Yeah neither do i see a problem here, screen time depends on your usage.. if you watch movies offline it gave me around 8 to 10 hours of view time from 100% to 5%.
Upon usage such as browsing the net and gaming and frequent texting i get around 3.5 to 4.5 hours

???
did you post the wrong picture ?
I don't see any problems.
3h50m time on, and still left 61% ?
it is quite good enough already. Means with the same usage, you will get around (roughly) 8h+ (Time ON) down to 1% battery left.

I don't want to be an smart ass, but the 61% doesn't mean the battery % he has left. It shows how much battery has the screen used in % in one charge.
If the 3h 50 min screen on time is from one charge, then this is not very good.
I assume you have your brightness set to maximum, because i have mine set to automatic (0 or -5) and in my usage tab it shows only 30 to 35%.
Are you playing a lot of games ? Could be a faulty battery. Do you have all the phone features turned on ?
There are threads on the web how to maximize battery life or how to find the reasons for battery drain.
Google is your friend.

The image provided does not provide any insight on how bad/normal/good the usage is.

That's normal bro
Completely normal, Display will always take up the majority of the battery life (unless you are running graphic intensive games or a program that is terribly programmed).

There are plenty of 3rd party products out there to boost your battery life. Hyperion, YESSO, Anker (Aker?) have batteries that are double the capacity of the factory ones. There is also ZEROLEMON battery that is 3 times the capacity (If you don't mind bulk this is the best for battery life).

You can buy the factory capacity battery (3200 mAh) for relatively cheap as a back up as well.

I have several and my favorite is the ZEROLEMON but I don't mind the bulk and in fact its more comfortable to hold.

Itís pretty difficult to say what the problem really is when the issue happened only once, doesnít it? Sorry, I canít say what the matter with your new phone. As what I understand, the phone didnít charge immediately the second time you charged it. But then removing the battery solved the problem, so thereís nothing to troubleshoot because we donít know if the problem would happen again.
