    Just had my phone down to 1 percent in target. I shut it off and when I got in the truck with it still powered off I plugged it in. When I turned it on it was at 54 percent less than 10 mins from when I cut It off and plugged it in.

    I wouldn't have said any thing but the same thing happened to me yesterday. I had 24 percent rebooted with it plugged in and it jumped to 67 percent. I took a screen shot yesterday.

    Is this legit??

    I'll post the screen shot later the forums aren't letting me post now

    Someone else posted about this a while ago. Someone said they thought maybe battery life was reported based on average usage and rebooting may mess that up somehow. Yes the battery is at a certain voltage but if you don't use the phone it will last much longer than if you are browsing texting etc.

    I have noticed that too... that higher % also seems to drain way faster than normal. so I think something isn't reporting correctly

    I agree. Drains very quick but its still not like its 1 percent. If it was 1 percent I think it would cut off

    I've been noticing this as well. This phone either charges very quickly:) or is not reporting correct voltage as it charges/discharges. It does NOT suffer the same issues that the TBolt and DINC did where a reboot would cause a drop of at least 10 - 15%.

    Are you rooted? It might be interesting to wipe the battery stats and run it thru a complete discharge/charge cycle or two...

    Charge the phone completely - some recommend disconnecting the charger after it completes, waiting a few minutes, plugging back in, and waiting for it to complete.

    Remove /data/system/batterystats.bin - this can be done with Root Explorer, or by booting into ClockworkMod Recovery (if you've installed it).

    Reboot. A new batterystats.bin will be created.

    Run the phone down until it shuts off.

    Charge it completely.

    You should be good to go.
