morning at 0800, and by the time 1300 rolls around it dies and sometimes I don't have a charger with me. I recently ordered an authentic replacement battery from Samsung and literally nothing changed, the battery still doesn't last. I had contacted Verizon about the issue, and they had me do a factory reset after backing up all my files and contacts, etc. This only made things worse. The phone now dies in about 4 1/2 instead of 5 or 6 hours. I often notice my phone getting really hot in my pocket (no case) after using apps like Snapchat and Twitch occasionally. It tends to die really fast when I use messaging or Snapchat compared to other apps like twitter or Instagram. If anyone could help me that would be great, and I will post pictures of my battery report below.

    Why does my S4 die so quickly? I often have to charge it 3 times a day...-screenshot_2015-12-23-18-40-27_resized.png

    Turn off soundcloud and snapchat would save a lot of battery life. Hold down the home key a couple seconds and then close all the running apps.by tapping the close all button at the bottom right on the screen. You should close other Apps like facebook, Twitch, Cell Standby and any other apps you do not need running! Soundcloud looks likes your biggest offender!

    I have done all these things. They do nothing.

    I would replace the battery and try another charger and charging cable! If the battery is dying that fast the phone would have to get pretty warm. Normally a battery will last about 18 months or about 500 - 600 charges! Have you tried a new battery? Does it get warm when in use?

    let us know!
