Initially I thought my charger was bust, I tried with a blackberry charger, same story. Like today I plugged it for charge with 19% at 7am,it's 11 now and it's 60% and its stuck on 60% for the last 15 minutes. I'm extremely disappointed. I can't have my phone charge for 6-7 hours at a time.
I've never had it charge for more than 2-3hours. The battery app in settings doesn't show the charging curve as a steep upward slope anymore. I googled a bit, some people recommended a factory reset. It doesn't seem like a software problem to me atleast. Has anyone faced a similar problem? What is the Samsung warranty support like. Man, I'm so dreading this. Please advise.
Thanks in advance
It's the charger. you will have to get it replaced - do it asap as the charger has a warranty for 6 months only.

Samsung service is good but the service centers are always crowded. Go just before they open and you should be good.

ps - carry a photocopy of the Bill and the original bill as well.

KLP refers to Key Lime Pie - the (rumoured) name of the next version of Android. Android versions at least up until now, have been named on food articles beginning with successive letters of the alphabet (think Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jellybean,...)

Check eBay and snapdeal, shopclues. But only white and black would be available, Blue was never made. It will cost you about 21 K. For a29K on eBay, you can get the much faster Note 2

If you plan to keep the device at least 3-4 years, suggest to go for Note 2 with the extra money as you get 1 GB RAM extra, Quad Core, bigger battery, reduced width easy to hold etc.

I finalized to buy Note 1, then went with Note 2.

NC, he's said he has tried a different charger. SO could be something else.

My s7562 had a similar problem - 6 hours to charge. But it also discharged in 3 hours, Wi-fi stopped working, and the ph stopped re-activation after screen-timeout kicked in (had to remove battery & reset each time). The ph is now with the AS.S for a board replacement.

Actually, it is the charger. He mentioned he tried a BB charger and not the original S3 charger. A friend had the exact same problem just last week. He had his charger replaced at the Samsung store under warranty - problem solved.

Agree with your point but going for Note 2 will be a bit of over stretching my budget. i am already over stretching my self from Galaxy Grand to Note 1 & Than my needs are getting fulfilled completely with Note 1. If i can keep a Humble Nokia C2-01 for 3-4 years, Note will surely server me more than that .

Problem is that note 1 is out of stock everywhere including Online Samsung store themselves.

Ownership update on S4 - About 2.5 months.

Overall satisfied with the performance. Usually average standby i was getting was about 27 to 30 hrs. Charging time is about 1.5 to 2 hrs.

Recently i picked-up Sview cover , simultaneously i received 2 OTA updates after which the standby time has drastically increased to 50 to 56 hrs. IMO sview is pricey but has certainly increased the standby time.

cheers

Xperia ZR users, has anybody got case online in India or locally in Mumbai,
Can we use SD card of Class 10 in it? On flipkart SanDisk 32 GB class 10 is around 1500 rupees, has to check locally.
Another thing I noticed that flap on hands-free connector is tight fitting however on charger port it is not that tight in fact a bit loose, opens without any efforts. Has anybody noticed?
I bought it at Alpha for 28k few days back. Z was available for 35 k.

Sold this to a friend of one of the forum members. Thanks.
