I recommend you to don’t use push ads. As mostly Android free apps are using ads like Airpush. For example when you go to download free apps from the Play Store and check out its features. The push ads run continuously at the background and fetch advertisements from the web to show on notification bar. Use an app to find out which apps are doing so. Simply Uninstall them.

The black is the most power effective color for an AMOLED screen. It is because this type of displays is made of an incredible number of small lighting. Black indicates the lighting are dim or absolutely off.
Use black or black shaded wallpapers. Use of shades of black everywhere will give you some extra juice after the end of the day.

Say “Bye” to the Live Wallpapers on your screen. These things are attractive. But these are the apps that will run consistently in the background. I don’t think that an active wallpapers is a very essential app. So turn off them and save some battery power for your Galaxy S4.
11. Airplane Mode
When you do not need the cellphone for a lengthy period, like when you are going to rest, put the cellphone in Airplane mode. Airplane mode will cut all the signal receivers and thus will preserve much power.
12. Power Saver Mode
Samsung Galaxy S4 has a built in power saver mode. When you are running out of battery, use this mode. It will cap the max CPU speed and limit the number of services to save juice.
