  • After few seconds, Android System recovery screen will appear and then release all the keys.
  • It will display various options. Use Volume down button for navigation and power key to select.
  • Navigate to and select the option ‘wipe cache partition’.
  • Next, go for ‘reboot system now’ and your system will be restarted.


Solution 4 – Safe Mode

Booting your phone into safe mode can show you a lot of things. It is considered as the number-one step for identifying problems.

In this case, you’ll need to boot your phone into the safe phone, do a battery drain and test the draining rate when your phone is  in safe mode. If you phone drain slower compared to when it’s in normal mode, then you’ll need to delete third-party apps one by one or do a factory reset resources. This seems to be the reason why your Galaxy Note 3 has issues with charging and experiencing slow charging.

To boot your device in safe mode,

  • The device should be powered off first.
  • Now press and hold the power key for few seconds to turn on the device.
  • When the Samsung logo appears on the screen, press down volume down key till you can see the lock screen.
  • When lock screen appears, it will display safe mode in the lower left corner.

That’s it. Now to exit from this mode, just restart the device and it will be back to the normal mode.

Once you confirm the app is the reason that is causing this issue, uninstall them one by one by going to Settings > Application manager and tap on the suspected app to uninstall it. You can start with the applications you have installed recently. If you have too many apps on your device, you can perform a factory data reset. This will reset the phone’s settings to factory defaults, and it will erase everything from your device, including your data and applications. That is why you need to backup your files first.

If you see no difference in draining rate then do a battery re-calibration.
