Default Battery life normal?

Is it usual to have the battery drop to 99 or 98 percent immediately after unplugging it? I don't think I have an app that is taking up my battery. I'm averaging about 10-12 hours of use. Is that about normal? I'm running 3G on Sprint instead of LTE.

Yes it is and nothing to worry about.
I wish I could explain it better, but that's the way the charging system works
Now, if they only could come up with an SBC kernel......
