I don't know if I should put this here, or in the "Cell phones" section of the forum, but I have a battery problem.
I bought the phone in April 2013, and my battery essentially swelled so much that I can't fit it back in my phone at around November 2014. My dad has the same phone, acquired at the same time, April 2013, and his battery is still fresh and flat and fine at around November 2014.
Thinking that it might be a battery problem, I used my dad's battery on my phone. I didn't want to use his phone, because I didn't want to have to transfer all the pictures and a bunch of different stuff already stored in my phone.
After using my phone with my dad's battery in it for 4 months, my dad's battery is starting to swell.
Both phones use the same Android OS version 4.0.2, and both are the same Samsung Galaxy Ace IIx model.
Which of these is at fault as to why my battery is swollen and why my dad's battery is starting to swell while inside my phone?
The battery itself. Maybe my dad's battery is coincidentally starting to swell at the same time I started to use it on my phone?
The charger. Maybe my charger is doing something to the battery that my dad's charger isn't?
The hardware. Maybe my phone has faulty hardware that my dad's phone doesn't have?
The software. My dad uses his phone as just a phone, and to check e-mail. Everything else is also set to default. He didn't adjust the brightness, nor did he install any apps. My phone on the other hand has some installed apps, and I use it for internet. I also use the S Planner calendar app, and take a lot of pictures using my phone.
So as I said before, which of these 4: battery; charger; hardware; and/or software is causing the battery to swell when it is used in my phone that isn't causing it to swell when my dad used it on his phone?
