    I just bought the Galaxy S4 a week a go after having the iPhone 4S. Since then my battery has gone down significantly within a short amount of time. For example after charging my phone all night it will be at 80% within an hour of taking it off of the charger. I did add an app, Battery Doctor, which initially made a significant difference until yesterday. And I am not on my phone constantly either. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Take a look at Settings - More - Battery and post the %s for the things using your battery. It should be "screen" followed by other stuff; if something is using more than screen, that may be the culprit for excess battery use.
