My 4s phone randomly shuts off with any amount of battery % left. The last time it shut off the battery read 75% just before it turned off. When I try and turn it back on I get the low battery icon. If I plug it into the wall the phone boots up in a few seconds and is back to the same battery amount. Sometimes holding down the power button and home button will force the phone to turn on but not usually. I've already reset the phone to factory and reloaded IOS but no luck. Once I start having the issue I generally need to let it charge for 30 minutes or else it'll keep happening. Should I replace the battery or is something else going on?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.1
