If you have an iPad, use the 2000mAh charger from that. It's the same output as the Samsung OEM charger. That should tell you if it's the phone or the charger. Try a different cable too, although know that not all cables can pass the same current.

Load the Galaxy Charging Current free app and see what charge your GS4 is taking. I find it normal to see around 1200mAh initially and sometimes up to 1900mAh. You might see 500mAh from a connection to your computer's USB port.
