    Try fully charging then calibrate battery with batter calibration app from market.

    Ok so it's just your new battery may be defective.
    Does it have same rating as old?
    You could charge battery and leave charging for a hour or so after it says charged
    Then use phone till it shuts off

    You could try app battery left
