Hi All,

I have an odd battery problem. My S3 will die and at times when I plug the charger in and the Battery Charging Screen comes up, It shows the battery has more than 50% life. If I unplug the charger and use it, the battery lasts maybe an extra hour but once it reaches about 6% the screen starts flickering and then the mobile network disconnects. I'm sure this is due to low power from the battery.

Any way for me to fix this or to ensure my phone is displaying the correct battery percentage?

See attachment.

Test new battery. If its not charging while you're using it while plugged in then you have a faulty battery. Don't let the power drop so it shuts down. Try and lend a battery from a friend and test it.

I have the same problem with my phone. Is it possible that this problem is caused by the custom roms we are using? What do u think? :/

It charges while I'm using it. Slower but still charges.

It happens even when I'm using my stock rim. I've reflashed. Installed apps uninstalled apps. Everything

How old is the battery. Power problems nearly always end in an old battery that just needs replacing

OK well these battery's don't last forever. First thing I would do is ask a friend to lend one and test it for 24hrs. Or just buy one
