Question expected battery life - 8520 Curve

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings -

I've owned my 8520 Curve for ~20 months.
Original battery.

In the past week, battery life has degenerated markedly.
Lucky to eke out a day with minimal use.
Previously, charging every two days ('average' use)
to five days (minimal use) was the norm.

Battery pulled out & re-inserted.
WiFi off, only the standard 5 apps running.
Deleted FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn.

Do batteries degenerate that quickly?

And, if so, is there a recommended vendor from whom to obtain
a bona fide replacement?
(It seems that there are many counterfeits on Amazon.)

Thanks,

- Richard
