Default replace battery?

Hello..I had my Galaxy S2 for 10 months

and I think my battery life is not normal. (bad battery life)

Just today I figure that my phone's battery is draining 1% in every 10 minutes while not doing anything. If I do something with my phone, I think it's going to drain faster

I was over charging the phone (kept the phone plugged when it's 100%), and now, I assume that is the reason why battery is draining so fast.
I didn't try the factory reset, but I don't think that would help :O
I didn't use juice Defender until now, but I don't think it's doing anything.

should I replace the battery? or is this normal?

I think that is a little high. When I'm not using my phone during 8 hours at work I'll use about 25% of the battery. When I'm at home my phone is usually plugged in the charger all the time. I don't think that would cause your problem. Has it always done this? Have you downloaded any apps that may be causing it?

Read this post and try some of the suggestions he gives. Maybe it will help.

Yeah I think ICS 4.0.4 is a little better on battery.

I just upgraded mine to ICS, and I tried the link you gave me, and I thought that is all that battery apps necessary..

Apex launcher seems to stutter with Kakaotalk(massenger app)
I might just stick with the basic touch wiz..

I installed all of the battery saving apps except Juice defender, and feels like it drains more battery than before.. :O.. also.. I don't know how to use those apps lol..

I have to wait and see for sure..

Its usually a good idea to do a factory reset after an upgrade. Something to keep in mind if you have problems. I think I would do a factory reset and not install any of the battery saver apps until you see how it does.
