Samsung Galaxy S5 problems with phone!

    Hi all,

    I recently started experiencing problems with my S5 which is a little over a year old. The phone started losing charge faster than usual, then I noticed it wasn't always charging. When connecting the cable to charge, I have to sit it in there sort of on an angle to get it to connect and charge, wiggle it a bit to get it to charge and even then, doesn't always work. I was to switch to a smaller USB 2.0 cable but that didn't work either. With that cable it looks like it is charging but the percentage numbers drop.
    The other issue is the large button on the front of the phone. I have to press harder and harder to get it to work.
    I am thinking I should take the phone to a phone repair center and or buy a wireless charging kit. Any suggestions. Why would I have 3 big problems after only a little over a year.
    So, the issues are, doesn't hold a charge, charge port not working correctly and front button is hard to use.

    Thanks all!
    Rich

    Hi, where are you, if you are Uk based the phone comes with a 2 year warranty, just take it to a Samsung repair centre or send it off. Phil

    My phone is out of warranty. I checked.

    The bigger problem now is the Home button is sticking terribly and in have to press down hard to get it to respond. Ugh.

    I tried alcohol to clean it and DeOxit.
    No luck.

    Hi, afraid if you don't want to take it to a repair shop the only answer is to strip the phone down yourself and check it out, whatever you decide to do I hope you get it sorted. Phil

    Thanks....
    I am taking it to a repair center. The smaller charger is working well so I am not going to get a wireless charger.
    Main probe now is the sticking home button and the fact that it is hard to press now.
