Yeah, what you say makes sense. I'll wait until the battery has had at least 6 charges and see if it optimizes more efficiently..
p.s. Nice post.

You can check all the review sites on this point. according to gsmarena, the s4 had got an endurance rating of 69 hours opposed to 50 hrs of s3. so that's an improvement. You may have got the phone recently or have done a firmware update recently. so wait for a week or 8 to 9 days till the battery becomes great and much better than s3.
Also my personal recommendation for firmware update are:
update via kies only. it downloads whole firmware.
do a factory reset before and after update. backup your data.
wait for one week till the phone becomes stable.
wish you a good time with your s4. these are not just my personal views but I advised them to many people and they are happy now.
Fatboy90, 06 Sep 2013So you finally took out the S4 out of the box...good...hope you didnt chuck the S3!@ Fatboy90
LOL. No, I keep the S3 charged for when the S4 battery runs out. Doesn't last long, does it? On average, the S4 battery lasts about half as long as the S3 one. I wonder why? The faster CPU perhaps, or the Snapdragon chipset, or maybe it's got poorer memory management.
Do you know?

Hey! You missed out 'sanctimonious', or was too big a word for you to spell?
Sanctimonious is a twist on the words sanctity and sacred, which mean holy or religious. A sanctimonious person might think he's holy, but their attitude comes across more like "holier-than-thou".
If you're going to insult me then at least get it right.
[deleted post]hey I've seeing both of you and freefaller just bash each other on this thread from the past one or two days and really you have made a mess of this forum. Please if you both want to really fight give each other your email id and send mails full of all the foul words to each other.
And anonymous you are the more irritating one who just doesn't understand even a thing. tell me which devices except nexus are on 4.3 . and Samsung is the best when talking of software updates. and believe me that software update rollout takes almost 2 to 3 months Even if you are on Sony or htc. forget lg as that doesnt even provide updates. and Samsung has provided me 6 updates till day to improve on soo many aspects.
Try going to other oem. They don't provide updates. and touchwiz is a very feature rich ui and hence it takes time to develop an update. I have seen my friend in pain who got Android 2.3 on his xperia s on launch and got updated to 4.0(buggy) after 4 months and 4.1 in this July after now than one year. htc is worse and lg is even worser. Also there is nothing much difference b/w 4.2 and 4.3 and 4.1 . Why are you being so serious?????
and for your kind information, the update over kies downloads the whole firmware which is always better than only some selected files on OTA. It's like an clean upgrade.
[deleted post]Did you know that ALL of android mobile phones are experiencing heating issues?? Geez.. web browsing on data and playing games are its cause..
Just one month old with s4. Simply great.yeah I agree it gets hot, but only while you play games and browse while charging.
Touch wiz is the coolest when compared to stock version of s4. Thumbs up for S4.
N7, 06 Sep 2013Thanks for the help, i hope they work on latest update to move apps completely , bcz 8.9gb is ... moreno problem mate.. I think there's no way for them to do that.. All of mobile phones of android cannot totally transfer apps to sd card.. It's just the data of apps only..some of people who rooted their phones uses apps2sd..i don't know if that app really transfers the app itself and the data to SD card..
My Neo V is rooted and uses stable CM9.1.0 and my free internal memory is just 420MB but I can download 800MB app..because it automatically transfer the data of the app into my SD card..I haven't tried to root my S4 because I gave it to my wife.. Geez..

Keep up the good work.
The heating up issue is been overcome by periodic software updates releases by Samsung . Download them and the issue is solved .
moreover the software updates boosts system stability and enhances RAM memory.
All in all an awesome smartfone being a true life companion .....

First of all, I am NOT posting under different names. The other person you are referring to was using copy & paste to post my comment elsewhere.
You call the update process 'cumbersome', but in actual fact you are just angry because you aren't at the front of the queue. Samsung sold over 100 million S3 models, and is approaching 50 million S4. Can you imagine 150 million phone users all trying to use the Samsung servers at the same time?
You demand that Samsung should find a better way of issuing updates. Well what do you suggest. You tell us a better way of doing it. I bet you cant!
Please keep posting, I do enjoy reading your comments (but mind your blood pressure).

FYI, it's not all the apps has been transferred on your SD card, it is the data only.. The app itself is stayed on your internal memory..
I hope I answered your question..
