    My battery was at 1% then I plugged it to a charger and went to 3%. Is that normal? I swear it should hit 2% before going to 3%?

    It's not unusual for something like that to happen.

    Don't worry about that. It's normal. Think of the battery gauge as a rough estimation instead of a hard factual data point.

    Reminds of the fuel gauge on my old cars. I'd have half a tank on a level road. Going up a steep hill, I'd have near a quarter tank. Going down a steep hill I'd have 3/4 tank.

    Yes it's perfectly normal.

    One suggestion. If you are paranoid about the % going up and stuff, I suggest you just turn off the battery % indicator and move on with your life. I turned off my % on my 6S Plus and never even looked at my battery % and by the end of day it's still at 85% with 3 hours of usage.
