My samsung galaxy note 10.1 won't charge, HELP!
Monday 22nd of April 2013
HELP!yes, I've seen something like this on other threads but I couldn't really find an answer, so please, hear me out.I'm going nuts! So I bought my samsung galaxy note 10.1 around 3 months ago it was fine until a week ago. I couldn't charge it no matter what I tried. At first I just turned off my device and it charged. the second time it didn't help but magically I still managed to charge it. But now it won't charge no matter what I do or how long will I charge.When I connect the charger it shows that device is charging, but it's actually not. when it gets so low as 1% it turns off and doesn't start. But magically I still manage to do something. yesterday I tried charging it with my computer. It showed red X on charging sign but it charged, thought my pc couldn't detect the device. (at first time it detected thought even without Kies) I was almost happy and relieved but in overnight it only gained 38% and wouldn't charge any more.I went through everything I could find but there's no real answer on my problem. I don't know if it's chargers or device fault I even rebooted it, but didn
How are you guys charging the note 3 for the first time?
Sunday 29th of September 2013
So far for any new recent gadget I've been charging it to full out of the box, then running it down until it shuts off and then full charge again. Maybe repeat for another cycle or two before using it regularly. How are you guys going to "optimize" the battery if you believe in that?
Is the Note a problem-prone phone?
Wednesday 16th of October 2013
Is the Note a particularly fault-prone phone? Ive had mine for a bit less than 18 months, on a 2 year contract. Today I had to send it off to Samsung to be repaired for the second time since Ive had it. Both problems have been related as well, in the latter case the phone kept resetting itself, which ate the battery something chronic - the first time it was also to do with the phone restarting randomly and problems charging. Its not relevant to the topic at hand directly, but Im told Samsung have committed to have it back to me within 2-3 weeks. So 3 weeks. Which pisses me right off as I am now left with a very basic phone that does nothing for me in terms of internet, music or anything else except making calls.My last phone (and the one before it) was an HTC and I had no problems with it like this. The worst thing that happened was the accumulation of dust in the power port which made charging a bit of an issue, until someone suggested cleaning it out with a pin, which worked a treat. Hardly as serious an issue as the Note's power problems, and crucially I was never without my phone
First time charging time Note 3
Monday 04th of November 2013
I just bought my first Android phone which is Note 3. First time unboxing at the store, the battery shows around 53% left. The store person said to let it drain first and charge it for good 6 hours and don't let it stays charged overnight because it will make the battery don't last longer. After I drain it and charge it, it shows full charged just in 4 hours. So I unplugged and use as usual. But then I notice the battery drain quite fast. On medium/low usage, it only last for a day. From what I heard, Note 3 battery should last longer as the capacity of the battery is bigger by 100mAh from Note 2. I saw some impressive battery life on Note 2. That is why I choose Note 3 thinking it would be as good as or even better than Note 2.Is there any way of charging your battery for first time for Note 3? Since the charger using USB 3.0, the charging period was shorter. Any advise? Did I do something wrong with my device.
Battery Issue with the Note 3
Monday 18th of November 2013
Hi guys. A month a go i bought a UK (Vodafone) Note 3 and i must say i love the phone. The first couple of weeks the Note started crashing every time i was about start an app or type something, so it went back to vodafone and they replaced it with a new one. So far after reading reviews more about the Note 3, I hear people are claiming they are getting a day and half of battery life at least on a single charge ( heavy use). But mines doesn't last a day if i watch a few youtube videos, Facebook and whatsapp. This afternoon i finished charging my phone at 2pm then i opened the Facebook app for no more than 2min then the battery dropped 2% from a 100. So now its 11.50pm and i've got 45% battery life left and all i've been doing is going on Facebook for 10mins made 3 phone calls (less than 2mins) Watched two 15secs video clip and sent 6 messages. Doesn't sound right on the Noe 3 right? I read a post about a guy who watched a 2hour video on full brightness and only took 10% of battery life. So what should i do guys? my Gps Bluetooth are all off and the brightness is set to auto.
Samsung Now Has The Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover In Stock Online For $69.99
Thursday 26th of December 2013
Samsung has a large and growing selection of accessories for its many Android devices, ranging from spare battery chargers to Bluetooth headsets and replacement parts. It's also crammed with various covers and cases, some of which even provide an extra degree of functionality. That is especially the case (giggle) with the Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Covers that are now finally available from Samsung's online shop.This product combines the official wireless charging cover and the S-View Flip Cover into one, making the Galaxy Note 3 the first to receive this combo. Samsung only offered one or the other for the Galaxy S4 and the Note II, but not both. Like the S-View Flip Cover, this case has a transparent opening that provides access to the time and other information without having to flip it open. The back supports wireless charging.This functionality doesn't come cheap, though. You're looking at handing over $69.99, and that 50% off code won't work here. But if you remain undeterred, the Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover is available in black and whit
Battery charging problem for Note 10.1 N8000
Wednesday 17th of September 2014
This is my first time encountering this problem. I was chargining my Note yesterday when it reached 15% of the battery. However, even though it was connected to the charger and the charging icon appears, the battery life of my Note is decreasing until it drains the battery. I charged it overnight but unfortunately, It only charged up to 3%. I already sacrificed my files just to reset/reboot the Note but the battery won't still charge properly. I've tried almost everything. Wiped the cache partition, rebooting the tablet, and uninstalling everything. But the battery stays at 0%. Is it the motherboard? Hope not. I highly doubt that it's the connector/charger because the lightning icon appears when I connect it. I'm a newbie. I really want to identify the problem and solve it.

Note 4 vs Note 3 charging port scratches with pictures
Wednesday 29th of October 2014
First I will say that I am not particularly careful when plugging in my device. I do it at night sometimes without light and do sometimes miss the hole the first time when I plug it in. My note 4 has a scratch, and my note 3 has been scratched too. Obviously I have had my note 3 for much longer. With the note 3, the silver color hides the scratches and grooved band better, imo. To me scratches aren't a big deal unless they are visible on the screen. In any event, plastic and metal can both scratched by the usb plug. So if this is a major concern for you then pay attention when plugging it in. Sent from my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Galaxy Note 3 weird charging issue
Tuesday 30th of December 2014
Hi guys, I am currently experiencing a weird charging problem for my note 3. Ever since I had gotten it, I have been using my old USB 2.0 charger from my past S2 to charge it. Yesterday however, the phone detects that it is charging (and vice versa) however the battery percentage is decreasing as time past. So after that, I tried using the spare USB 2.0 charger I have in my office this morning and the same problem occurred. Here's the thing tho, I was able to charge it just fine with my portable charger (which is also using a USB 2.0) and with the stock note 3 USB 3.0 charger I had just gotten out of my note 3 box yesterday night as a backup. This is the first time I am experiencing something like that. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
