    My uncle recently gave me his old Samsung Galaxy s3 which he has not used in forever. I got the phone connected yesterday and everything works great. The only problem I noticed is that it does not charge past 50%, and it also takes forever to charge. It can be plugged in for hours and it only goes up by 5-10%. I've tried different chargers that actually charge my other phones completely. Today at work I tried using my coworkers battery which was at 80% (Samsung s3 battery) I put it inside my phone and it only showed 3% when the battery was actually almost fully charged.
    What do you guys think the problem might be, and is it fixable?
    Thanks in Advance.

    Well, it looks like there might be some problems with the hardware, I would suggest you to go for the nearest support centre for fixing it up, rather than looking for answers in the forums.
