    Thinking or hope it's just battery. My 2 year old Note 4 original battery dies at anywhere between 20 to 40 percent battery life. Was told might be a software issue. What's anybody else experience with this. If is battery what brand battery did you replace it with and are happy with it.

    I ran into that problem about 6 months ago. My phone would shut down when it got to about 25-30% battery consistently.

    I replaced the original battery with an Anker battery from Amazon for about $20 and my phone has been working normally every since.

    For me this is the reason why replaceable batteries are so important. Had it been my wife's S6 I would have had to take it in somewhere to have the phone opened up and then hopefully put back together in one piece!

    Thanks Chet, I'm going to look into new battery to hopefully tide me over till Note 8. Was going to get a Note 7 but that went poof, now waiting for Note 8. I'll miss my Note 4 for its removable battery.

    The stock battery is just complete garbage. I got 2.5 hours on mine until it hit 50% and shut down.

    Yes this happened to me. Fixed with new battery then after 6 months started doing it again with new battery. Got another battery and turned off fast charging and haven't had the problem since. I think fast charging damages the battery.
