[Q] GT-I9050 is turning itself off randomly
Need to share this, I posted this under T-Mobile but it should be under GT-I9050
My Galaxy S4 (GT-I9050) is turning itself off randomly, the battery indicator show it is more than 70% full. I did all sorts of factory resets and changed different ROMs, I even reverted to stock ROM but it still happened.
I noticed that it never turns off while it is connected to a power supply, which indicated a battery issue.
I checked on the net and some reported battery problems with S4 – bulging - due to keeping it charging overtime. My battery appeared OK until I compared it to a new one; it is notably swollen / bulged so I think I need to change it – it only 4 months old.
I owned many phones over the years and most of the time I keep it charging overnight without a problem, my understanding is that phones stop charging when the battery is full; does the S4 continuously charge?
