    No idea what is going on with this phone. I leave my home to go to a dinner at 5pm my phone says 80% battery. By 630pm with zero use my phone has shut off and flashes a low battery signal. I leave at 930 and plug my phone into my car, it immediately says 12%, two minutes later 40%, five minutes later 100%. I get home at 10pm unplug my phone from my car it's now at 93%. I take care of a few things and not 5 minutes later I go to pick up and use my phone and it's shut off and flashing the low battery and won't turn on again. WTF is going on. Sure wish I could pull the battery and do a hard reset right about now.

    If it was mine I would try running in Safe Mode. If the problems stop then they are caused by an app that you added. If they don't stop I would prepare for a return to the dealer.

    On a swap you are going to want to do a Factory Data Reset before returning it.

    I had mine go crazy a couple days ago. Ran down from 100% to shut down is 3 hours. Showed Empty battery, but when I plugged it into my auto charger it showed 100% full. Ended up deleting all new apps I had installed that morning and the battery's been fine ever since. Didn't reinstall any of the apps to determine what was causing the problem.

    Is there an app for detecting conflicting or excessive power using apps? I am having inconsistent days tho not as extreme as the OP. Except a couple of nights ago, I charged overnight on the turbo charger and it drained to zero % the next morning.
