    I'm very new to smartphones so I don't know what to expect. I was browsing the app store on my phone when it told me it was low on battery... so I plugged it in and tried to run the recently downloaded app when it started lagging, I couldn't open any apps and the phone was acting up, like misclicking. help please, thanks


    EDIT: when the phone is plugged in, it goes crazy when I try to touch icons, it stops when I unplug it. Is this normal or did I buy a defective phone? I don't have a SD card in it, could that be the problem while charging?

    This is a known issue with some chargers and some cables. Try it with the OEM charger and you probably will not have that problem.

    Good luck.

    If you're using a charger that was formerly used on a Blackberry Storm, I had the exact same issue so went with the stock charger and it cleared up the issue for me.
