Default post your battery usage here

Thought the s4 needed an official thread for this. That way, we get a variety of types of users and people can see what type of battery life they can expect and plan accordingly.

Please include a screenshot & also list what battery you are using, and if applicable any custom rom or hacks implemented that effect battery life at all.

I believe you can take a screenshot by using the power & home buttons at the same time, correct me if im wrong.

I.e. stock battery, cyanogenmod 11, 9505 verizon

<screenshot here> (will post mine when I get it of course)

I'll have to post a screen later as I didn't take one when I woke up this morning. But I actually forgot to put my phone on the charger lastnight as I fell asleep. Woke up with 13% left on the battery after 17 hours of it being on. Over 4 hours of screen on time this is Stock no root with the stock battery after 1 full charge Sprint SGS4. Texting all day after the full charge installing apps was on WiFi for awhile and just in general playing with the Camera and settings just getting a feel for the phone.
You're messing with my Zen thing man.
Carrier: Sprint / Unlimited Everything

This is after the first full drain and charge cycle. I'm content with this. It'll likely get better as well.

The former have bad apps or settings. This phone should be pulling around 6 hours of screen time.

I reckon you guys should be getting 6hrs easily. I am getting 5 and a half on my One, although I must admit a number of posters on the One forum are saying they are getting poor results. A number of 2 - 4 hours screen time. Do you think the extra real estate is making a difference. Do you think the extra battery size will nullify the extra real estate? Will be very interested to see how much of a difference there is between the octa and the snapdragon.

Today I dropped mine down to 12%, with just under 3 hours of screen time. I had data, NFC, wifi, and sync on the entire time. I thought it would do a bit better than this, luckily I am going to pick up a new Anker replacement battery on Tuesday.
