S8 battery drains 1% every 1-2 minutes

JUMP TO SOLUTION

So, out of nowhere today, my S8 has started to drain battery abnormally quickly.  I've owned this phone for a little over a year and it's served me pretty well.  Sure, the battery life has gone down a bit since I first got it, now it lasts about 8 hours before it needs a charge.

 

But out of the blue, today it started draining around 1% every 1-2 minutes.  The screen is warm to the touch.  I know people are gonna throw in a bunch of power-saving tips in the answers (close apps you're not using, use power-saving mode, etc...) but this isn't something that seems like it's going to be fixed by a few tweaks.  I even tried power-saving mode and it continued to drain at around the same, if not faster, rate.  You can't tell me this is normal.

 

What should I do?

Ok, so, after a factory reset, and a full charge, the problem seems to have gone away, and the battery life is back around 10 hours.  Though I still wish it lasted as long as it used to.  Anyway, problem solved.

Does this happen when the phone is in safe mode?

To a slightly lesser extent, but it still drains far too fast.

Is the only option a factory reset?  That seems extreme.
