Quick question guys. I noticed after removing the phone from the charger the battery drops pretty quickly to around 90%, give or take. Then it's a normal drain from there. I leave it on the charger for about 30mins after the light turns green, then unplug it. Anyone else experiencing this and is it normal? Thanks.

This is the only smart phone I have owned so far that I can actually use and still make it through the day, very impressed to get so much battery life out of a 2600mah battery,

Not unusual but if it's persistent I would drain the battery dry. Meaning til it turns off because it has to. I don't recommend doing this often. I try to charge my battery 20% and up. And you can add more longevity keeping the battery 20<>80%. And by longevity I mean the life of the battery itself. Today is my m8's one month birthday. I going to try charging to 100% whether it's before I goto bed and see if I can make it the next 24h or so, or when I goto bed and just pull out then. I want to try to reduce my 100% charges. Oh and since I got a little off topic, I had my battery percentage sticking at random percentages for up to 20mins but nothing other unusual happening. Since I drained it dry and charged back to 100% this has happened a lot less often.

App usage was low because I was mostly reading. When I'm not reading my app usage is around 48%.

Thanks for the detailed response. But it looks like my device is defective, my camera just quit working and I randomly lose 10% to 15% battery out of nowhere. Also seems pretty laggy/buggy too. I did a master reset, didn't install a single app and there's no change. Oh well, time to contact tmobile.
