    Angry Why is my phone so slow to charge?

    I have Galaxy S3. So, the day before yesterday, my phone is charging fine(full charger in 2h), then yesterday phone charge so slow, it took 10h or more to full charge. So, today still happen it took 10h or more to go full charge.
    Nope, the problem is not the charger. Me and my brother have the SAME phone and charger. We share charger. When he charge his phone, it works perfectly fine. Only my phone took 10h or more to full charge.

    1) What causes my phone to charge slow? Is it the battery or the phone inside?????????
    I already tried using my brother battery. I charged my phone for 5 minutes with his battery inside my phone. Yet, it did NOT add any life battery percentage. I believe this all started when I dropped my phone with the charger in the charging port. So, I guess, that what it cause.

    2) How much does it cost to get you phone CHARGING PORT fix? Where do get it fix?

    Short Term solution and probably not the answer you want but try charging on flight mode. It stops the phone from searching for networks continuously. Someone might have a more long term solution.
    Hope this helps somewhat!

    Lol, I tried charging my phone turn off today, it seem more slower. I'll see that. My best bet is the charging port is broken. When I dropped my phone, the charger is plugged in the charger port. That's how it started, when my phone became so slow to charge, it took 10h or more to go full charge. I believe! Hopefully not, though.

    I'll give it a try about your saying in charging in Airplane Mode.

    Also try using an compressed air can to blow out any dust/lint that may be in the charging port. That might be interfering with the charging

    It's just a can that shoots cold air. Useful for blowing out any dust/dirt you may have in your computer's keyboard, remotes, phone ports, etc.

    It tried that already. Anyway, now my phone is acting weird, while charging the battery decrease, instead of increasing????? By the way, I also tried using different charger(Not Galaxy S3 original charger; different one random charger that I found).

    My best bet is the inside of the phone is damage or the charging port.
    How much does it cost to get those fix?

    You can get the micro-USB port replaced for about $40 at someplace like http://mobiletechvideos.mybigcommerc...b-port-repair/ or you may be able to find a local shop that will do it cheaper.

    Or you could just invest in a wireless charging solution and skip the repair altogether.
