HTC One Battery Not Charging/Holding Charge
I've had the HTC One since the day it came out and up until a few weeks ago the battery life was consistently amazing.
Over the past 2-3 weeks that's all changed. Every morning the battery isn't fully charged and according to my phone it will say the battery is somewhere between 35-75% charged although it was on the charger port all night. Then the phone will die randomly regardless of what the battery percentage says it's at. Sometimes it will get down to 15-20% and die other times it will just shut off at 70% with no low battery warning.
When I check the battery usage it shows Android is using some ridiculous amount of battery power, currently it says 97% - I never really checked this before the issue so don't know if this is normal. I have power saver enabled and even with wi-fi and bluetooth turned off the battery still drains incredibly rapidly. I'm on Android 4.3
In summary the phone isn't charging to full, is not holding the charge at all and possibly the battery life indicator on the phone is giving a false reading (i'm using the default one included with the phone).
Has anyone else had this issue and is there a fix other than replacing the battery? I've seen a video of it being done and it's absolutely not something I could do myself. I'm thinking of trying to reset my phone to factory defaults, anyone know if that would help? I'd hate to clear all my data and lose my texts, game save files etc if the issue will just continue.
My phone is basically unusable now as I never know when it's going to die, whether I'll get 20 minutes of use out of it or 2 hours is just a gamble. I'll do what I can to fix it otherwise I'll be forced to use an old phone until I have an upgrade a year and a half from now

Re: HTC One Battery Not Charging/Holding Charge
Mine is having similar issues (among others)
Contact HTC, they'll have you send it in under your factory warranty and replace it for you
