Default Nexus 4 Battery

So I have nexus 4 with battery that was bad it basically would die at 18% just shut off. So I replaced with new battery and I charged it right away to 100% and did battery calibration as soon as I unplugged it it said 79% every time then I plug it back it and it instantly counts and climbs back to 100% within min and once it hits 100% it fine it will drop normal I'm not sure if I shouldn't have done a battery calibration to brand new it like it remembering old battery now it does this every charge cycle it annoying.

There's absolutely no need to calibrate the N4's battery. You just don't need to.

Better put back the original battery and try this:
1. Leave your phone to turn off cause of battery drain
2. Immediately reboot at fastboot mode and leave it alone for some time, till it gets off again. This is the real point 0 of battery.
Now charge it till 100% without using it.

After that use it normally and inform is if IT got any better.
