    A few software updates ago, I noticed that my phone hasn't been accurately showing the battery percentage even after more software updates (now Android 6.0.1). For example, when it gets down to 5% or even 1% and I plug it in, it will then say 10% or 15%.
    This isn't a huge problem for me because it just makes me plug my phone in sooner, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if this is a common thing or just a small glitch with my phone?
    Thanks

    First, dropping a lithium battery below 40% is asking for a bad battery. Second, once you get below 20%, you're off the curve (there's a graph that shows the percentage of charge as the variable and the terminal voltage as the constant), so the phone is working as designed - below 40% you're getting unusable readings.
