    I would stress again, if you are having battery problems I would shut it off now and not wait and let it charge to 100% unplug and use it till it hits 15 or 20% and then charge it fully again. But your choice indeed.

    Also you are not charging through USB on a computer right? You are using the stock wall charger?

    Raydee, go into setting, and battery info, and get us a screenshot... you do that by holding power and volume down. Perhaps it will help us to help you :)

    This would be my advice. These meters are really very fickle things and they can get pretty far out of whack, resulting in lying about the charge levels in both directions - has more than it says & has less than it says. The first one can result in it seemingly going from 30% remaining to completely dead in a matter of minutes. The second one can result in it appearing to be low, yet continue powering the phone for extended periods of time (in one example 8 hours playing music while showing 5% remaining the entire time).

    It's not unusual for the phone to consume more power for a while after such a sweeping update (and even after minor service updates), since there may be large caches of memory that were wiped clean in the process, various subroutines that were stored for later use that now have to be re-poplulated. Then there's various updates to software, email and account syncs, etc., so all told the phone typically consumes heavily for the first couple days.

    ALWAYS use the wall charger to be sure you are getting a full charge. Only use USB if you need to get a quick 10% to 20% boost.

    I normally only use the USB to take files off the phone. The only reason I tried it to charge the phone today was because the regular wall charger was not working correctly.

    Ok so the update is the phone finally got to 100% charge after 10 hours today. I am now using it like crazy to get it down to 15% so I can turn it off and give it a full charge over night. Cross your fingers ;)
