I took my phone off of charge and turned it on at 6:30AM with a full charge of 100%. It is now 6:58AM and my phone is dead. As soon as the phone turned on it immediately started draining at a speed I could watch without the 8 second screen time shutting the screen off. I have been having issues with my charging port recently as well. I have to angle the charger in my charging port so precise and cannot touch the phone while it is charging or else it will stop. I do not know why so many problems are occurring so suddenly. Any help will be appreciated. If nothing can be done I am probably going to upgrade to the Galaxy S5 and maybe it won't have as many problems after only 1 year of use.

I had a problem like this with my old phone. You need to get the battery replaced.
