    my battery gets hot even if its used for only 5-8 minutes. Especially when i am playing. Then it will suddenly shut down when the battery is 65 or 50

    Welcome to the forums. What phone do you have and how old is it? It's possible that the battery is starting to fail.

    Thanks for registering. That phone has a removable battery, can you see if it's swollen or damaged?

    Place the battery into a hard, preferably fire resistant/proof container, and take it to a shop that is able to safely handle those kinds of swollen batteries. Call ahead, and DO NOT TOSS IT IN THE TRASH OR INTO A BATTERY RECYCLING BIN. swollen batteries like this need special care to dispose of, and throwing it away or into a recycling bin can cause it to be punctured and cause a fire.

    And then, of course, buy a new battery.

    Put it, with the phone if the battery is not removable, in a fireproof metal box. Then read this and take the appropriate action: https://www.wikihow.com/Dispose-of-a...-Phone-Battery


    ...Posted same moment as above.

    Do I really need to spend more money to buy an original battery? Or is it okay to have a new one but its not that "original". I mean, same 2600 mAh battery but its not "original whatsoever

    Genuine Samsung batteries are not expensive. Buy the best battery you can, since the whole phone depends on it.
    Cheap batteries are expensive. It’s the expensive ones that are cheap, because they work properly.

    Replacement could not be simpler on the J2.

    Take the old battery in a safe container to the store where you buy the new battery, and they will dispose of it safely.

    Welcome to the forums. If it were me, I would spend the extra cash to get a genuine Samsung battery.
