    I have a Samsung a20, about 18 months old, which works nominally 90% of the time; however, about once every other week when it gets to low battery (~30%) it will begin to discharge at a high rate, dropping to low or zero percent in about 15 minutes. This usually happens when I'm using a more battery intensive app, specifically pokemon go. I have screenshots of the battery drain but i cant seem to paste them into here, they look like normal battery drain until a sharp drop. Also i should mention ive heard this could be a sign of a failing battery, but since its a relatively new phone and it only happens infrequently i want to check its not something im doing. I have the phone in battery saver, and device care says theres nothing wrong. Thanks for your help.

    18 months isn't exactly "new" -- it depends on how you treat the battery. It can be helpful to install Accubattery and use that apps Battery Health feature to determine how your battery is doing.

    Playing intensive games will cause battery degradation quicker. Probably will need battery replacement soon .
