New iPhone battery is still significantly degraded!!!

About six weeks ago I have a new battery put into my iPhone 7. The phone was telling me that the old battery was 'significantly degraded'. I cost me about $50.

Today, I noticed that the phone is telling me my new battery is also significantly degraded. I guess it's back to the Apple Store who did the original replacement.

Anybody else have this problem?

I noticed a significant reduction in battery life, about iOS 10 or so...

I Phone Battery

Just replaced the battery in IPhone 6s for 2nd time in 5 months. The replaced battery was "bloated" and warranty paid for its replacement. Thing about the replaced battery is there was no indication of a problem w/ the battery on the Settings App. Phone worked fine some of the time. Originally thought I may have a software issue.

I began to suspect a battery issue after certain apps "reset" the phone and upon phone reset, the battery percentage dropped excessively. Lesson learned....don't put too much faith in iPhone battery data under Settings.
