seems a bit slow.. you are using the adapter it comes with? are you doing anything intensive with it while it charges? ex skype or something?

Use the original cable and adapter. If you think that's too slow to charge, like taking up to 5 hours, that's unusual. Let your carrier or the store check it for you.

Yeah, using the cable and adapter it came with. Nothing is getting used when it is charging. It must have taken about 6hrs to charge during the night.

This is just wrong. I think my charge is almost 1% per minute - pretty quick.

Hi. I have a G900F and I have noticed that my new S5 charges much slower than my old S3.
If I check it with "Galaxy Charging Current" or GSam Battery Monitor" it says that only 450mA is used even though I have connected the phone to my Laptop using a USB3.0 cable on a USB3.0 port.....

Any advice please. Thank you!
