    Okay so I did a battery pull and when I booted up it was at 54% when I did the pull it was at 10% also notice how it says "not charging" instead of discharging and notice the sudden drop and then rise

    I've just started having this charging issue too, when previously the past 12 months I haven't. It only charges when it's off. And when it's on, the battery drains like crazy when previously I've had no problems.

    I had the same thing, I think it's a hardware issue. Lucky mine was still under warranty

    Same issue here but has since went away. Mine started acting up when I got some water in the charging port. Once the water dried away I guess, it started working fine again.

    I read around that the usb pin inside the charging port can be bent the wrong way. Use a toothpick to bend that pin more towards the screen and you should be good to go. I don't know how that makes it work technically, but it worked for me. Phone is now charging while on, and says "Charging (USB)" when I have it plugged in.

    Many thanks guys!!! the last one worked fine for me... just a little push the inside pin (the one with the cupper contacts) with a plastic stick and carefully. It actually works as it did till yesterday night, thanks again community, it was a great headache for many hours (I was even searching for replacement parts and reading workarounds even worst).
    Regards.
