    I got the 4.1.2 update severel weeks ago. I am having bad problems when it comes to charging. Before it charged great, quick and efficient. I could use my phone while it was on charge and still it charged quick enough. Now, it takes a hell of lot longer to charge and if I use it while it's charging the battery decreases in percentage. HELP!!!

    Hmmm, charging isn't usually a JB issue, per se. I'd lean more towards either a hardware issue (bad battery, charging port) or some setting/app preventing your phone from charging.

    How would I find out if an app was causing it?

    I'm finding the exact same problem ever since the new update adding the dual screen function. I've tried various chargers so bought a new battery and still the same problem.

    Have you tried a Factory Reset. It has helped some with charging and discharge problems.

    Hi Guys, Noticed same problem after update to android 4.1.2.
    Battery charging time doubled or even tripled.
    My gf and few friends experience same.
    I recently bought OEM SGS3 car charger and noticed that in charges increadably fast. i can use GPS, bluetooth, screen turned on + listen online radio, still get charged within 1 hour from almost empty battery.
    And just now asked my sister for a charger from her SGS4.
    Phone charges very fast.

    Looked up on inet and noticed that SGS4 charger uses 2.0A charger,
    and SGS3 1.0A.
    Maybe new update contained some changes to Charger AMP requirements.

    I hope it will help.
