Cell phone batteries wear out over time. Usually they have maybe a year, or 500 charges in them.

Also, your phone could have been on roaming, which drains the battery. Your phone uses more battery when it's searching for a connection (be it roaming, wifi or 4G) than when it's actually made a connection.

You might have to go get a new phone or go to where you got the phone and ask them to replace it if your phone has a warranty on it

What? Why? If you crash your car or demolish your home do you go to your car dealer, or the contractor company that built the house and demand a new one of each? No. Obviously if you use something and it builds up wear and tear, you then have to be responsible to replace it. That is just how the world works.

it could be that you need a new battery. batteries can lose their ability to hold a charge over time if it has been charged and recharged over and over again. symptoms of this happening are: if your phone loses power just after you have charged it, and if it only takes a short amount of time to charge your phone(like maybe15 minutes)

either you bought an used phone that doesnt have much battery life left or you already used the battery . dont expect much from a phone it might have, say 8 h of battery wich is what it said on mine when i bought it but lasted only 4-5 hours. there isnt much that you can do about this.

Despite the fact that most technology is advancing rapidly today, batteries are still an achilles heel. They seem to be at least three steps behind the other technological advances of the devices that we use today. By this I mean, you can still only get so many charging cycles through a battery before it starts to go bad. That being said, if you are in places that are extremely cold or humid, most rechargeable batteries will die quicker. Depending on how old this device is, you should probably price out new batteries for that phone, and if they cost too much, just replace the device.

It could be that you are charging your phone for long amounts of time, after its done, and also you could have apps running in the background.
try putting your phone lightning down and that will help with battery charge

one other idea...when you charge your at say like 50% charge all the time, your battery life is shorter. try fully charging your phone, then do not charge it again until it is completely dead. do this several times in a row, and if the battery is not worn out, you should see a big increase in your phone's battery life. if you read the instructions on new phones, the manufacture recommends this with the start up of your phone. good luck, i truly hope your battery is not wearing out, but with many phones, you can replace the batteries, but they are fairly expensive.
