Alright, so i was one of the unlucky few to get the 8300 the week it came out from Cingular/ATT. (Soon afterwards came the 8310, which i was SUPER pissed about) but thats besides the point. I have had this phone AND battery since then.
Now i have never REALLY had that bad of a problem with the battery. At most maybe just short battery life.
But the last few weeks my battery is HORRIBLE.
Just today, i charged my phone all night, woke up and went to my college. It had not been off the charger for more than an hour when it went dead. After 5 shut downs (0% battery each time) it came up with 75% battery?? yeah weird.
Went fine all day then when i was walking to my car it shut off in my pocket.. it restarts three times, i say screw it and plug it in the charger in my car. It had 0% battery. I brought it home charged it until 20% and took the battery out to take the pictures below. I turn it back on... 100% full.
Weird or am i just crazy? Below is a picture of the battery and the connectors of the phone. Can anyone give me some good judgement on whether its the batteries time to go?
