When I plug the charger to a wall, the charge percent stays at 78% even after 3-4 hours of charge.
THe phone works now, but I am worried that because of this incorrect charge percentage showing up, the phone should not die on me when I need it the most.
It sounds like a bad battery. Can you take it to the store, explain the situation and ask to pop a different battery into the phone to see if it solves your problem?
