Help me please! My samsung galaxy note 8.0 was really awesome at first. Later on, charging was slower, and the battery drains in an hour! Now when I plug in the charger, it keeps blinking and showing the loading sign. It's not slow or anything, but charging it takes ages and at the end, all I get is 1hr of use! It doesn't even charge and I can't switch it on, please if you know anything to do, or what the problem actually is..I'll be happy to know what to do!
Additional details:
-Just got my samsung galaxy note 3 months ago
-It had longer battery life before
-I have some large apps (but still didn't have these problems)
-Battery drains really quickly (100% full gets drained in 1hr
PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU KNOW OR HAVE AN IDEA OF THESE PROBLEMS!!!

There have been a few reports of faulty batteries, which also screws up the fuel-gauge chip resulting in the slow charge. Some have tried physically disconnecting then reconnecting the battery but I wouldn't recommend that as you'll invalidate it and possibly damage the screen. Your best option is to return it, to be honest.

Thank you very much :) and yes, that's like the best thing I can do :O I wish I could get it fixed or reduce the stuff I use it to do? or something else?

Check ur application manager to make sure u don't have a lot of internal applications running, this will kill a battery fast.
