    i have a samsung galaxy s3 mini. I have to keep it plugged in to have it on. While i had it plugged in, i was on the internet and it just shut off on me. I thought my battery exploded, so i got a new one. When my new battery arrived, I plugged it in for a couple of hrs, and my screen wont turn on, no vibrate, nothing. what do u think my problem is?

    Welcome to Android Central! What do you mean when you say you thought your battery exploded? Did it actually leak? If so, the phone's contacts might have been damaged.

    For the new battery, try plugging the phone in to a wall outlet for 8-12 hrs, undisturbed, to make absolutely sure that the new battery is charged up.

    Puffy battery is definitely bad. Try charging the new one up for 8-12 hrs as I previously suggested.

    Hard to say. Possibly a hardware failure in the phone. You may need to contact Samsung or a repair shop. Good luck!

    You probably know this already but, honestly, some people have never been down this road before...

    Once your device is truly powered off, you need to hold the power button for several seconds (like 5'ish) to force it to power on and boot up.

    Just saying...
