    Hi,
    Hoping to get some tips ro feedback about this issue. For the last couple of weeks, my phone has reliably lost the last 15% of battery in a minute or so. This is regardless of if I am using the phone actively or just leaving it on the bench looking at it. If I plug it in to charge at 14%, then it will drain down to 0% before juicing up again.
    I have attempted to use a system monitor app to evaluate my battery health but it reports it as 99%. The phone is 22 months old. It has copped a fall or two but the issue hasn't reared until the last few weeks.
    Any tips on other options to problem solve/trouble shoot?
    Haven't tried a full reset yet as I wanted to exhaust the less painful options first.
    Cheers

    I had a similar issue with my S8, it would go from 25% to nothing almost instantly. Getting a new battery fitted fixed it.
