    Hi! I have a Galaxy Tab 4 which worked perfectly until one day I (as usual) charged it to 100% & since then it would start overheating from the top left of its back and battery drains so quickly! I have only ever used it for reading books and kept it safe always -- normally my battery would last for at least a week. Also note that my charger (adapter) was strangely overheating as well while charging it -- need help please.

    Welcome to Android Central! Moved from the Batteries forum to the Tab 4 forum (let me know if you have a different size).

    Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:


    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).

    Also, see if this happens in Safe Mode: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-11558
