This is really strange, but I was on an airplane and I turned my Samsung Epic Touch 4g phone completely off before the flight. When I arrived to my destination and was still on the plane, I turned the phone on and my battery was completely drained. I thought that maybe I had left it on by accident, so when I returned home, I made sure the phone was off and I had a full charged battery, but when I landed, the battery was completely drained again. I used to have the HTC EVO and numerous non smart phones before that and I have never encountered this problem. Can anybody help with that? Thanks.
aside from the possible battery defect i have never heard of a phone doing this. especially while turned off. which makes me think battery issue and not phone issue
This phone has weird battery quirks. A handful of times, my battery will go from totally normal ~80% to 8% out of no where. It is usually accompanied by a warm phone, then whammo. See it happened yesterday...notice the real sharp spike down. Ridiculous. Hopefully EL26 (or whatever the next one is) will fix this....it fixes a bevy of other issues. Also, see my awesome Sprint signals here in Madison, WI.
I do notice my phone getting warm at times. I haven't checked the battery drainage when that happens, but I will check this next time it gets warm. Thanks
