    My phone started acting up and shutting down but now it will not turn back on.

    This all started happening when I started using my wife's battery. A week after she got her phone it was water damaged (submerged) and we just stuck it in a drawer. My battery has been crap lately and I remembered "oh ya, her battery is basically brand new!!" Popped into my phone and all was good for about a week.

    Battery lasted very long but the phone started to shut off and would not turn back on unless I removed the battery, even then I would sometimes have to pull the SD card to get it up again.

    Now it just won't turn on. I pulled everything out and place only the battery back (either mine or my wife's, doesn't matter) and all I get is a vibration and a Samsung logo, then off. - Can't even do recovery mode, it will say recovery mode in top left, but still shuts off after 3 seconds anyways

    To be honest, when you put the battery back in you don't normally get a vibration and an "automatic turn on", but now I seems to be getting this, very weird... is my phone is broken??

    Welcome to Android Central! The battery is likely water damaged. Damage doesn't always show up right away. Use a new battery.

    I've tried three different batteries and doesn't seem to make a difference.

    This is very odd, I'm hoping someone can help me solve this.

    Do the battery contacts on your phone look clean? Make sure no corrosion has occurred, perhaps related to the battery's water damage.

    There's no corrosion from what I can see.

    Sorry, I can't answer that. You may have to bring it to a repair specialist to try to diagnose the problem.
