Hi, actually i am thinking of buying Galaxy S4 recently…but before really have one, I want to know have you ever felt your S4 die fast?? Though its battery seems not bad, I am still a little worry about with the big touch screen and fast processor may suck up too much power…so wandering how long could ur SGS4 last between charges?

 

I don't know about you, but the idea of carrying an extra battery or swapping to a bulky battery is acceptable for me…cuz I really want one…but it would surely better if the stock battery is great and I don’t need to spend extra money on it...but it might be helpful if anyone reccomend to mexD

I've had an S4 for a few months, and I find the battery life pretty good.  I upgraded from an S2, and the battery lasts me a similar amount of time.

 

I always get a spare battery when I buy a phone, as I do find on some occasions that any phone battery dies quickly - and as I almost always carry a bag around with me that is not a problem to carry.  Main causes of battery drain for me are having the screen on of course, but also wandering around London for a day seems to kill any phone fast if I don't put it in flight mode some of the time (I think it the frequent tower changes that drain it).

 

So in summary, I think you'll find it similar to many other phones of this kind.

My personal experience is that S4 has decent battery life, ranging anywhere from 1 day (if you turn on WIFI + Data and you have couple of hours screen on time during the day) up to 5-6 days when WIFI and Data are off, and you have only few SMS and calls during the day.

More than acceptable, if you ask me.

I'm pretty happy with the battery of the S4. It lasts the whole day. I think it's of the best in it's class as far as battery is concerned.
