    I had an S4 for a month, one of my service techs dropped it and shattered the screen. Our IT guy had the screen repaired and I got it back "as good as new" (or so i thought), since the repair my battery life is HORRIBLE! I take it off the charger, get kids to school, get to work, 90 minutes after its been unplugged from 100%, it is 80% or lower, typically with minimal (if any) usage other than being in my pocket. I also notice it runs hotter than before.

    I noticed under battery usage that the screen was pulling a whopping 80% usage. Friend suggested I get GSAM Battery Monitor, so I just installed that and in 5 minutes it has gone from 90% to 86% and the monitor is showing between 80% and 90% usage. Even if i dim the screen.

    I was going to just buy a Morphie Juice Pack case, but IT guy is willing to replace it.

    Anything i should attempt before we replace it?

    Do you have GPS enabled? That'll slaughter battery life quick, fast, and in-a-hurry.
