    Default Battery Calibration?

    So my phone over the past few weeks has been having a shorter battery life, in terms of display. It can last quite a while on 1% which I believe it's not supposed to be occurring.


    So three times I've tried fully charging the phone and then using all the battery until the phone shuts down, and then re-charging it to 100%. But somehow, that does not calibrate the phone. I still see rapid battery lose throughout the day and then a long period of it being on 1%.


    Is there anything else I can try?

    Well, try one thing go to the settings> battery and check which application is consuming most of the battery power if its the Android system or the Device screen then i think the problem lies inside the battery if its still under the warranty then get it replaced otherwise I am afraid but you need to purchase a new battery.

    SOLUTION FOUND

    After digging up more information on what the problem could be, I found the culprit to be Gmail's syncing of my email. I went to the App Info and cleared both the cache and data. Then I restarted my phone.

    My battery is working as good as it did before.
