    Hey everyone!

    I realize that any number of things can affect how fast a phone's battery drains. However, this case feels a bit odd to me.

    In the middle of using my phone, it will randomly start hemorrhaging battery percentage. Today, for example, it went from 57% to 32% instantaneously (I was browsing Reddit and had no other apps open), and then lost a percentage point every second or so until it jumped from 15% to 0 and shut itself off. I plugged it in to charge, and once it was charging, it indicated that it was at 57%.

    This has happened four times now. The phone will 'die', but the second I plug it in to charge, it will be back to where it was before it died. I can unplug it and use it freely.

    It seems as though something responsible for monitoring battery life THINKS it is dying long before it actually does.

    My phone is a T-Mobile Revvl, for reference.

    Any thoughts?

    Welcome to Android Central! It sounds like a deteriorating battery. That kind of behavior is fairly common. Make sure all of your important data is synced or backed up somewhere, and consider looking into a battery replacement (or replacing the phone).
