Go to Application Manager > Downloaded > Click on Apps listed one by one.. Click on Force Stop (to stop app immediately) or Disable (to completely stop/disable it from now on permanently)..
Same you can do by going to Running Apps in App Manager..
Disable Apps like ChatOn, Dropbox, Google Playbooks, Google Movies & TV,HP Printer Plugin, Watchon, Tripadvisor, Samsung Apps (if you dont use them).. This will help saving battery and get you 15-27 Hrs Battery backup with light-normal use.. On heavy use expect 8-10 Hrs battery backup..
This phone has Excellent Battery Standby times.. i am really impressed (especially versus my old Galaxy S2)
Hope this was helpful to many users in general who have complaints regarding battery and apps.

Obviously Accidentally Breakage is never covered in Warranty even if you buy a Rs.1000 entry level phone.. You should have been careful rather than blaming the phone/company/service center.. And its not Funny ironically..
Gorilla Glass is Scratch resistant and not non breakable/non scratching.. Please get your facts up to date before spreading bad word without adequate knowledge..
its the best phone m using till now
the only disappointing about this phone is it shows only 8gb of internal memory
Irshad, gorilla glass dosent mean that it wil not break.....its a smart phone n it depends hw u use it.... For any device if ther is any customer induced damage then it wil go out of warrenty.....

Tap on the sign and it will allow you further options to include more phone numbers.
My s4 accidentally got slipped from my hand.
When I took it up, the glass got broke!!!
I brought the S4 by hearing about its non-breakable and non-scratch GORILLA glass.
My heart got broke than the S4.
And the funniest part, when went to the shop where I bought my mob they said, there is no warranty for glass break.
Superb smartphone from Samsung .Good battery back up after 4.3 update .For battery draining problem, please make sure
that back ground processing of some applications need to force close or disable.
Please guys enough of this arguments about my phone is better than your own or one complaint or another. Let us for once tell ourselves what we enjoy in these devices. What applications are useful to you so that others can enjoy it too. I rest my case.
Sufiyan, 11 Dec 2013I have also purchase Galaxy S4 before 8 month. There are so many problems facing with this. So... moreIf you have all kind of problems. Please replace of your set to nearest Samsung Care. For your kind info this mobile is quite good and ever. I am still using last six months.
Best of luck.
I have also purchase Galaxy S4 before 8 month. There are so many problems facing with this. Some time during charging the temp. shows above than 104 deg. and the getting more heat. Some time its automatically heating without charging or uses. And the 13MP camera's pictures & Videos quality is very dull. Also facing network issues through Wi-Fi connectivity.
