Why does the android phones not keep charge

Report as

They do keep charge.

How old is your phone? All phone batteries go bad eventually. They start holding less and less charge.

What do you have running on it? If you have 3G/4G, Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, full screen brightness, auto-rotate, etc. always on, then the battery will drain very fast.

How much do you use it? The screen being on a lot takes up a huge amount of battery life.

Check the warranty from when you purchased it. Also, can you take the back off and take out the battery? It's pretty easy to just buy a new battery, especially an extended-life one, off of Amazon or Ebay.

Because the battery isn't the best that they have on the market. Plus smart phones take up a lot of energy

1. a case that is too thick may hinder battery life. 2. smartphones require alot of battery to run. 3. android phones do not have the best battery on the market.

Mine does. Make sure you turn off things you are not using.

You might try switching out batteries to determine if yours has become not chargeable, which can happen to a battery over time and many charging cycles.

Also, for the device to be able to charge, the connectors have to all be good: both ends of the cable, the charging port on the phone, the USB port on the computer if it's being used and the wall socket if that is being used (some dual wall sockets have one of the sockets "switched," most often the top one, which means dependent on a wall switch being turned on).

If all of those things are proven good, then your phone is defective at some point in the charging circuitry (given that the battery indicator is functioning and the LED has not somehow become non-functional.. moisture?, etc).
