I have had this note for about 6 months and am having some issues with battery life
1. I notice that my battery% changes when I restart my phone
2. It just drains incredibly fast about 1% every 2 or 3 minutes
3. I Thought it was a worn out battery, so I ordered a new one but it drains almost as quickly.

Battery drains are never easy to diagnose, but a few starting points can be checking your battery report and seeing what are the top 5 'consumers'. Usually location services can drain your battery quite fast, so check to see if you have any app using High-accuracy location services too much.

GSam Battery Monitor gives you a more in-depth analysis of what's running in your phone, but requires just as much analysis from you to actually make sense of the information it provides. But it's a start and you can always post the list here and me might help with finding out the culprit.

Here is a screenshot of my battery usage, looks pretty average if you ask me.
I am wondering if there is just an issue with my phone reading the percentage or something
ps. My location settings are always on "power saver"

Can we take a look at the graph from the system? The one that says how long it's been on and the top consuming apps?

Also, if this is a newer phone, you could try 'recalibrating' the battery readings. Charge it to 100%, let it run down to 0% (it's not actually 0, the phone will shut itself down before that), recharge to 100 and use as normal. That will usually give a more accurate reading if you think your phone is giving out 'wrong' information.
