Hey guys. I just purchased the phone and the charging on it is slow as @#@Q. WHen it does fully charge it drains fast, 10 hours with light usage. I have disabled and deleted many apps so far and no go. Right now I am hopeful that disabling google search works. Has anybody else had this issue and have any fixes? My next step is to do a full factory reset, which is no biggy since its new. But would suck to have to download everything again.

Are you using the Samsung OEM charger and cable? If not you will experience slower charging. This is due to the specifications on the adapter + phone itself detecting each other, and applying a special charge voltage.

Of course. Even if I didn't it should never take 5+ hours to charge off of usb 3.0 especially with my pc which has a feature that boosts the amperage for charging. Also a slow charge shouldn't affect its discharge rate.

Thumbs up I fixed the slow charge
Google Search was the problem child. I stopped it and the charging took off. I restarted the app, just because I like it, and it hasnt caused a problem since.

Now for the battery drain, it has only slightly improved. It lasted about 15 hours yesterday with very very light use. Today I let it charge an extra 12 hours and cross my fingers it has only discharged 4 percent with about 30 minutes of talk time and two hours off charger.
