hi all
my galaxy s 3 wont charge no more then 88% for some reason started to do that,tried two different chargers and a car charger and still same result...anyone else had this

Thats odd. Try this:

Discharge the battery completely until the phone shuts off. Plug in the cable and then let it charge while the phone is off (best to do at night). Leave it there for at least 4 hours. Then power it on and check if it fully charged.

This is happening to my phone too..(brand new s3) .found it extreamly odd...its been doing it for about 2 weeks but i just havent given it much thought but now im proper noticing the 88% each time... i left over night....still 88% freaky! how do i fix this or do i need to go and complain and get a new phone/ battery...
i want answers as to why this happend....is it a dodgy battery or a bug/ virus??? or a common problem...can it affect my phone in any way...is my phone retarded or a 'special' phone ..special needs that is. can this possess any risk to my phone.? what else could this affect? coz doesnt power saving come on after a certain %...oh i dont know im just so worried! :blink::bashful::wacko::wink::V:rolleyes:
