Hello, i've got today an S3 MINI here with a strange issue, the cellphone when using it normally from all sudden it reboots and starts a weird scenario that doesn't boots up until a charger is plugged, when this happens shows an 75% 80% battery level (aprox) and the device works for a few hours normally and then it drops again.

Tried FACTORY RESET, no go... What's the next step on the issue??
Thanks!

You have a bad battery. The same thing happend to me last month. If you pull out battery, you'll probably notice it's inflated a bit.

Ah, I have the exact same issue as the OP Mind you I don't see any inflation.

What would you recommend to order as a replacement?

Look closer or try to feel it with your fingers. Mine is barely visible
Or something else died in your battery. but if it can't hold charge, chargest fast and discharges even faster, restarts.. time to change the battery. They're not expensive luckaly

What did you order as a replacement? I feel like I may as well buy some extra capacity.

Thanks for your quick reply

Was the battery indeed, Samsung took care over it, but makes me wonder... How bad is assembling Samsung it's phones...
