Battery says 100% but it's not?

    I tried looking for this, but not sure what it is.
    When I am charging my iPhone and use it, I get this and I'll either unplug it or restart my phone and it's fine. Anyone else have this issue?
    If you see the battery indicator in the upper right had corner is showing 100% charged, but the "wake up screen" shows it's not. I know it's not charged because it was only plugged in for 5 minutes and and I was at 20% when I started to charge it.
    It doesn't happen all the time, but annoying.

    It's a common problem. The graphic at the top freezes and so it won't ever change even though your phone is going down. I must admit I've never seen it freeze on the plugged in battery image, though.

    It is possible that your phone was dangerously warm and that the charger sensed that and stopped charging until the phone cooled. It's a safety measure.

    <secondguessing>...Unless I am just going crazy and that doesn't exist, but pretty sure it does.</secondguessing>

    Maybe. I am talking on the phone, on Facebook or google maps when this happens.

    Are you doing anything as it's charging?

    Totally unrelated, but I really like that battery info screen. What app is it from, if you don't mind my asking?

    I have the same problem too. It just stays hot and not charge. But it does not happen often. So I just unplug and plug it again. Most times it works.
