hi, when did you start using this phone? My old S2 is about 2 years old and the stock battery barely lasts a day and can not hold a charge since last year December. Getting a new battery may help.

What is the model number of the phone? Do you know if the battery is a lithium-ion type?

It does sound like the battery is the culprit and will need replacing. But that will be expensive.

Li-ion are great batteries, but are not as robust as older types.

The battery pack itself contains a sophisticated computer to monitor the battery (voltage, temperature etc) and regulate charging.

Lithium ion batteries age and last around 2 or 3 years irrespective of whether they are used or left on a shelf.

The batteries are very sensitive to heat and will degrade much faster at temperatures above 30oC. Human body temperature is 380C so keeping a phon in your jeans pocket etc. is not a good idea.

Li-ion can also be overcharged (left on charge for an extended period), this can also destroy the battery. So definitley not a good idea to let that happen.

And they don't like being completely discharged and if that happens they will be rendered useless.

If you buy a new battery, make sure the manufacture date is recent. i.e. it has not sat on a shelf or in a store room for a long time.
