    Are you rooted and are you using a custom ROM?

    It may be a faulty USB port on the phone. Could maybe try a new USB cable, which is usually the cause of being plugged in but not charging. Not sure if that's the case this time since it also reports charging when not plugged in.

    Going off of what Mooncatt said, check to make sure there's no debris among the metal pins inside the microUSB port. If you can find one of those compressed air dusters, they work wonders for clearing ports.

    Factory reset the device.
