That's a calibration issue. The phone isn't shutting off early, but the meter is telling you that you have more left than you really have.

It's also a lot more common across different phones than you think.

In my experience the worst cases usually recalibrate after the shutdown. There are recipes for recalibration, but I don't have the confidence in them to suggest one, so will leave that to someone else.

I know from experience that my meter is calibrated OK, but for the good of the battery I try never to let it run down that low anyway.
