    Yikes. Does it get really warm when the battery drops like that? Do you have a battery monitor app like GSAM installed, to see if you can narrow down what might be using up that battery?

    Where / How did you get 4.3?

    Was there any check on the md5?

    You could try to revert to 4.2.2... If it still persists then it would point to a faulty chip in the battery.

    I guess It's because of a faulty battery. I've experienced the same until I replaced the battery by myself.

    I had this with my nexus 4 about a month ago.... The battery had basically burst open inside the phone... I took it to car phone warehouse and they replaced the battery for free under warranty. Although I did have to pay 20 pounds to get them to di it that day rather than wait 2 weeks...

    You're not the only one. This has suddenly started happening to me since the 4.3 update. I also have signal randomly drop out to nothing, then the screen locks and prompts me to enter Sim pass code. Once it has happened once it does it again more often, until eventually the moment I enter the code it locks again instantly so I literally cannot unlock it. When I try to restart the phone it turns on, says no battery and turns off... My phone is next to useless now and I get anywhere between 1-4 hours out of the damn thing.

    Seems too coincidental that its started happening since the update.

    When mine had this problem entering the screen lock password I found.after typing the pin if you hold the enter button for a second or two before releasing it the screen unlocked correctly. Its only a matter of time before the phone will stop working completely ( see the photo above)

    Have the same issue since last update.

    If I use camera app, it shuts down immediately... and for normal use after 4 hours it does that again. Most of the time language settings are lost, as well as WIfipassword.

    So the phone is useless since Android 4.3. Gonna see what they can repair under warranty, since this is probably a battery issue...

    Hi Catwooduk,

    My phone just started behaving the same way you described:

    "You're not the only one. This has suddenly started happening to me since the 4.3 update. I also have signal randomly drop out to nothing, then the screen locks and prompts me to enter Sim pass code. Once it has happened once it does it again more often, until eventually the moment I enter the code it locks again instantly so I literally cannot unlock it. When I try to restart the phone it turns on, says no battery and turns off... My phone is next to useless now and I get anywhere between 1-4 hours out of the damn thing."

    Did you find a fix for the problem?

    thanks in advance.
