Default Battery gets to 20% and dies within two mins

Every day, the phone gets to about 20% and then straight up falls to 14% - 9% - 4% and then dead within a two minute time span. If I connect to the charger it jumps right back to 20% only to die near instantly if I disconnect the charger. What could be the problem here? I use my phone all day every day, could I have simply used up the battery?

Try looking up battery calibration. There's some stuff around saying that you should drain to 0 then charge all the way (with power off). I've also heard doing that then pressing and holding the power button for two minutes straight does something, but I'm not sure.
