Why Does My Battery Go Down So Quickly?

My Galaxy S3 Mini that my dad gave me yesterday after upgrading doesn't last more than two hours. It has been running strong for almost three years and now once it's factory reset it just went "fu©k this sh¡t" and started draining quickly. It charges relatively fast but can't stand consistent plugging. Please help!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Probably the update makes your phone use more background processes, or the updated OS is too much for the phone's hardware capacity. Also, you can try replacing the battery, it might be near its end of life. If nothing works, you can downgrade the phone's software, there're plenty of tutorials on youtube, or guides on google that can help you do it.

Sounds like a bad battery to me. Better get it replaced first.
