Is a mobile battery covered under warranty?

If your mobile’s battery dies (completely) within the first 12 months of your contract, is it covered under warranty?

Yes, a battery that cannot hold any charge within 12 months is considered a manufacturer fault in almost all cases and should be under warranty. However, a steady decrease in the total capacity over time is completely normal and wouldn't be seen as a fault.

Whoa... 7 months?
It should definitely be replaced free of charge!
