some problem on I9190 battery

by lolimajou / October 29, 2013 6:29 PM PDT

Hi.. It was about my new S4 Mini(I9190) battery life.. it is a wonderful phone with great spec but I think the battery gets over soon and I dont know whether its normal for S4 mini. I unplugged it with 100% power 8 am and it discharge almost half after 5 hrs even switch 3G/WiFi off, no bloatwares and moderate usage, however, only a little improvement.

Worring about to recharge my phone in midday drives me nuts! I even ordered an additional battery claims 2900mah from mpj or something last night to increase battery life.
So idk whether it might be a faulty handset/battery? Is this normal? Any advice about the battery life of the S4 mini will be helpful and appreciated! Thx!

Sounds about right.

Most cell phones discharge about half in that time. Well the ones from last year but as you can imagine the only way to stop the discharge is to turn it completely off.

There are thousands of web posts about cell phone batteries so I'm not going to go too deep here. Why not charge when needed like millions of folk do?

My phone has similar drainage but i use a lot of data on it and since i am not a fan of plugging it in all the time, i take secondary batteries even in my daily routine.
