    I'm using the battery it came with and the charger and over night it usually goes down to 97% or 98%. On the lock screen it says its charged but when I go into settings it shows the battery not at 100% but says that it is full. Is this normal?

    I had that happen the first day the first time I put it on the charger. It was stuck at 99. I rebooted with it plugged in and it forced it to kick off and charge the last 1%. You might try that.

    Ive already rebooted several times. Its every time it charges it goes to 100% but then goes down some. If I unplug it and reconnect the charger it will charge all the way up but then it just goes down again.

    With lithium ion batteries, its bad for the battery to be at full and no charge. The chargers are therefore made to only charge close to full, but never all the way. From the lockscreen it shows full because most people don't know this and would rather see 100. From the battery stats it shows your true amount. You can 'bump' charge it if you like , but its bad for the phone. Bump Ƨharging is whenever it stops charging you just unplug ans replug the phone.
