Would still like to keep it running. It now has no sign of life when plugged in, but because the battery was still holding a 3-hour charge when last used, I suspect that the sudden death is not caused by the battery. The battery would have dwindled more slowly.
- Net chatter suggests that the USB connector is prone to breaking. Have you been there? Is this repairable?
- I am content to use it with the power cord attached. Yet replacement battery sellers suggest that presence of a working battery is necessary. Have you been there? Can you confirm one way or the other?
I used the 10.1 tag because the 12.2 is identical in build quality (or lack thereof) to the 10.1. Your experience with the Samsung Galaxy Note pro 10.1 is likely very relevant.
