As I said in my previous forum, I have been having troubles with my battery. Before, it would only take like 2 hrs to charge and would usually last me the whole day. A few days ago, (like sunday) my phone started to heat up, but ditched the thought of something being wrong with my phone because I live in the south. My phone, after a couple of hours, was at 40-50 percent and I was confused coz a few hours would mean nothing to my phone, and would stay at the 90 range of percent. I hadn't used it at all BTW.
It then started go die faster. I was scrambling, trying to fix this by just shutting off my phone, but when I'd turn it back on, it would have lost 10-20 percent after 5 fricking minutes. I'm now desperate. As I was charging and typing this, it lost five percent. I only had that problem with an old iPhone. This phone is still pretty recent from coming out and Android has its reputation with being more durable. Eughhhh.
OK thank you for clarifying. Without actually having your phone in hand it would be very tough to troubleshoot. However I would make sure you don't have a lot of apps running in the background on your phone and close out of any apps you aren't using. With it being a brand new phone that would be the only thing I can think of other than a defective battery which can be possible but highly unlikely. Galaxy phones are great devices and this issue your having is not something I hear on a daily basis from working around cell phones all day. Also have you checked for a software update? I know that sounds weird but it potentially could help.
