How Long To Charge Samsung Galaxy S4?

Today I tested how long it takes to charge my new phone (Samsung galaxy S4).  As part of the ongoing experiment with my Samsung S4.  The total time taken for the smartphone to charge from start to finish is listed below.  It takes 2 hours to charge the battery on the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Charging started at 6.15pm with 5% battery life remaining on the S4.

At 6.45pm the battery charge was at 32% complete on the Samsung Galaxy SIV.  It appears to charge 1% every minute.

At 7.15pm (60 minutes into the experiment) the phone charge was 66%.  This still agrees that the phone charges at about 1% every minute.

At this point I was thinking if maybe the Samsung S4 charges like the iPhone and iPod do.  With the Apple devices there is a rush charge for the first 80% of battery, then a trickle charge for the remaining 20%.

This was not the case!  Battery charge on the Samsung s4 was 100% complete at 8.15pm.  Taking exactly 2 hours to charge the battery on the Samsung Galaxy S4 phone.

From my previous review of the smartphone I expected it to be much longer.  I know that the battery doe snot last very long (less than 24 hours if you use the phone).  On Android you can go to settings -> More ->Battery and view a graph chart of how the battery discharges over time on the Samsung S4.

Also from my Samsung S4 review I was very disappointed by the battery life.  Thinking about this more I realise that if this was really a problem for my usage I could just buy a spare battery.  I guess I am just used to Apple locking everything into the product, but the Samsung S4 is free of restrictions.
