I am using Xperia ZR . Recently this handset was dead due to water ingression, Sony service centres refused to service it.Then I did my research and was successful, I found one local repair store.
Now my handset is working but I lost the camera.
Due to water contact battery was also affected. After repairing the repairer put some crapy duplicate battery.
This Battery drains very fast.Discharges instead of charging while using on 3G mode/gaming.
Is this battery problem or handset(motherboard) problem.
Will this problem solve after putting original battery BA950?

After water damage this might be both - if you have a short circuit somewhere on the board from water deposits (salt), it might be draining your battery. In addition, replacement OEM batteries are 99% crap.

Sometimes after restarting the phone battery level indicator drops down like 20-30% or even more.i.e before restaring phone,say battery level is 30% and then after restarting it drops to 7%.Sometimes it suddenly restarts on its own.
Should I purchase Battery from Sony service centre or not?

Yes, you probably should, if you want the phone functional.
