    Hello everyone,,
    I have a second hand note 5 and I tried replacing the battery twice now with OEM replacements from a somewhat reputable business. Both times the initial reported capacity was around 2800mAh and drops quickly from there with additional charge cycles. Both times the battery capacity dropped to sub 2000mAh levels. The second replacement is currently at 1600mAh. Is anyone else having this problem? I read that some phones require you to multiply the reported capacity by 2?

    The seller claims that no one else has reported a bad battery so he doesn't think he has a bad batch. The phone battery drains really quickly so I'm inclined to believe the low reported capacity. But I don't have anything to compare it to. Is anyone else having this problem?

    The seller is offering a third replacement battery and I'm not sure if I should try this batch of battery a third time. Any suggestions?

    Why not get the battery from Amazon? Are the batteries coming from the same source as your phone?

    I know this is an old thread. Just wanted to add that I had the same experience as the op. 2 replacement batteries from a somewhat reputable dealer who also didn't think he a bad batch and I was the only person complaining. I think he's lying and selling cheap defective batteries to the less tech savvy crowd. I just figured maybe accubattery want accurate. But I got another second hand note 5 and the battery life is similar to the replacement battery
