    This is what I get from my STOCK S4 NG6.
    The cell is in airplane mode entire time, just Wi-Fi, and location turned on. This is extremely Light usage. Charges in around 1.5 hours.

    What's your screen on time?

    Are you still on the original battery as well?

    Not bad, but since it's in Airplane mode and light use I thought it would last longer. Considering one of the main weaknesses of Samsung devices are the weak radios, that greatly effects battery life.

    The MAX I have seen is 2 days, in solid standby! With my usual usage, I get 14-16 hours of life, I don't even use power saver that often

    On my last phone (Bionic) I used Juice Defender Ultimate to turn radios off when not needed, and other measures. It usually worked, but at times it would fail to turn radios on so I would occasionally have to manually turn them on or reboot to get it straightened out. Very inconvenient if you're expecting an important Email or notification - or you just want to Google something. When I went to my S4 it lasted much longer than the Bionic did with the extended battery, so I didn't run Juice Defender and I don't miss the inconvenience. I'd rather do extra charging than have to hobble it by disabling radios just to get more run time.
