Battery life suddenly dropping


The life of the battery in my G4 play is suddenly decreasing. I can barely make it to the end of the day and that’s with pretty minimal use. I used to end the day with at least half a charge.

I charge it overnight, every night and start the day with a full charge. I’ve already turned off Bluetooth. The phone appears to sleep when not in use (screen is dark).

The battery (and phone) is almost 2 years old. Is this normal end of life behavior, or is something sucking this dry?

If I need a replacement, they seem cheap enough. But are there brands I should be wary of?


It could be either. You might try running in safe mode to rule out a rogue third party app.
