    I put a new battery on the 4s and on the screen there is only the drained battery animation. I plugged the phone on my computer but the phone does not turn on, I can only see the battery animation on the screen.

    Leave it on charge for a while. Battery could be entirely dead and the phone will not do anything until is gets some juice in it!

    If you can put it on a charger rather than USB on your computer.

    When I was draining my old iphone 4's battery, the phone would turn on after 10 minutes.

    Is this a battery certified by Apple? If not, then there's no point in comparing it to an Apple certified battery.

    10 minutes should do it.

    If not either the battery is defective or the battery install went bad.

    I would question the quality of that battery. New it should be in a stasis type state and holding a charge. You can use a program like ibackupbot on a PC or Mac to check it.

    Try with a real charger, the USB port has power management that can cap the sauce.
