Battery dies at random percentages

    Samsung Note 4, roughly 16 months old.

    So, I've been having this problem for a while, I'll charge my phone to full, unplug it and start using it, then it'll die anywhere between 20%-60%. It doesn't do this all the time, it's very random.

    I decided to try getting a new battery, I bought a genuine Samsung battery, as didn't want to get a cheap replacement. Low and behold, it happened again last night. Went to bed full charge, unplugged it, went sleep. I awoke to a dead phone.

    So, does any one have any suggestions as to what I do? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    If it's a software error, a factory reset should fix it. If that doesn't work, reflashing stock firmware. However, if that still doesn't work, it's a hardware error and the phone would need repair. If you'll reset or reflash, remember to backup your data.

    I went back to a Samsung store, for another problem i was having a few weeks back, and they did a reflash of the firmware.

    I guess I'll have to try a factory reset.

    and it is my guess, that right there, is the crux of your problem. you got a bad flash....
    go back and complain, and insist that you get it reflashed and then start all over.

    if that don't fix it, get it replaced.

    There's a pretty good chance if it's a bad flash a factory reset won't fix it. A reflash would be better.
