    Well, i was watching some YouTube when my phone decided "hey pal, how about i just abruptly shut off without any warning prior so you worry about it". after it shut off, i had to plug it in, because it said "battery is too low".
    here are some pictures:

    (sorry, i would post some but imgur is kinda blocked here, long live net neutrality huh?)

    also my phone is a oneplus 5t and is around half a year old.

    yeah, im OP. i also thought that too, since it shouldn't do that right? the battery percentage / time chart is like a abrupt down to 0 percent in around 50. also its charging slow at thr moment. it normally charges quite fast at the low levels thanks to dash charge, but now its lile a turtle. hmm, maybe battery is still full but its showing as not full? i have magisk installed too. idk really...

    A vertical drop in the battery graph indicates a failed battery. It may for all I know indicate something else, such as a fault somewhere in the battery reporting, but I don't know that.
    People often post asking much the same question, describing how the phone suddenly shuts off when the battery reaches a certain percentage, so you're not alone in this.

    That graph says "dendrite" (Lithium Battery Dendrite links if you're interested) - the battery has to be replaced.
