The two most likely causes: The battery could be dead. Lithium-ion batteries (as well as other types of rechargeable batteries) wear down over time. Even sitting on a shelf they eventually decay, but they decay faster the more you use them, and the more they're exposed to extreme heat, cold, and humidity. The socket on the phone has a loose connection. ...

This was a boggle for me as well, but I found it if click on battery, then the display at the top and then display at the bottom once more and finally about half way down you have display battery percentage.

Not sure why but they did factory reset to it. Probably it is that bad when the battery detaches from the other part of the device :) Don't they make these devices crash proof? I just hit it into a glass bottle :D

Sounds like they just replaced the device and gave you a new/refurbished one. Your original device will be fixed (if possible), and then it will be wiped and turned into a refurbished unit. If you didn't back up any of your data, it is gone. Hopefully you did; I'm pretty sure anytime you send in a device for service, they warn you that it could be ...

Buy a power inverter for your car and a 10Watt 2amp charger with dual usb ports and plug your charger as you would at home. That is what works for me. I can use pandora and Google maps or waze at the same time while surfing the Web at times. It makes no difference.

you might try the commercial apps and their monitoring. That would be Kioware and PROVISIO Sitekiosk Would be easier maybe if Google had something like Samsung KNOX? https://www.samsungknox.com/en

It's the custom ROM but it may not be the ROM itself. Most of the times it is the kernel that comes with the ROM that is most influential. But, it is possible that the ROM has a feature or two that is draining the battery. Also, since it is an S4 I have to ask, is it a Samsung ROM or AOSP? Because AOSP is so much different that usually because it is not the ...

It sounds like your laptop can't supply enough current to charge the phone. Most USB devices only want a fraction of an amp of current (e.g. a mouse might draw 0.1 A), so the USB ports on laptops can only supply a little current. Generally a phone or tablet wants 1 A or more to charge efficiently, which most USB ports can't supply. The cable isn't really ...

I second Basil Then's suggestion to use Greenify. It's meant for exactly this kind of situation, and it's really easy to use. It does require root, but you already have that since you're on CyanogenMod. Another option that's already built into CyanogenMod that might help is a feature called App Ops that was briefly part of stock Android but removed. This ...

The charger will show as connected because the cable is making contact with the charging port, regardless of actually charging. Yes chargers do go bad, usually at inopportune moments and there is a long list of reasons why. Sometimes from being plugged into long, getting dropped, getting too hot, used with wrong devices, being improperly pulled out from the ...

All batteries have some recharging cycle. If you repeatedly use USB that means you are charging repeatedly. This reduces battery life by consuming recharge cycle early. And contrary to manufactures demand to have 50% battery for updating the software, you can updated it even with 5% if it lasts until your software update is complete. I've done it in my Sony ...
