Issue with battery in settings (not reading correctly)

I am very disappointed in battery life but I am getting NO help from the interal battery meter on the.  Any solution from Samsung or Google on this?  Check out the screen capture to see what I mean...  Says Discharging and is showing wrong info...

Turn the device off then plug it into the AC outlet until it shows it's full.  Unplug the device then turn it on.  Plug it back in and let it charge.  Make SURE in the battery settings it is showing up as Charging(AC) and not Charging(USB).  If it says Charging(USB) and it's plugged into an outlet then your cable is faulty.

Ironically both my GSM and LTE versions came with bad usb cords.

So the power cable would make the battery meter say it had 51seconds remaining while showing 96% charged?

Oh you are mistaken. That is correct as it shows how much time you have been on battery power. Not how much you have left. For that much time and being at 96% the calibration is off. You shouldbe at 99-100% not 96%. What i told you to do is to calibrate the device with your battery.
