Anyone know how to recalibrate the battery on the Nexus 6P or Android phones in general?, I'd used a low amp charger once and from that moment every time I plug in the fast charger it states "3 hours until full" sometimes 4 or 2 hours, when charging from 10%, and yes, it's agonisingly slow to charge, I tried leaving the battery to drop to 5%, then it said "1 hour 20 minutes until full" and fast chraging did work properly for a while, then things went bad again. I recently completely drained the battery till the device turned off, then charged the phone fully while it was turned off, turned it back on, still says "4 hours till full", and yes, "fast" charging is no longer fast anymore. Any ideas? Thanks guys.

- Yes I listened this morning, makes you wonder if they have cut corners on quality with the battery. What annoys me is now all phones pretty much are sealed and that's fine. But we are going to have millions of perfectly good working phones being rendered useless because the batteries are knackered and we will be forced to get a new one.Jul 13, 2017
- Hmm sorry Ahmed, I felt sure that would work. :(
My S6 edge battery is getting worse. I can squeeze 8hrs out of it. Fortunately I can charge it wherever on a car (van charger) and I carry a back up 15000mah charging pack for emergencies.
Come back user replaceable batteries is what I say!Jul 13, 2017

- I remember back when I use to tinker there was a setting in the android recovery that would reset the the battery stat. I think it's simply named clear battery stats. Not sure if it still exists. Most likely is that the battery is gone bad.
It is annoying that when you have a perfectly capable phone that gets ruined by a dying battery. Especially in this age of non replaceable battery phones where you can really just pop into your local phone shop and get it replaced like back in the days.Jul 13, 2017
- Suits the manufactures fine if the battery is buggered after 2 years or so, it wouldn't be so much of a problem if you fancied doing a DIY battery replacement but trying to get a new battery for most of today's phones is pretty much impossible as far as I know.Jul 13, 2017
- Try with another charging cable. It appears that it isn't charging properly. Slow charger or fast doesn't require calibration. Sticking a battery in that's twice as big requires a few cycles.
Something else you could check for is whether there is any lint stuck in the c port which could affect the connection.
Take it you've done a few restarts already.Jul 14, 2017
