In my case it only tends to be an issue when I'm travelling.

In a normal day my phone lasts for most of my waking hours and I charge it overnight. If I am going on an inter-city train though, I tend to have lots of time to kill that I spend watching videos or playing games. I also often have relatively poor reception on the train and the phone has to hop from cell to cell every few hundred metres, which probably contributes to the battery usage.

I also use the wifi hotspot on the train and, judging by how warm the phone gets when I do, I'd guess this uses a lot of juice too.

I think that the S4's battery size is a good compromise between weight and capacity but it isn't always enough.
