    If it is dying at that percentage, it sounds like the battery is unfortunately on its way out. Grab a new one!

    Mine is going dead at 30% when prior to this month it was lasting longer. Tried uninstalling apps but still doing..I have abbreviation battery coming in the mail.
    Its concerning me because more and more phones aren't equipped with removable batteries. And that's not good

    I was having the same issue with my battery dying at 24%. I bought a new battery and followed the charging cycle that was recommended(no slow charge and let the battery drain for a couple cycles) Well day one the new battery died again at 24%, day 2 it died around 15% and now the last 2 days it dies at 34%. Not sure where to go from here. My OS is 5.0.1 and my phone has been trying to update but always fails. Is it a phone issue or still battery?

    I bought a cheap "Samsung" battery which I doubt was really Samsung, or else a refurb sold as new since the same thing kept happening. Then I bought a set of ankers and they've been working great.

    Has this problem been fixed in newer phones or are we going to see a lot of super cheap note 5s in a few months?

    Same boat here.
    The only difference is it fluctuates. Once it hits 20%, it will randomly shut off at any given time. Sometimes it'll go from 20 to Critical, then it turns OFF when I plug it in.

    I was hoping a cache / partition reset and factory reset would help, but it didn't. The first 70% is fine. I don't normally let the phone drop that low, but in the off chance I'm out on the town I wouldn't want it to randomly shut off, so I bought a new one.

    I'll retire the old one completely after I use it to install Marshmallow. It's barely a year old, so I'll preserve some charge cycles on my new one for a little while longer.

    Are droid turbo batteries failing a year in as well? I think it's bull, that after a year (halfway through the payment plan) the battery takes a dump.

    Most phones will start to see some impact on battery life (based on how much you use it) within a year or so. The battery tech is really rated to have 70-80% of capacity after a few hundred charges, so if you use the battery a lot like I do, you'll see that 20-30% drop in battery life easily within a year. On my last two phones (Moto X and X 2014), that basically meant going from "can get through the day and dinner out when necessary" to "it's 3PM, do you know where your charger is?"

    Many people wouldn't even really notice the drop in battery life, since car chargers and chargers at our desks are pretty readily available. But go on an all-day meeting or any activity away from a charger, and it's noticeable.

    I keep hoping against hope that the Note 7 gets a swappable battery. I know it won't - but I keep hoping. Because devices that cost this much money should not be held hostage to the wear and tear of a $20 part.

    Where did you buy the battery? Was it an original Samsung battery? The AC store has them on sale for $15.95 right now. These are Samsung OEM batteries. I use them and they work just fine.

    I posted a link a day or two ago where they are on sale for $8.99 on eBay, original OEM batteries just like you pay double for on AC. I bought two of the eBay batteries myself, top quality.

    The LINK you posted are for "unbranded generic" batteries. They don't appear to be Samsung OEM batteries... but "compatible" ones.

    Oh sorry. Those aren't the ones then. Mine were $11.95. Guess the seller isn't selling the OEM ones anymore. I wouldn't buy the ones in that link. I didn't read the description. I just assumed they were the same since they were the same seller.

    Here's the two $11.99 batteries I bought from that seller. They were $11.95 each.

    Here they are:

    New Original Samsung 3220 mAh Battery for Galaxy Note 4 EB BN910BBUSTA | eBay

    Still the same $11.99 price. I'm sorry I didn't look closer at what I was posting previously. These are from a different seller but the same battery as what I posted in the pic above.

    No, it does't help if you buy a new battery or do a full-hard factory reset. It just keep turning off.

    Has this problem been fixed in newer phones or are we going to see a lot of super cheap note 5s in a few months?
    Are you still happy with your new ankers batteries? I'm looking at refurbished OEM

    The ankers were great, with a pair of batteries and a charger at work I almost never plugged it in to charge. But then my note 4 died last month from the mmc bug

    What is the mm bug?

    My old Note would die at 30% so i ordered a new Samsung OEM battery with portable charger from Sprint.com for around $25.00. Ordered another yesterday too!

    There are exceptions, but in general a symptom of "when my phone dies at [insert percentage above 0% here]" means the battery has developed some chemical/mechanical problem.

    Buying a new battery of known-good quality is an inexpensive way to diagnose (and nearly always solve) the problem.

    Anker and Samsung OEM are both great. The only real problem with Samsung OEM is that a lot of sellers sell fake ones that are not built to the same spec - so maybe you get a great battery at an excellent price, or maybe you saved ten bucks and ended up with a dud that will end up convincing you that your perfectly good Note 4 is toast, which would be a waste.

    An Anker is like $17 on Amazon. Personally, I have no qualms paying $10 more for a known-good product when I'm talking about breathing another year of new life into my phone which would cost me at least $150 to find a good replacement on Swappa.
