Are you sure your plugging it in all the way? I noticed that when I plug in my charger it goes in a little more than halfway so I think its plugged in properly but its not.

As someone else said, make sure you are using the charger that came with the phone.

Are you using the original charger? I've had that happen before with other phones with cheap 3rd party chargers and when I swapped out the charger it worked fine.

It depends on what you're doing, but it is possible. Check and see if the phone is hot. Sometimes if the phone gets too got it won't charge as a safety measure. Some people have reported the phone getting hot on LTE so that could be the culprit.
