    So I have had an s4 for about 2-3 weeks and a few days ago, I needed a replacement as my other one had an issue. So I have a replacement one, but there is another issue. This is my first Android phone so this is shaping to be some good impressions...

    Here's the issue. I have noticed that when I lock my phone and I plug my phones charger in, it seems that it silently 'turns off' (I say turn off but it really doesn't come on until I restart or do a battery pull) and I can't find any solution to this. Although this happens when my phone is locked, if the screen is on and I plug my charger in, it just charges. But, when I leave it idle and I get back to it, it seems that it shuts down also. When this happens it doesn't charge and it stops me from using my alarm. This is my only alarm, so this is essential in my life. The only way I can charge it without 'turning off', I must use Daydream. This is very weird and I don't understand why this is happening.

    Please help me, I really need this fixed. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    That is not normal, did your first phone have the same issue? I would again go back to your provider and warranty it

    Hey,
    No my other phone didn't have this issue. Seeing as there is no fix for this and I'm not willing to try another FDR, I'm going to just get a new one.
