Not a huge problem, but based on screen shot below (and battery is still not dead--who knows how much longer it will go), when my battery says 1%, it looks like it has at least 5% remaining. How many others have this issue? It's annoying because it creates the appearance of faster drain than I'm actually having. uploadfromtaptalk1391477709095.jpg

Run it dead and charge it back up. I think it is a common thing on this phone. I've done that and my drain appears normal now.

I've done that a couple times and it seems to be lasting longer and longer at 1% lol.

I never experienced that. I wish i did. I drained the phone down to 1% few times and every time it powered off aftew 2 minutes or so.

batteries are complicated and the methods used to measure them are weird.
temperature, voltage, amperage, projected usage and who knows what else all factor into the battery reading. the other day I was using my phone intensely. when i set it down and came back to it later, the battery reading had actually increased! so it's not a real measurement
