After the recent feb FOTA security update my charging has completely stopped working, the only way i can charge my phone is if i switch it off and even that takes ages and even after full charge, the battery starts draining out without even using the phone, at this point my phone has become completely unusable, im kicking myself for buying this phone.


  • To be sure about the issue you are facing, try changing the plug point and use a different switch board to plug in the charging adapter and check. Also try with a different charging cable if you have any. Many times, simply changing the charging cable wirh a different one, fixes this kind of issue. If the still keeps happening, then you would have to visit service center. Its hard to hear but that would be the only way if the above mentioned steps don't work for you.
