Im lucky if I get 11 - 12 hours out of mine. I am usually talking on the phone about 3 - 4 hours, have music playing for 3 hours, texting, using the internet and camera in between that. I was expecting the battery to last slightly longer than my htc which lasts about 13 hours but am disappointed. Still love the phone though.

mine was on 100% at 9am, been looking at a few web pages throughout the day and send a few messages, not intensive use and at 3:45pm its at 35%. not great

I unplugged mine at 6am, used it a fair bit, prob a good hour and half on the phone, text messaging, FB, several hours of internet surfing with the screen on full brightness and I still have 29% left at 10pm - I'm really impressed by the battery life (going from a S2 which I used to get 9 hours from a battery - I used to have to carry round another with me at all times!)

One of my major gripes about the iPhone5 was its battery life so I switched to a Galaxy S4 and haven't looked back. I do charge it daily, but generally I have around 50% battery life left at the end of the day (compared to 0% by about 6pm for an iPhone5). I tend to use my phone lots before and after work but during the day my usage is generally low. I also have an official S4 spare battery (S4 battery pack) which can be charged separately to the phone!
