If the port got damaged too soon, then maybe the guy didn't repair it properly.
Ah ok, I have a few stores in mind, I'll do that then.

When I bring my phone back to him I hope he does repair it properly, issues I've been having have caused so much disruption.

On a side note, I put my phone to charge and it started off at 1000mA, within a few minutes it went down to 800mA, a few seconds later (basically as I've been writing this message it's gone down to 300mA... Is this normal? I only started using a current monitoring app since my problems started, so the currents I was getting before prior to the issues are unknown.

EDIT: Nope. Not normal. Charger connected: 100mA. Phone is discharging at 1% every few minutes & feels like it's about to spontaneously combust.

Battery's definitely gone mate.

If your phone supports NFC, you can use that to check if the battery's genuine or not. Original replacements have embedded NFC.

Ah, that's handy. I'll look around for some genuine batteries and then use the NFC to double check.

Default Stweaks tweak might help

Hey OP, if you're on a custom ROM, i used to have same issues, the mA changes a lot, i had this STweaks App, it supports my kernel, i went to that MISC tab and checked box : Ignore unstable power sources; since then , i'm always on 1000 mA on wall and 899 mA on USB. Give it a try GL

Yeah I'm using Resurrection Remix, I'm going to try that right now. I hope it works!

EDIT: It doesn't support my kernel

You need googymax2 kernel or boeffla.

I'm not familiar with kernels, I don't think I've ever messed around with them. I assume they can be downloaded and flashed like a rom or zip?

IT WORKS! Finally! I can charge my phone and use it again! I'm still going to get a new battery as my phone is still extremely hot. I downloaded the latest version of googymax2, backed up my phone, flashed it, done what I had to do in the misc section and here I am with a rock solid 1000mA.

I'm very grateful for the replies in this thread, much appreciated, thanks a lot guys!
