Default LOW BATTERY Shutdown. Upon bootup lookout scanned update to Google Play Services

Mine shut down on its own last night, 1st time I had seen it act erratically.

The battery was low (less than 5%,but,plugged in). I was playing a game & then simultaneously a static popping sound/solid (unblinking) RED LED followed by the phone shutting down, akin to a battery pull on such equipped phones.

Took about ten minutes before the phone would turn back on.

On start-up, LOOKOUT had scanned an update to GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES, w/o any kind of prompt. Anyone have an idea to the nature of this update?

My GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES app is currently at version 3.1.59 (736673-30).

I'm on T-MOBILE (US) not sure if the version of this app is carrier/model specific, or, universal.

Anyone have anything different?

When I was working stage crew and we came across this kind of issue with the speakers it meant something electrical was shorting out and letting too much electricity run through the speaker cone.

@KOLIO what sort of game? Phones always run off battery, and the charger is just charging the battery, so if you are loading the phone heavily enough it may well be possible to flatten the battery while on charge, especially if you have got very low (and the shutdown may occur before 0% is displayed). Could be nothing more than that.

SAMSUNG GN2 (OEM) Charger.The popping sound is the same one I hear every time I make & connect a phone call.(Currently have an active ticket w/HTC on a somewhat related call/BLUETOOTH issue).Been on-going for 2+ months now w/no resolution,may return the unit to BEST BUY if any ill effects are noted from this incident &/or no resolution w/the upcoming 4.2.2 update.

BEJEWELED2 @ the time.I usually don't have a problem w/the charging catching up,even while playing a game.I don't make a habit of it,but,before this incident,never had a cause for alarm,as I usually use my tablet when the phone is charging.

Also,I noticed that a couple of G-Mails were being pushed through when the phone shut down,along w/the GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES app update after the phone powered back on.

As you stated,battery indicating isn't the most accurate when @ either extreme,best to just charge the phone to around 15%+ before using it extensively,to avoid a 0% situation,which is reportd to be hard/potentially damaging to LI-PO batteries.I'm not terribly concerned w/this happening once,but,I'll kep an eye on battery life to note any drop-off from this one-time incident.

Default ALL is WELL,ATM

Everything seems to be OK,phone is holding a charge/discharging normally as before all of this.

I'm just chalking this episode up to a "PERFECT STORM" of events:Multiple syncing events+PLAYSTORE SERVICES UPDATE+GAMING+LOW BATTERY=TEMPORARY MELTDOWN/TIME-OUT.

Was actually originally interested in which version of GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES is everyone on ATM & was wondering if this update was of the "silent" variety,being pushed through,as a security update to fix the latest ANDROID vunerability recently discovered?

I found out later that the patch was not fixed w/this update & you can check for the security patch youself w/this app:

I'm on the same Google Play Services version with an unbranded international LTE handset, so it's not carrier-dependent. You won't be surprised to hear that the bluebox scanner gave the same result for mine.
