    I have a Samsung Galaxy s3 phone thats only 2 years old. It charged fine and then it started to take all day to charge just once, and the battery drains very quickly now. I did all the things that people online suggested, but they didnt work. Its not the battery thats messed up.What I should do? Should I get a Samsung brand charger to help me?

    Welcome to Android Central! Why do you think the battery isn't the problem? 2 years is when batteries can start to deteriorate, depending on your usage patterns in the past. The first thing to try is a new battery.

    It would also help to see some battery stats. Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).
