    Default Something wrong/ defective device?

    About twice today, I've taken my G3 out of my pocket to find it powered off and having to remove the battery to turn it back on. What gives?

    It could be alot of things from a bad battery to a rogue app. Unless you can provide more details there is little help to offer. Is the battery dead when you try to power it back on? Have you dropped it lately? Does the battery seem loose?

    After using it, it gets a little warm then I leave it alone but it just turns off and I have to find out later.

    Happening to me as weill with my new VZW G3. I did a factory reset and, this time, did NOT change over to ART like I did upon opening the thing. No issues since, but it's only been a few hours...

    The battery is always where it was when it dies. Nothing seems wrong. I'll go to the store tomorrow I guess. Damn :/

    Things seem smoother back on delvik.

    Yeah, since my switch to delvik, everything has been much better, even with the battery life.
