Not yet was hoping I could find a fix for it on here first before I delt with that. Maybe I'll try and get sprint to bump my upgrade up for me and I'll just upgrade to the nexus 6

Going to a different phone because of a charging issue is a bit dramatic isn't it?

Mine had gone from 7 to 77% or 10 to 80% in an hour on average. If the charger works fine then get the phone replaced through Sprint under their warranty. Or just get the N6 lol

Haha maybe. But I was gonna upgrade anyhow after the first of the year just thought they might bump my upgrade up instead of replacing it. My phone use to charge in bout 3 and half hours tops and now it takes at least 10 that's just crazy.

That is crazy. Are there a lot of apps running during the charge? If not, get it replaced asap.

No there won't be nothing running at all. It also does it while I have it turned off.

Any update on this? Your carrier or LG should be able to send you a replacement battery and charger under warranty.

I traded for this phone so I don't think k can use the warranty. But it still charges the same way.

Something is definitely defective with your device. Either the charger or the cable (I'm replacing my gf's as of today after her original cable 'slowed down charging' just recently) or the devices battery may be at fault here. Have you ruled any of these 3 out yet? I'd give it back to the place or person you traded it for!
