Default Incorrect reading for battery after updated to 4.2.2

Hi, today I went to office, I can see the battery reading is 84% after one hour of use in the transportation. When I plug the phone to the charger it shows 100% immediately (Charge so quickly isn't it ? ). It remains 100% even I reboot the phone. Did anyone meet this bug?

Never seem it but try a factory reset. I always do one after a system update.

It's likely nothing is wrong. After every ROM flash, the battery calibration always messes up a bit. Just use the phone normally and the calibration will fix itself after a couple charge cycles. If you want to fix it sooner, run the battery down and charge it again.

That will happen with any/all N4's at some point. More commonly the battery will lie to you, forget to update battery level during deep sleep, etc... Your phone isn't "broken".

i had the same problem with you guys..because of the TWRP... my phone charged 100%, rebooted in recovery and then i saw only 92%.. i change twrp with cmw,and everything is cool now...but i see my battery to do the following :82,80,73,74 etc...wihout heavy use.. is our battery a little wonky or i just my idea..?

you can calibrate your battery with the following app

not 100% sure if it really works,but you can have a try "gonna need to be rooted'
  • Phone: LG Nexus 5 D821
    ROM:CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies
    Recovery:TWRP 2.7.0.0
    Kernel: ElementalX
  • Tablet: ASUS Nexus 7 FHD
