    Hello, this is my first time creating a post, I know that this is a reliable website to be in therefore I will state what is wrong.

    Lately, my Samsung galaxy S3 has been dying very quickly. Also, while my phone is charging, the battery is still draining. I tried turning it off and I gave it half an hour, turned it on and it went up to 35%. It is currently still charging and its on 31%. Anyone have an idea on what the issue could be?

    pI had this problem with my SG3. In my case the problem was that the tab in the charging port was shorted out to the outer housing of the port thereby shorting out the battery. This situation is not uncommon if you use chargers other than the one supplied with the phone, which can easily damaged the tab inside the port. So the battery discharges quickly and the phone won't charge because of the short circuit. After removing the battery I manipulated the tab back to the center more or less of the port with a pin. After that I connected a very short USB cable to The port and connected it to the charger through a male to female USB cable. it took a couple of tries to get the short cable inserted properly so that there was no longer a short at the Port. once I got the short cable properly inserted Everything magically went back to normal. The phone charges up to 100% within 1 to 2 hours and discharges normally rather than after what had been well under an hour to completely discharge. It is awkward having that little USB cable hanging off the phone but it doesn't interfere with the way that I use it. if this is the problem you are having the only other alternative I can think of is to have the port replaced. The upside to that is the replacement port will probably work better with chargers other than the one that came with the phone. Good luck!

    I have currently got this problem but use a custom kernel to resolve it. Boeffla is good however it has been shutdown, you can download Linaro builds still. I could link a mirror to the Kernel Config (I'm new so cannot do so yet) where you could use to raise the charging speed. I put mine all the way up and it now charges like a normal phone should.
