Why is my phone slow?
Saturday 08th of December 2012
Hey all,Recently I have noticed that my phone has been really slow. I am running CM10 nightlies with Franco Kernel (1420Mhz). I chalked it up to the fact that I have been dirty flashing for a while.When I run AnTutu benchmark my scores seem on par with what it should get (a score of around 8000). But in daily use, the phone is slow. It seems to stutter and hiccup (my technical description) Typing is especially a chore. Once I start typing, it might take 5-6 characters in before text starts to appear. So recently, I was about to flash a new update. I boot into CWM and run a backup. This backup would normally take 5-10 mins. This was my first backup since I noticed my phone being slow. This backup took over an hour. So now I am suspecting that it isn't the Rom but maybe a hardware issue. Any thoughts? Thanks.
performance - Why does my phone slow down after using internet and installing apps?
Monday 30th of January 2012
I have Samsung Galaxy Y. I think that when I use wireless and installing apps, not immediately but after a while the phone slows down considerably.When it happens I must restart and when it turn on, then continues to operate normally.I don't know if this is caused by some applications I have installed or some other problem. When it occurs I try to free RAM memory with Samsung's task manager or fast reboot, but it doesn't help.After I read some of your topics, I don't use task killer anymore. It happens to me two or three times a day!Why my phone slows down, and only turning it off/on seems to solve the issue?
Why is my 4G Hotspot so slow???
Sunday 06th of May 2012
Just added the hotspot feature to my Rezound. My 4G on the phone is blazing fast at 25-30mbps download with 4-6mbps upload consistently. Unfortunately, when I use my laptop through the hotspot, I average about 2mbps download and 4mbps upload. Why is it so slow??? I can't stand it.

I've bought a new charger but it wasn't samsung. I plugged it on my phone and it charges sooo slow. So then I change the voltage power supply (samsung one) thing.And it charges faster. So then I went to school, (it was 99%)I didn't even use my phone much I only text. So when I come back home, my phone was 10%.Why is my phone like this? And another question, is it bad to have a different voltage with different adapter? (if youre asking whats the voltage and stufff.. Idk what is it..dunno where to look)
Why is my phone so slow to charge?
Monday 19th of May 2014
I have Galaxy S3. So, the day before yesterday, my phone is charging fine(full charger in 2h), then yesterday phone charge so slow, it took 10h or more to full charge. So, today still happen it took 10h or more to go full charge. Nope, the problem is not the charger. Me and my brother have the SAME phone and charger. We share charger. When he charge his phone, it works perfectly fine. Only my phone took 10h or more to full charge. 1) What causes my phone to charge slow? Is it the battery or the phone inside????????? I already tried using my brother battery. I charged my phone for 5 minutes with his battery inside my phone. Yet, it did NOT add any life battery percentage. I believe this all started when I dropped my phone with the charger in the charging port. So, I guess, that what it cause. 2) How much does it cost to get you phone CHARGING PORT fix? Where do get it fix?

My phone usually charges fast. This is my second replacement phone...and this morning it said 30% when it was on the charger for the whole night. So when I went to school I plugged it into my laptop and it decreased after a while when I tried it again, it started charging. Had this problem before but now its taking hours to get up to 50%. Sorry for the long post.
why is my phone charging really slow?

Last week my phone wouldn't charge at all. This week, it took five hours to charge 50%. I've changed batteries, I've changed cords, and none of it worked. This leads me to believe its the USB port with bad connection. Is there a way to fix this at the house or do I have to ship it off? If I ship it off, will they give me a completely new phone? PS. My phone is a Gs3
Why is my phone not charging properly or AT ALL?
Wednesday 10th of June 2015
Hello,I have only just registered with this site because this seems to be the only solution before I end up having to take my phone down to the repair shop. Recently I have noticed my phone (Samsung Galaxy S3) is not charging properly, or not at all. It seems that when I have it turned on and charging, the battery percentage either charges EXTREMELY slow or it decreases. But, the last couple of days, I have turned my phone off to see if it charges better that way. It charged much quicker. At the moment though, it seems to not charge at all, whether it is on or off. Do I have to replace the battery in the phone, if so then would this effect my SIM card and the data I have stored on my phone? Please reply ASAP, in need of feedback. Thank you!
