Phone [Q] Problem with charging in S III

Hello everybody
i have a very strange problem with my Galaxy S III
i plug my charger or any charger to my phone it takes a long time to start charging ( about 20 seconds )
earlier it was starting on time, once i plug the charger it starts.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Did you try to switch cable?
Also, see if there is any change when you plug it into a pc, or after restarting your device

Thats ok, no need to go formal on me
Check the current reaching your device using this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ngcurrent.free
If the charging port works as it should, you suppose to see value of 900-1100 in the 'avg' row (assuming you're using original 1A charger and cable), otherwise it should be much lower.

I was having the same problem with charging my phone for ages and then it occurred to me that it was a problem with the cables. Try the following fix from my own thread in the general section of the forum.
Link below and good luck with it

Try a different cable. I charge my S3 with a S4 charger and it works great! Good luck.
