I have a Galaxy S4 SHV-E330S currently running Official 4.4.2 and only gets 3:30 mins of screen time on my phone. I lose around a percent of battery life every two hours. This is really terrible for me as it is very low compared to other S4 models considering I have the Snapdragon 800 processor, so it's supposed to have more efficient battery life, please post screen shots of your battery usage and screen time as well and the firmware you are currently running. Please indicate the specific model of your S4. Thanks!

My battery is not the original one but it's quite good. 3h on screen with normal use. This battery drains a lot when screen off

What model is yours? We have the same battery life and I'm using the original one from Samsung.

See the thread in my signature about battery life. See if any of those tips help you improve your battery life.

There is nothing wrong with your screen on time. 3h30m is normal. And losing 1% every 2h? Come on that's really good. That's like 8,3 days standby time.....

Thanks for the post, sir. What's your screen time and what model do you have. i'ma. Bit disappointed because in gsmarena's review, it says S4 is supposed to have 10 hrs of battery life while browsing the internet. And i'm only reaching about 30% of it!

I have an i9505. 10 hours browsing is impossible to achieve. Maybe they mean browsing with your screen off
