    Exclamation Battery - multiple issues - please help

    Hi, I'm new to this forum so sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    I've had my Galaxy S2 since February 2012, and up until about a month ago, it worked perfectly.

    I am now having multiple issues with the battery

    1. The phone battery (after lasting about 1 and a half days with good usage) now only lasts a matter of hours - much less than a day, from a full charge.

    2. The phone doesn't charge properly when switched on, and gets very hot (particularly the screen). It seems like it DRAINS power faster than it charges...Despite the charge symbol being there, it can take 12 hours for it to reach 100%, then as soon as it is unplugged, it has gone down to 20-30, because as mentioned before, it drains faster than it charges.

    3. The battery meter runs all over the place - i can take it off charge at 100%, and it can suddenly be 'critically low'.

    Do I need a new battery? The phone is under warranty I think, but I was just checking whether it could be an app/software issue before I take it into Phones4u.

    Thanks, any help would be much appreciated.

    Edit: Had the phone since Feb 2012, not 2011

    Hello AJM, welcome to the forum!

    If you've had your phone since February of 2011, I doubt it's still under warranty. Still, batteries are not that expensive and I'd certainly try buying a new battery as a starting point. Check Amazon for a low priced replacement.
