    Hey all...I have a Galaxy S4 i bought from a 3rd party on Ebay to replace an S4 I had, which dropped and shattered the screen/display. I am having the following issue with the replacement phone...whenever I charge the phone (more then a few minutes), it will completely power off, but I cannot get it to power back on unless I completely remove the battery and reinstall it. The phone then powers back on and is good to go. Now before anyone tells me its the battery, I swapped out the battery from my broken phone to see if I got the same results and I did get the same results.

    Is this just a defective phone? Is it a setting issues? Or?

    Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to Android Central! Sounds like a defective phone. I can't say exactly why it's doing that, but it sounds like some problem with the power circuits.
