    I had/have left

    I. I have left my mobile in the kitchen.
    2. I had left my mobile in the kitchen.

    Hi,
    This sentences were copied from another post in this forum. I wonder what's the difference in the meaning of these 2 sentences, please.
    Also would like to hear from a native-speaker, please.
    Thanks.
