This problem started recently. I will show a full charge on the screen. If I begin using an application like the web browser or Facebook or am using the phone, about a minute into using the app or call, the phone will reboot. It will try to restart, but usually only after I plug in the charger. When it comes back on, the battery indicator is red and it is charging. Takes about 20 minutes for it to fully charge.
It looks like the battery is bad, but because it does a full discharge so quickly, I am concerned that their may be a problem with the phone's circuitry. I have left ta fully charged phone sit for a few hours and the indicator continues to show a full charge when I check back.
I'll get a new battery, but wanted to know if anyone else has encountered this or if there is a way to test a few things first.
