    I have never seen my iphone on 60%,30% or 27% , it never shows that percentages for example when its on 61% after a few minutes it instantly drops to 59%, does anyone knows what's wrong with it or how to fix it?

    I would suggest, settings-->general-->usage-->battery percentage and turn it off. This will give you time to use for something else during the day.

    I tried that but then i stucked with no power on phone in required moment, so i want to check the battery percentage no matter other things you consider are better to do in that micro-seconds, but anyway in some ways you are right but thats another subject
    Now what i wonder is if there is a hardware issue because i noticed that battery drains fast recently

    Ah yep another one! Yup this is happening to all iPhones on iOS 8-8.1. I've been posting/complaining about this same things all over these forums. Apple needs to fix this. Super annoying. Happens while charging too. Turn on your percentage you will see.

    If you are worried about the battery draining faster than normal I would focus on the usage data Apple provides.

    There are others that have mentioned this bug before. I don't think it has anything to do with the actual battery dropping faster at those "spots".

    I think ranges and/or calibration are a bit off... My phone keeps shutting down between 4% and 8%.

    You should recalibrate your battery, i did and percentage is pretty accurate not to mention those bugs mentioned above
