    Click on usage where you are seeing the battery time. It will show you what is using the battery. That is what a few people are asking about.

    That's odd... I'd like to know how much screen time you're getting and on what brightness setting before I bother going into the verizon store

    Could you install the Better Battery Stats app? It will give incredible detail, both numerically and graphically.

    That app is a pay app, so ya lol dont wanna throw away 3 bucks just to run it once which i would never use again. Today i was stuck in traffic for an hour since there was an accident on the freeway, so i had my navigation running in the back, i also had the web browser open running an online police scanner so i could hear whats going on and when they are opening the freeway, so for an hour straight i had the lcd on at full brightness and the battery stayed the same as it was when i had first started (the icon which shows how much u have not the percent of battery that was left). I can honestly say the battery is running great for me on this phone, no complaints what so ever about it.

    It's not very good.

    You can last all day if you only use it for a few minutes every 1-2 hours, but if you use it for 20-30 minutes at once (on the train, waiting for a friend, etc.) it will go down 15%+ just by surfing the web, and will get really warm.

    I use the phone all day constantly, not just once. Also from that 1 hour screen being on, the phone did not get really warm at all.

    I'm a average user and get about 5 hours out of the battery. That's using facebook Twitter and checking mail. About 4 calls around two minutes each.

    Though the s4 pro is am efficient processor, you are only going to be able to get so much out of a 2200 mah battery on lte with a screen like that. May want to invest in a portable battery pack.

    On bionic now, getting the note 2 Thursday. Just wondering why, after the thunderbolt fiasco, would you get such a high tech device with such a teenie power supply. Not to mention sealed. And only 16 gig. No card slot. Really, why waste your money on this thing.
