  • Is my smartphone slowly dying?

    I noticed lately that when i try to charge the battery up, it does really well for a while, then as it nears 100% it slows to a crawl. It was at a crawl a couple times right away - then I turned it off and back on to reboot it and it was fine goin up from 50+ percent to the early 90s and then it charged real slow again.

    Is this a sign my battery is slowly dying? it is a few years old. Or is there something else that could be wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    It could be a battery starting to show its age. Is the battery replaceable? If so, you could plop a new one in there.

      Could be the battery. I've found that getting a new charger can be helpful.

      I often put my phone on 'power-save mode'. Otherwise the battery life gets zapped too quickly.

        While in Anchorage this weekend, I noticed that an old phone I use as a tablet wasn't charging to 100%. I thought of this thread and figured my battery was aging out. When I got home and plugged it into a different charger, it charged right up to 100%, so you might try a different charger as Koalie suggests.

          Thanks, all, it seems to be working perfectly now as it had been; the power save mode is a good idea to help, though. Probably especially at night (when i have it on silence anyway).
