Hi all. I have a problem. If i talk with my friends on my phone for like... 10 minutes it shows that the battery is low, but when i stop talking, and wait for like half hour, it again shows full battery. Is there a problem with my battery or my phone? If its my battery im about to buy a new one, cause its kinda cheap. Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
The battery that you currently have in your phone, is it new/old and is it a genuine Nokia battery? I have only ever noticed this behaviour with batteries that are past their prime or cheap non Nokia alternatives.
Then it is probably past it's sell by and time to replace. I would suggest getting an genuine item and try not to get one that looks like it has been sitting on the shelf for a long time as lithium batteries deteriorate over time even if they were never used.
Best way that is to purchase from a Nokia store. Otherwise, a reputable store with high turnover and you could also ask the store owner. You should also be able to check the manufacture date from the serial number but that would require getting the number and then contacting Nokia Care, which could take time.
Obvious things to look our for a worn and dusty packaging which is a dead cert for old stock.
