Default is it just me (Battery problem)

I have had this z1 for about 2 month now and found this very weird problem with it.

a month ago my phone was shutting off at about 4 percent battery left,
now it's shutting off at 9 percent.

it looks like it might shut off at 13 percent next month, 20 percent in two month....

does anyone have same issue and fix for it? or i am just gonna send the phone in for repair

Have you got a custom rom installed. Cause if you do than maybe your battery just needs calibrating:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...erycalibration

The app requires root access.

You could also go into your dialer type *#*#7378423#*#*
Then go to "Service Tests" and "Battery Health test" and see if your battery is in good health

Yep, this should help because you have to calibrate the battery and let it make a few full cycles.
IF I HELPED DO NOT SAY THANKS, CLICK IT.

My phone is not rooted, everything is stock without single update installed (still on 4.2.2).
Battery health says
Good no need to replace or something like that..

Well, in this case just try to charge it to full and then discharge to 0, this should help.

Try updating your rom. It won't hurt. It can only improve
