For some odd reason, this whole week, my phone hasn't managed to get even 10% charge on it after charging it overnight. Basically, I plug it in at night, charge it for at least 7 hours, and in the morning it'll have about 10% charge. Why does it do that? It seems that while the phone charges, when recieving a notification, blocks it from charging even if it is powered off...

    Are you plugging into a wall charger, or is it plugged into a computer USB port? As JorgeM suggested, try an alternate charger. So, if you don't have another wall charger, try a USB connection to a live computer. If it still doesn't get beyond 10%, then it is most … Read More

Are you plugging into a wall charger, or is it plugged into a computer USB port? As JorgeM suggested, try an alternate charger. So, if you don't have another wall charger, try a USB connection to a live computer. If it still doesn't get beyond 10%, then it is most likely a bad battery, or a bad charging circuit in the phone.

Both chargers seem to do it but one works a bit better than the other. Also, for some odd reason, the charger and the phone get hot sometimese (as if i was playing a heavy duty game for sevral hours straight). Also, it gets plugged into a wall rather than my computer.

Did you by any chance happen to have discharged the battery completely while playing a heavy duty game? If so, I would bet your battery is toast. Reaching the minimum charge on a battery while drawing a lot of current from it can easily cause permanent damage to it, after which it can't be charged fully again.

Correct.
I think the battery has deep discharged.

I don't play games on it... i normally would have about 1 or 2 games and end up deleting it about an hour later (i operate a bit differently on ios devices ;)).

Well, i will try sending it to samsung for repairs... if they can't fix it then i will go to LG G3

Judging by your other post here, it seems that you busted three expensive phones in a row. In my experience, people who really have "bad luck" with their electronic devices are in reality just too careless with them. You might want to consider that. BTW, who's covering the bills for all these phones? I can't imagine he's very happy with you.

Yeah. that's true.

No... i am actually not, believe it or not. I tend to buy things to keep my devices protected with special cases but even then, things happen...

BTW, who's covering the bills for all these phones?

My parents.

I can't imagine he's very happy with you.

They don't mind nor do they care very much due to the fact that I have a gpa higher than a 4 in school and I do very well in several other places (don't judge my computer skills, hehe). Plus, i deal with them in absolute respect so they are always happy with me. They won't spend a penny on anyone who doesn't really deserve it (typical muslim business families).

My brother had an S4 and he had a problem with the battery swelling up and not charging properly/ loosing charge quickly.

Turned out to be a know fault and they replaced it so do a few searches to see if it's a known fault. Hopefully they might replace the battery for you.

They better. I sent my phone to samsung... I will see what they say by tomorrow.

Okay... so according to them, my phone was "destroyed" when it came out of the factory (in other words, they are giving me a new phone OR my money back (I will just take my money back and get the LG G3 :D))

Well, it looks to me that your device battery may have been worn out an may require replacement. Do one thing try removing your device battery put it over to the flat surface and try spinning it if the battery spins freely then I guess your battery may have been swollen and will require replacement. I would say bettery try doing the test it will help you in undderstanding wether there is a need for replacing your battery or there is something else going on. And yes let me know if I have guided you over the correct path.

I would have tried your method but I sent it to Samsung and they said it was a mistake on their part and they are giving me a compensation. Apparently, that battery was likely to blow up...
