    Same thing happened to my Nexus S. It's a common problem and you can find a new port and easy YouTube tutorials all over the web.

    Wow. And I thought I was the only one experiencing this problem. I realized this problem only recently as before I thought this isn't really a problem. However, it gets worse time to time. It doesn't charge properly and got my battery percentage from 56% the previous night to 11% the next day even though i plug in the charger tightly. I always charge my phone overnight. Can't really find out whats the problem...

    I see others are having charging port issues. This is my second phone - had to pay $100 that I don;t have to get this one and I am faced again with same issues.
    Someone mentioned to change port? Were you able to find it on YOUTUBE?

    Omg! I cant believe the problem is with the port. I ordered a new battery a few days ago hoping it would solve the problem. I have changed my charger 4 times since I got this phone. and same as you the battery lowers up til dying completely even though it is in charge overnight. this is frustrating!

    Very helpful video - but please note the phone in the video had no screws holding down the charging port, so don't try prising out the old board without first removing the screws (like I did)....

    ok ppl so i will write my experience as i got the same problem.the problem started once i bought a non original charger from one of those indian shops here in london,and it messed up my phone it wasnt pluggin in properly windows were popping up for no reason and the battery started draining really quick.So i went and bought an original charger bought a new charging port and a new battery as well.I changed the charging port following the steps from the above video then connected the charger but it didnt recognise it at all its like it was never plugged in.After that i put the new battery in plugged in charger still same problem.What i did next was switch off the phone blow on the usb port and connect the charger while switched off and now the phone is charging.I see it went up one percent already in normal time which is good.If i disconnect the charger while phone open and put it back in it still wont recognise it though.Ill leave it to charge for a while now and ill let you know if the phone will work fine that way without shut down extremely fast like before.At least thats something.

    That video is a joke... risking screwing up all the insides of your phone... to get the port out? (Assuming of course, that's the reason behind the issues with charging.)

    If you change the charging port does it wipe your phone of its memory, or is that still in tact because ive had the same problem with my phone, and it got worse when my charger snapped...

    Hi everyone,

    If you are simply having charging issues and do no prefer the first method of taking apart your phone, try this solution, buy an external battery charger that plugs in your wall and charge the battery without having to use the charging port on the phone. I know its annoying to have to take the battery out everytime but if you buy the one on ebay and receive an extra battery you can have one always charged so you just have to swap them out! Link is below.

    If link does not work type in youtube this heading ''Samsung Galaxy phone not charging or syncing easy solution'' and a man will show up with braces.

    Hope this helps

    I just bought the battery charger and an extra battery. alot cheaper. just remove battery and place it in the charger and the extra battery is so that while you are using one you can charge the other

    no, this will only ever happen if you change the logic board, not the charger port. or wipe the phone and the sd card. extremely unlikely for the phone to et erased by changing the chargin port.

    there are better phones out now, like google's first phone-- the moto g. it comes with a fresh install of android (with some preinstalled stuff) but it has no sd card, but it is a great phone for the cheap price, the phone has high-end stuff in it for a cheap price. my mum and dad own this phone and they love it. especially my mum, as it is really responsive, but let's hope this one doesn't get soggy!

    Seriously? You prefer that as a wise idea? C'mon just think, if you are out on a travel and you find a someone's charger and you need it badly to charge but you can't.
    May be I'm lazy to pluck out the back panel every day twice and carry the external charger along with me. Looks like I'm challenged to charge like anyothers. One time buy the first option Charging Port Flex Cable Ribbon costs less than 8 USD in ebay for SG2 and give it to any phone repair shop pay them 5 more bugs for their time to do this without breaking anyother devices. Job is done !!

    I am having the same problem with my S2
    I have two Galaxy S2 phones. One is for every day and the other is just a back up. I got it as a present and did not return it.

    My daily one started showing battery charging issues:
    It would take a long time to charge.
    Battery percentage would go down despite having the charger plugged in.
    Then overnight it would show fully charged. I unplug the charger and the percentage goes down drastically.

    I tried the charger of my other phone (virtually brand new) and did not notice any difference.
    Then I swapped the batteries: I put the back up phone's battery into the problem phone and with either of the chargers it did charge fully and without any drawbacks. What's interesting, the 'bad' battery was also charged fully and speedily on the back up phone with no issues.

    I put back the old battery from the nicely charged new phone to the daily phone and after normal usage, I plugged the charger in and the same problem. It wont charge; it is very slow; and the percentage would go down instead of increasing. I repeated the same procedure as described above and it worked fine.

    Questions arise:
    If my problem battery is dead or dying, why would it charge fine on the new phone? Why would the new phone's battery charge fine on my old phone? But as soon as I try to charge the problem batter in the old phone, problems arise.
    Swapping chargers did not make any negative difference.

    I am concerned if it is a phone/hardware issue; battery issue or even the charger. I dismiss the charger being the issue.

    Do I buy a new battery whilst it is charging fine on the new phone and the new phone's battery is charging fine on the old phone?

    Appreciate some inputs, please.
