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.

Hi,

Odd or not I have exactly the same problem and I also have GS3. It just doesnt pass 88%. I have also tried 2 different chargers.

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:

You can try to go to Recovery Mode - wipe battery stats in the advance menu. Drain the phone fully then charge it and do it for 3 or 4 cycles.

Well, mine charges to 77% and stops. Has anyone found a solution? Has anyone tried a different battery?

Most likely its because the plug doesnt have enough power to charge!

Change your plug, then it will work
It happened to my Note 3
