I've had my nexus 4 for about 6 months and started having battery problems about 2 months back. My phone would just get worse and worse as time went on. It would randomly die when the battery was at 40% and would only get 2 hours of sot. Later it got worse and died at 70% getting only about 1 hour of sot. Now it got to the point where its unusable without a charger, if I unplug it the phone will last for 30 minutes max and then shut down. When I try to reboot it after it dies like this it boots up and instantly dies after about 5 seconds. Sometimes the phone reboots while it is plugged into the charger, while unplugged the phone instantly dies if I take a photo especially with flash. I tried resetting the battery by unplugging it and plugging it back. I noticed that the battery has expanded in size, even making my back cover not flat anymore. My question is if I replace the battery will this solve my problems?

The exact same thing happened with my current phone. Yes getting a new battery will fix this problem. Something is just messed up with the battery. Nothing wrong with the actual phone itself.

I live in canada, I got my new battery from gocellular.ca

Did it look like it was new and original? Because you have to be very careful with the batteries if you buy a fake one its almost like buying a bomb. I don't think I can buy from the site if I am in US. I am looking at this site http://www.wirelessground.com/lg-bl...ogleproducts&gclid=CJaS-vvJ9LgCFSZp7AodjFcALw it seems like its a quality product and not a fake and costs about the same as the site you suggested

Yes it looked perfectly new and works just fine. Hasn't blown up on me yet :p That site looks legit. You should be good. You can always call them if you're in doubt.
