    Default Phone/Battery Issues

    As of late, my phone has really been acting up. It started with huge battery drain in short time spans. My phone will go from 100% to 50% in an hour.

    It also charges super slow. For instance, I plugged it in today at 15% around 3pm and it now at 8:30ish sits at 18%.

    My third and final issue (for now) is that when I have my phone plugged in to charge, it will still discharge when being used while charging.

    I have loved this phone, but these recent issues have me wanting to look into finding a new one.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Remove the battery, lay it flat on a table, and spin it. If it spins freely, that means it's bulging in the middle, which means it's going bad. Try a new battery.

    Just gave that a try. It didn't spin freely. It has been doing all of this stuff with both of my batteries. But it'd still almost be worth a shot to buy a new battery and see if that would be the fix.

    It's always worth wiping the system cache partition: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.
