    Unhappy Samsung Galaxy S4 died when I hooked it up to the charger

    It was at 54ish percent when I hooked it up and it died as soon as I plugged it in. I've tried letting it charge, taking the battery out, unplugging and trying, etc. But nothing works. If I hold down the power button it shows the "Samsung Galaxy S4" graphic then shows the 0% battery graphic, which is weird because it wasn't low on battery and it won't charge at all. I really need my phone. Any help??

    Welcome to Android Central! Batteries can fail suddenly, so I'd try a new battery, or borrow someone else's S4 battery to test it out.

    You can confirm a failing battery by taking it out, placing it flat on a table, and trying to spin it. If it spins freely, it's bulging in the middle, which is a bad sign. But failure to spin doesn't rule out a failing battery--it's still worth trying a new one.

    IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING, I'll be on vacation from 7/27 to 8/13, with only intermittent web access. So if you don't see me around much, don't worry, I didn't defect to another site or anything like that.
