    Ok so I was playing Ruzzle when all of a sudden there was an error and I was trying to exit, didn't work. I locked it and then tried to turn it off but the touch screen wasn't working! so I took out the battery and plugged it in to the charger, it's been over an hour and it hasn't turned on! All it does is vibrate every once in a while but nothing happens. What do I do? I literally just got this phone 3 days ago!

    Sounds very much like an early death. What phone have you actually got? If it's only three days old, RMA it for replacement or refund under warranty.

    If it's a cheap Chinese one, "infant mortality" is a common issue, same with DOA.

    But then it's pretty much true for most consumer electronics we buy. If there's a manufacturing defect, it's going to die or malfunction sooner rather than later. That's why sometimes things are soak tested to try and ensure long term reliability, and any problem items can be weeded out.

    Yeh cheapo Chinese electronics....I think I am ... LOL... That's why I bought a Samsung this time. :beer:

    But I've found with consumer electronics in general, and cheapo especially so, if it's going to break, it's going to be within the first few days or weeks of using them. If not chances are they should go on working. Until they eventually wear out or becomes obsolete or suffer a mishap. But with cheapo, the life expectancy probably won't be as long.

    I can go back to the 1970s, comparing a made in Hong Kong transistor radio with a quality, but rather expensive made in England Roberts one. The shoddy Hong Kong ones would often die within weeks, while the Roberts would generally go on for years.
