    I bought a new S4 and have had this for 2 months or so now. Recently if i played some games after charging it fully and using it. Only 10 mins, the battery lost 35%. It totally freaking me out!! I never drain my battery that fast before even playing those 3d games does take a lot of juice. Is this a fauty battery??

    edit: I told my friend this problem and he said it sounds like the battery is going bad. He suggested to see about a replacement. I don't trust those iffy OEM batteries on amazon, so decided to have an mpj one. Let see what happen.

    If it is only 2 months old, shouldn't it still be under manufacturer warranty? I would contact my carrier, place of sale, and manufacturer.

    Ditto to what Sherri said.

    Also, does this only occur after playing a particular game? Perhaps that game has some bad code?

    Before running out to replace a battery investigate if there is a general problem with all apps and functions or if it seems to relate to one particular app/game. I would delete that game ans see how the phone does for a few days.

    Huh? Before you go abroad, go to the store you got phone, or call customer support for your wireless carrier. A new battery should not be dying in 2 months.

    Opening your phone to replace it is a simple solution if it has a removable battery. Many phones don't. But if you have a new phone, why pay for something that you may not have to?
