    Question Note N7000 screen flickers and then phone dies

    Hi i have a galaxy Note . and for the last few weeks as soon as i use an app or game that is slightly resource intensive the screen flickers and the phone turns off. i can then turn the phone back on and lets say the battery was on 90 % its is now on 10 or sometimes even 1 %.
    repeated battery removal will get the phone to say my battery life is back to normal but it usually only lasts a few min and the screen will flicker again and then the phone dies .

    Does anyone have an idea what it could be .. i have tried loading a CM Mod Rom hoping its just my Stock Rom that has gotten corrupted but from a full charge i had my daughter play on the phone on my way to work this morning and the phone died before i made it out the driveway.

    thx

    Welcome to Android Central! The battery might be failing. Take it out, lay it flat on a table, and try to spin it. If it spins freely, it's bulging in the middle, which is bad--get a new one. But even if it doesn't spin, it's worth trying a new battery.

    Well, It looks like the problem is with the battery try removing battery, flip it and put it over to some plane surface not try revolving the battery with the help of a push. If your battery start revolving like a ball then your battery is dead and its time to buy a new battery and if you have a warranty then it would be good for you because in this case you can seek replacement..... while if your battery doesn't revolve then the problem is not with the battery but somewhere else...

    A new battery should correct everything. If not, give us a shout and we can go from there.
