hello,

my i9505 wont charge the battery till 100%. it allways stop at 95%.
i thought it was a bad battery and replaced it. but the new one also stops at 95%.
im charging it overnight.

I didnt bought the batteries from samsung, but im quite positive they are genuine.

if i disconnect the charger and replug it. it can reach to 100%.

anyone else have this issue?

is it indication for a faulty battery/charger?

thanks.

steller.

The chances are that the battery status on your phone needs to be calibrated. What is likely happening is that the battery is fully charged but only reporting to be 85% charged. If you are rooted, there are many battery calibration apps on the play store that can reset the battery stats and solve your problem.

If you are not rooted then I don't think this is enough of a reason to jump into the root business.

Try running the battery all the way down to 0% such that eventually the phone completely dies. Then remove the battery and insert it and then plug in the charger.
