Galaxy S4 charge instruction? I need help with charging?
I got a new battery for my S4 and I was wondering if I should on it and then charge it or charge it first and then on it for a longer battery life
As soon as you battery level drops below 50%, then recharge your Galaxy S4. Do not allow it at very low levels or worse, have it drained. To get the most out of your Galaxy S4's battery make sure that you charge when it on its optimum percentage that allows the most number-of-charges-over-total-usage ratio, which is at 50%.
When applying the new battery to your device it is recommended that you insert the battery into the device while switched off then charge your device before switching it on so that you battery can be fully charged before consumption.
Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-M919. Won't charge?
1st plug phone into charger.. nothing. So I bought a new USB charging board and installed it. Now when the phone is plugged in the battery icon flashes and the there is a red light on the face that flashes as well. The battery is not charging. I verified the connections a second time and everything appears to be plugged in. I'm not illiterate when it comes to electronics I just don't know what else to check on this phone. I do have a second phone so I verified its not the battery, the charger or the cable.
It is good to know that you have tried your own test to verify your battery, charger and cable status. This leaves us to the phone. There may be a problem with the phone's charging system or there could be some dirt on your phone that prevents it from charging properly. If your phone has a dirty charging port, clean it with a small pointed and object and slowly remove any debris on it.
If your phone's charging port is clean, then the problem is with your phone. Have it checked by a qualified technician. Make it a point to check your warranty to see if your phone is still covered. Your warranty may get you the repair for free or may save you a lot.
Without having a second device to test the battery on then it will be impossible to diagnose it as that problem. Also you can use your USB charger on any other device that accepts the Micro connection so that you can diagnose it as the problem. Also plug the USB into the computer to try and charge the device to check if its the charging base.

Using Samsung Galaxy S4 for the first time, you are required to fully charge it?
If you are using your Samsung Galaxy S4 for the first time, you are required to fully charge it, Do we need to drain battery first and then charge? ""
Yes, it is recommended that you fully charge your device fully upon your first time using the device. It is also in the manual upon getting your device that you should first charge it fully before use.
Hello. Normally, my Galaxy S4 takes around 2 hours to charge, for the green light to appear. Today, it took almost about 4 hours for the green light to appear. May I know the reason for this please?
Charge times depend on a number of factors: battery temperature, how much battery was left before you charged it, what apps are running, your location and how much coverage you're in, etc. You might have charged your phone while it was running intensive apps and searching for more bars. Four hours is not an exceptionally long charge time, anyway, so nothing is wrong with your phone.

Battery icon changed color since I have new cover. It's gray now instead of green. How to change it back?
Hi, on my Galaxy S4 the battery icon has turned from green to gray color. It still seams to work, but it's disturbing me. How to get it green again? The problem is existing since I put a cover on my phone. Did I touch something by accident?
Some of the covers for the devices will in fact cause a color change on your device, but if that were the problem then not only will the battery icon be a different color but also all other colors on the device. There are no options on the Samsung Galaxy S4 to change the color of the battery icon so the only logical explanation will be that you have downloaded an application to your device which has changed the color of your icon. Reply back with the applications you have downloaded since the problem first occurred in order for me to help you effectively.

How do I find out how long it takes to charge a Samsung Galaxy S4?
Also, how can I know if using a 5.2 volt charger for a 5.0 volt receiving phone is healthy for the charger and speeds up the charge, or is unhealthy for the phone and lowers the total amount of charge when fully charged?? thanks!
A person performed a study on their device by seeing how long it takes for the device to charge up with its standard charger that was included upon purchase. Understand that the study is based on the charger provided with the device.
The device started at %5 percent battery life and it was fully charged in two hours to %100 battery life. The study was also done with the person was not using the device at all so that it can charge faster.

Samsung S4 battery gray in color?
I haven't used this phone is 7 months. I then decided to use it, and when I went to charge it a gray battery appears and does not show any signs of color
Yes, this will happen when you first plug your device up when it is completely drained out from not being charged. Ensure that the USB chord that you are using is in fact in good condition for this can in fact cause your battery to not charge itself up completely.
My phone (S4) died yesterday for about 2 hours and when I plugged it up it took about 1 minute for the battery icon to show up as charging. I was stuck on the gray battery with a spinning circle for about 40 seconds before it began to charge itself up.
Along with the charger being the issue the battery may also be damaged being that it wasn't used in over 7 months causing it to discharge completely. You can purchase a new battery on ebay using the link below:
