The screen is usually the biggest power consumer on a smartphone.

1% per 3-4 minutes would equal 300-400 minutes screen on life, i.e. 5.0-6.7 hours screen on time. With a new battery, so not at max performance yet. TBH I don't think there's anything wrong with that.

Remember also that brightness settings affect this, and AMOLED screens use less power with dark images than with white backgrounds, so there can be a lot of variation in power usage.
