One question! Today i decided to charge my phone with its original charger for the first time! I plugged in the charger and after 20 mins or so i smelled like something was burning! Went to check the charger and it was halfway melted but the phone was still showing like it was charging! I disconnected it immediately and continued charging it with another charger! Now after fully charged my battery drops like a stopwatch! I wanted to ask a question ! Has anything happened to the phone or it is just a coincidence??

Well if it still charges then it's ok. I had a similar issue but it cooked the USB port on the phone end. Give it a few full charge and discharge cycles. If the battery is draining quick then I'd do a warranty job

Battery seems ok now after a day! Same screen on time and everything seems ok! Guess htc have implemented a safety mechanism on chargers end to protect the phone!
