    My phone would not charge past 54%. Figured I would burn all bridges...#0228#, cleared cache, allowed the battery to completely die, then pulled the battery and reseated it. I am not sure which of these things did the trick but my Note 4 is now charging fully.

    hello,
    for about 3 days I have a slightly different issue : I turn off the phone at night and put it on charge - before I switch it on, it shows 100% charge - when I switch it on, it immediately shows 92% charge

    but if I then let it be on and connect it to the charger again, it goes to 100% and keeps the charge as it has always done...

    still I worry things might get worse
    I'll try to drain the battery, take it off and put it back on, as some of you have done....

    Did anyone ever find a sure fix for this?

    Exactly the same issue, after updating to 6.0.1 my Note 4 battery only charges to 84%. Like others if I remove the battery and reinsert it then shows 100%. I have tried clearing cache, *#0228# code, several calibration apps and methods but nothing has worked. I have a new battery coming but have doubts after reading comments. I have not tried a full system restore as again, nothing points to this working. Only other possible solutions are installing Kies 3 and try reflashing the 6.0.1 firmware incase something is corupt, or rollback to an earlier firmware entirely manually

    I am pretty upset, I've only had my Note 4 one year and love it dearly, now a Samsung update has reuined it with what appears no genuine fix anywhere around the Internet.

    If you had the problem and found a genuine solution please (please) let me know, its been going on over a week now for me.

    Update:

    After installing the brand new Samsung battery I'm now able to charge my Note 4. I have completed 3 charges so far able to reach 100% without any issue. I've also noticed my battery life is exceptionaly better. The old battery did show a slight bloating but not extreme enough for it to spin freely doing the table top test.

    I guess in my case I was lucky a new battery has proven to work, so far so good.

    Wish anyone else with this issue the best of luck.

    I have also the same problem, 6 hours charging and sometime 64, 58, and 57
    Once I tried to remove the battery and put it back in and the percentage went from 57 to 81, and charged to 100. But the next day again only charged to 60 only.

    the default battery is awful. Get a ZeroLemon 10,000 mAh

    It makes it thicker and easier to hold.

    That just probably means that your battery is going out, and turning off location is probably lowering drain on the system enough to make the voltages more predictable and allows it to charge fully. For now. Eventually that workaround will fail and you'll have to do more weird things until the battery stops charging entirely.

    A good replacement battery (Anker is my personal favorite) is like $20. If you start having battery issues, IMHO it's much, much easier to replace it and save yourself a lot of hassle.

    The phones are old, even if new. Note 4 is almost 4 years old.
    The batteries are meant to last a year or 2 at most. that's the natural life span of a Li-Ion battery. At 4 years old, Li-Ions are dead and need to be replaced.
    It's not a device that works indefinitely. A battery can only take about 1500 charges (plus/minus) before it fails.
