I have got the maximum 6 hr 48 min screen time on 1 charge. That time i did 2 hr browsing and 5 hr e-book reading.
Having a black themed wallpaper will help. Hint: Choose a batman one. It looks cool and black saves a lot of power on amoled.
Enable CPU power saving to save battery life too if the phone is smooth enough for you after that.
Just follow these simple things and your battery life will reach at least 4.5 hours or 5.5 if you don't use 2G.
I will post my stats for my new battery after 3-4 days. Currently it's 1 hr 8 min of on-screen time and 76% battery left after 23 hr since unplugging. I believe i'll reach 5 hr.
Have a nice day.

I am confused which one to buy between Nexus 5 and Samsung s4. Both have almost the same features. Pls suggest me one.

If it's greater than 4 hour 30 min it's normal. If it's greater than 5 hour 30 min it's awesome and if it's greater than 6 hrs it's outrageous.
You are not gonna get 7 hrs i can promise.

And yes, you'll have to get the unofficial apk from xda or some other source to make it work on your browser if it doesn't.

Flash support was ended after android 4.0, so the latest flash APK we can get from adobe website is for ICS. And as I said above, this do not work with all browsers, I have tested this on Mozilla and works fine.

I want to ask you that what is "MEDIA SERVER"? I can see that it is using my battery so much and it keeps running out there , I even closed most of useless apps but that was still running. Any ideas?
And what are the most used system apps are draining your battery ,just asking to match with mine.
Do you think updating to 4.4.2 is good option as I read that new 4.4.3 also got bugs in it(Of course in which new kit kat is available)

I believe there is flash already installed in the stock browser. I think i'm wrong. Just google the adobe flash apk and play it in your phone. Flash would be installed. I didn't try it as most of the videos are HTML5 based now and I don't watch vidoes online on phone.
Please try this and tell me if it works.
Everything is fine here. How's your unit working?

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2014Radio is downloadable in this device huh?No, you can not download radio or FM in galaxy S4, you can download apps like milkmusic which work as radio with the help of internet.. but these type of apps work in US only and some other country too (not in india).
In indian galaxy S4, you can use Tunein Radio, it also work via internet, but it work fine in india, or I can say only this radio app work in india as per my research till now.

In 4.4.2 you can use du battrry saver if once you done factory formate after updating to 4.4.2, if not do factory formate once and then install du battery saver. Battery Back-up will also increase after that (I also use du battery saver in 4.4.2 and was using the same when I was in 4.2.2 while facing problems)... Do remember to back-up all data before formating.
