    On my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 when i go on the internet or playing a game like Temple Run 2, Gangster Vegas, Flick Shoot 2 lots more and it only happens from when i have around 30-35% charge left and downwards for some bizzare reason the battery always drops a lot of charge sometimes it goes from lets say 34% to 18% or from 17% to 8% nearly every time even with the power saving mode being on and it usually happens when i have been leaving the Tab Pro 8.4 on standby for over a day and it is very very annoying and i have never had this problem before. :( :(

    And it never happens the battery dropping charge a lot when i watch videos and when i just leave the Tab Pro 8.4 on standby the battery drains normally!!

    So i was just wondering Why is the battery dropping a lot of charge??? is the Battery failling and how to fix it?? Or is it because that i have done a factory reset lots of the times so is that why the battery is failing or not working probably/dropping charge a lot??

    How to stop the battery dropping a lot of charge?? Has anyone had this problem before?? I really really need some help on this!!!

    By the way i have been using the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 for nearly 2 years now!!

    It is possible that your battery is getting old. If you find that your battery is draining very quickly or not holding a charge well, your battery may be nearing its end of life. One of my older phones, the battery was no longer holding its charge very well. That phone had a removable battery, so I could examine it. It was bulging which is an indication that the battery is bad. I'm not sure if you could actually do a physical examination of the battery in your tablet.

    Take the device in to have the battery checked. It sounds like it's capacity is getting low so it's not lasting as long as it used to. You'll get this same answer from most people on here since the device is two years old. The battery is likely the problem.
