    It's probably the battery. See if there's a local shop that can measure the battery, and that has an external charger. I've brought batteries back from about 2.5 Volts (which, if you follow the calibration graph, is about "-200%"). If not, a Note 4 battery is under $15 at Amazon (Anker is a good brand).

    And try to never let the battery get below 40% if you want it to last.

    Hey Oscar.... You're not supposed to post here. I remember you posted this... My final post to the Galaxy Note 4 forum

    Honestly... I'm just kidding around!

    Bummers about the battery. At least you can remove and replace it easily enough!

    You say the battery looks bulky?? Put it on a flat surface and try to spin it. If it goes like a merry go round it's definitely a bad battery. Also don't worry about draining your battery past 40% as it won't do any harm.

    My brother's Moto (imbedded battery) was swollen too, and he didn't even notice it until the screen got "lumpy". He had it in a Defender case. It was a dangerous situation because he was still charging it daily. Could have caught fire.

    It's the battery, I'm almost positive. I had a problem with my Note 3 battery. Phone started rebooting continuously for no reason. Pulled the back to check things out, pulled the battery and put it back in, couldn't get the cover back on. Bad bulging on the battery. New battery made all things right again. If wife uses an extSD it may be toast, too. Mine was.

    That's good news! This is a good example though why I refuse to consider a phone with a sealed/embedded battery (like the Note 5) where if that happens your only recourse is to find a local repair shop capable of replacing the battery or having to send it off to Samsung. Not fun!
    Yes! And when I made the exact same statement I was not treated well.
