Yup. You need a new battery. The S4 is an older device and the batteries certainly don't last forever. The good news is that you can pick up a new battery relatively cheaply on eBay or Amazon. Make sure also to check under settings...battery to see what apps might be eating your battery. Facebook has been known to be a battery hog. There are alternatives like Metal if that's happening to you.
Thank you Chad. I couldnt figure out what was going on. I will look into getting a new battery. i do have a lot of Apps on my phone. Thanks again.
