This is not a complaint or a problem requiring fixing, but some curiosity. Does anyone else's phone lie about how long till full? Last night it said 10 minutes till full at 96%. I looked away for maybe 2 minutes and it was 100% charged. I thought maybe the battery could need to be drained and recalibrated but no, it drained normally. Took like 5-10 minutes of facebook scrolling to go down maybe 1%. Used it down to 35% today at work listening to spotify and playing games on my breaks. This was probably 96%-35% over almost 10 hours, so I don't think I have a battery problem, it just does not display eta of the charge correctly?
The reasoning behind all this is I'm trying to practice good Li-Ion health and not charge it fully. I usually get it to around 95% and unplug it. I don't charge it all night, and give it a boost on the way into work in the car. Im using the PD 2.0 fast charger it came with at home, but a older Samsung fast charger in the car from the S8 era.

Trust the shown percentage and not the time remaining 😊
