    Nexus 5 switch off at 80 percent battery and getting horizontal lines

    Hi

    My nexus5 gets switched off once it reaches below 70 percentage and tries to start getting horizontal lines. After this I need to dry the battery to zero percentage keep it in a dry place for four days and again charge it and use it for working.. any solution for this.. 🤔

    How old is your Nexus 5? It sounds like the battery needs to be replaced with a new one.

    Its almost 3 years, but is there any way to check the battery status?? Also i have taken it to the nearby LG service center and the service guy gave me assurance it s not with the battery, and suggested it may be resolved if i change the complete board.

    Not sure how you would test the battery under load, which is what is happening when you use it, however a replacement battery is inexpensive, compared to a replacement motherboard. I would try the battery replacement first. Personally after watching the current debacle with LG and the Nexus 5x bootloops, I'm not sure I trust them all that much anyway. They seem to like throwing motherboards at problems as a quick fix.
