    Default Phone switching off all the time

    I hope someone can help me.

    I got my s4 about 2 months ago but in the last week it keeps just switching off all the time.

    Battery isn't overheating or anything. And when I have a notification and it switches off the led light still flashes. Holding the power button brings it back on si a battery pull isn't needed

    It's just really frustrating

    Welcome to Android Central! Batteries can be faulty, even when pretty new. Remove the battery, lay it flat on a table, and try to spin it. If it spins freely, it's bulging in the middle, which is a bad sign. Try a new battery.

    It doesn't spin freely. Battery isn't buggy in the slightest x

    Have you tried some of the other usual troubleshooting steps, like a system cache partition wipe or booting into Safe Mode? Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support

    Trying a new (and trustworthy) battery is always a good idea. If it doesn't help, return the new battery, or save it as a spare.

    Done a factory reset when it first started happening. And I'll pop out during the week and get a new battery see if that helps. Cheers guys.
