S4 battery drain whilst charging
Hi, I've had my S4 for almost a year now. I unfortunately, after a few months, started to notice the battery wouldn't last a whole day of minimum use, with power saving mode on etc. I haven't really gotten round to getting a new battery for it yet. However, today, I was plugged in charging my phone (with an iPod charger + the mini usb which came with the s4 as the original charger made a horrible noise when it was in use) I was playing a game (which is what I usually do whilst it's on charge; however the battery life was draining and it eventually died. When I turned it back on it said it was on 0% and charging but it wasn't actually charging and everytime I tried to do something it turned off. I turned it off and left it plugged in for about 2 hours. When I returned it was around 47%. I turned it on and started to use messenger and instagram. However the battery started draining again; which has never happened when I've been using it plugged in.
Will a new battery or charger fix this? Or is it the usb socket on the phone?
Thanks for your time and hopefully you can understand my issue through my muddled tale.
