You should try this method if you are sure beyond a reasonable doubt that the problem is a software issue. The title can be confusing to some tech geeks because the battery is simply hardware and cannot be calibrated, but there is an inclusion of a printed circuit board that helps with the relation of the battery to the android firmware.

Calibrating the battery in this sense means that you are directing the operating system to correct information that shows the percentage the battery is at a point in time.

Depending on your familiarity with the android operating system, the process can be done in three ways, which are:

This method is a reliable method for users that do not desire to void the warranty of their phones and other properties ascribed to rioting android phones. To calibrate your phone without root access, follow these steps

  • Let your phone discharge till it turns itself off
  • Try and turn it off and let it switch itself off
  • Charge your phone continuously until it reaches 100% (you can check the LED light if you phone supports it, or check without powering on the device
  • Remove the charger
  • Power on your phone. Do not be surprised when the indicator says your battery is not 100%. Charge your device while still on until it says that the battery is 100% while on
  • Remove the charger and restart your phone
  • If after restarting it does not say 100% start charging till it reaches 100%on screen
  • Repeat the cycle until you have a 100% or something very close when you power with on without plugging the charger

This method must not be continuously done because it can lead to the destruction of the battery

Therefore, it might work for your phone. The process can be likened to the process mentioned above, just that the presence of root helps in making it more reliable

  • Let your phone discharge till it turns itself off
  • Try and turn it off and let it switch itself off
  • Charge your phone continuously until it reaches 100% (you can check the LED light if you phone supports it, or check without powering on the device
  • Remove the charger
  • Power on your phone. Do not be surprised when the indicator says your battery is not 100%. Charge your device while still on until it says that the battery is 100% while on
  • Remove the charger and restart your phone
  • If after restarting it does not say 100% start charging till it reaches 100%on screen
  • Repeat the cycle until you have a 100% or something very close when you power with on without plugging the charger
  • Install the app Battery Calibration and restart
