    swollen 4 month old Samsung Galaxy S4 battery

    I got this Samsung galaxy s4 at the end of July 2013. The battery is now so swollen that I can't even close the back of the phone. The battery is now held in place by a cover. This is my 8th phone (7 Nokia phones, 1 Samsung phone) since my first mobile phone in 2003. And it is the first to truly disappoint me. First the camera would sometimes make it restart (fixed by an update) and now the battery is swollen and turns off needing a charger when it gets below 85% charge!!!!
    Thank you Samsung. I did really enjoy saving for months to buy a very expensive "high end??" brand new Samsung phone that began to fall apart after only 4 months of usage .Thank you so much. Will I buy another Samsung phone? NO. Never. I know this will not affect your sales since you will sell to 50 million other people. But yes, I am very very disappointed and actually waiting for the next thing to go wrong. It won’t surprise me one little bit if I take it out of my pocket one day and notice that the heat it produces (it gets really warm/hot) has melted the Gorilla (cornilla) scratch resistant glass.
