Yesterday I experienced a weird behaviour...
I was using my Moto G and it was with 74% battery. I connected it to my macbook using the usb cable and when I disconnected it the battery instantly dropped to 0% and the phone turned off!



After that I charged it again and so far so good. But I wonder what could have caused this behaviour?
I have never saw something like that before.

I had the same problem a few hours ago. It suddenly dropped and shut down itself. I started the phone again and it is still at 1% since 5 hours. I guess this is related to a bad battery calibration because I've unplugged it during the first charge for a moment (I have the phone since yesterday).

i used to have the exact same issue with my Galaxy S2. it would freeze and then reboot or i would have to force restart only to lose about 50% battery. when i sent it back to Samsung, i think they replaced a circuit inside.

Went to sleep last night, phone at 78%, woke up, phone dead. It won't charge either.

Maybe you should send it in to get it looked at by someone

I'll be sending it back for a return, but worried about private data on the phone that I can't clear.

edit: I managed to boot it up and do a factory reset.

I could always get another. The issue may haunt the device over time, it's not worth it for such a day old phone.
