After a day of pretty heavy use my phone was getting down to like 5% battery so i plugged it in and continued to use it. Then it just turned off and i can't get it to turn back on. The phone itself was sorta warm, is it possible that it overheated? Any help?

yeah it is plugged in right now and it was plugged in when it turned off. The charging light is blinking but it refuses to turn on. I also tried pulling out the battery but that didnt work.

Just leave it in the charger for an hour or so, it should boot up.

User error? Pfft! My theory is that my beast of a phone was sucking down so much energy to run its multitude of apps that the ***** ass charging cable couldnt keep up.

Wall charger or usb on computer charging?

If you use it while computer charging you don't have enough power to actually charge, so the phone will die, because the computer can't produce the amount of power a wall charger will.

Second note: if the phone does go out like that, it won't turn back on until it has a 15% charge.
