Default Two problems with SGS3

Hi, guys, I purchased an used SGS3 and my battery seems to charge slow. I downloaded Galaxy Charging Current and I'm attaching two screenshots below. One is from the AC and the other one is from the USB cable. Is there anything wrong with it?

AC:



USB:



And my second problem is that sometimes when I connect the phone to my PC it keeps connecting and disconnecting until it finally connects. What do you think? Is the micro USB port faulty?

Most likely a faulty usb cable. Replace it, try again.

Next time, a quick search before posting, usb cables malfunctioning are a very common problem in the forum.

Not true. Samsung's usb cable sucks.

Any standar micro usb cable works. I've used generic, from xperia, from blackberry.

Can be a charging cable fault change it. If the problem persists.
Then you are having trouble with your charging slot. Yes the hardware charging jack.
It might have been oxidised and thus preventing a proper flow of current.

Your both problems refer to the same cause. Either the charging cable or the (hardware) charging jack. Replace either of them and you are good to go again.

And secondly Samsung DONT block any NonSamsung cable. Even in many cases other cable are found to work more smooth and efficient with Samsung phone as compared to original Samsung cables.
