Samsung Galaxy Note III Charging Issues
So I believe something similar has probably been posted a couple times, but I'd still like to have an answer to my specific problem, I'm greedy like that lol. Anyway, I have the Note III, it's barely 2 months old, and recently, it hasn't been charging very well. 3 days ago it started charging sporadically with the included house charger, aka will charge for a minute, then say it's not charging, then charging again, then not, etc, etc, it actually ends up losing charge over time instead of just slowly gaining. The included charge is (i believe) a USB 3.0, and that's what I'm having the issues with. Phone has never been dropped, no water damage, has been in a case the whole time, the charger hasn't been in any awkward angles or coiled up at all, so I don't think the charger is what's damaged. It might be though, because my old Android charger that I have in my car (micro USB) does still charge the phone, not very fast, but I think that's just because it's a low amp car charger. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I JUST got the phone and would be pretty upset if I had to get it replaced already.
PS it actually degrades in charged % fairly fast, plugged it in yesterday with 15%, after about an hour of not being touched at all, screen brightness all the way down, all apps killed, etc it was down to 5%. Even turning the phone off while it's charging doesn't help, it just doesn't degrade that way, but doesn't do any actual charging.
