Lately, even with my phone plugged in, when the app is online I've been losing battery.

The driver app is the only app on my phone that causes this. I can run youtube, mobile hotspot, etc etc all fine and still charge the phone.

With only the uber driver app running, even after hard restarting the phone, I still lose battery.

It definitely sucks a lot of power. I was having the same trouble with my old phone, somewhere around 1-2 years depending on how you use and charge your phone, batteries start to lose capacity and charge speed. I actually got a cheaper phone this time (a Samsung J7) because it has a $6.00 replaceable battery. Once a year I can pop off the back, take the battery out, throw it away and put a new one in.

It sounds like its time to replace your charging cable
