One fact of battery degration that it depends on how many charge cycles it has gone through. If your phone originally come with a small battery forcing you to charge your phone everyday then its battery will degrade much faster compared to a phone with a larger battery. Not to mention the phone with the larger battery even when degraded could be still usable considering it has a lot of capacity to begin with.

For example my relative had an iPad 2 and iPod touch form the same year. Now only the iPad is usable. The iPod won't hold its charge for even an hour
My iPad 2 was dead after 7 years of heavy usage and abuse by young kids (battery bloated, 2011-2018). My iPad Mini 1 is still alive since early 2013 but my kids do not use it since we get iPad 2018.

The worse one I had at home was Mi Max which was dead after only 2.5 years of use (battery bloated, 2017-2019). It has a large battery and has pretty good battery life. And it seems to be a common problem with Mi Max.
