    Post your screen on time and we can judge from that whether your battery life is normal or not.

    Welcome to Android Central! Charge up to 100%, then use it normally until 20-30% (without charging in between). Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen Battery Graph (showing Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category (to see the total Time Without Signal).

    1% every few minutes with the screen on? That's normal for any phone. Average is around 3-4. Depends on your screen brightness, but it doesn't sound too bad. Could you tell us exactly how often you lose 1%?

    Streaming video on utube will do that, perfectly normal. Oh and remove battery doctor its a waste of time and does more harm than good with its app closer.

    Go to the screens that I mentioned above in the system settings menu. Take a screenshot: How to take a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy S5 | Android Central. Then post those screenshots here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-central.html

    Go to your System Settings, then tap Battery for the main screen.

    For the fullscreen graph, tap the graph that you see on the above screen.

    For the Screen category, look through the apps or processes listed in the main screen, and tap Screen.

    For the Cell Standby category, do the same as for the Screen category. If your phone hasn't been using much battery on standby, you might not find this one.

    How much do you have brightness on? keep it around 20% for good battery backup
