    Default hi names xero

    i own a samsung galaxy player 4.2

    i like it but lately have been having an odd issue with it...

    the original battery in it bloated...NOTICEABLY....my gf bought another for it but it still consumes the battery faster than it should (im unsure if the battery she bought was brand new or used but it is a samsung and an exact duplicate of the old one)...the battery is rated at 3.7 volts...when i use it now GSAM battery moniter as well as another app i used to use say its consumption is 3.861-3.9xx...and the temp. fluctuates between 70-91 degrees...when im charging it it goes up to around 4.2xx-4.5xx.

    and also if it says it has around 50% power and i put it on a charger...itll jump DOWN to like 30%...it also does this when its at 100% on the charger and when i unplug it it will jump down to like 98 or lower instantly...and if its at 100% and i turn it off. when i turn it back on itll say 90% instead...

    ive ordered an anker battery that is the exact specs of the original it should be arriving tomorrow

    i hope its just i got a junk battery and this new one solves all my issues...

    Welcome to Android Central! You are correct, a battery that bulges in the middle has gone bad. If you place it on a table and are able to spin it freely, that's a good indicator that it's bad. It'd be ideal to get a replacement battery directly from Samsung, but to be honest, it can be very hard to know the quality of any replacement battery. If the Anker battery is screwy, then look for an authentic Samsung replacement.
