Did you run a system upgrade? The patch might make some apps get corrupted.
Try rebooting the phone if it doesn't work try starting up your phone in safe mode()this can be done by turning off your phone and pressing the power button for 3 secs after you put the phone on=
Try disabling third-party applications as it usually causes conflict with wireless applications.

Bennyzino:my techno m3 android is always selecting chargers. if I buy one today and it works fine it may not work in 3 days time. some friends of mine who use techno of another version complained the same thing to me. plz wat can we do?
|Re: Is Your Android Phone Malfunctioning? Get Help Here by Nobody: 2:23pm On May 05, 2015|
Two common problems are faulty cords or broken charging ports.
If no indicators appear it's quite possible the charging cord is bad. If you suspect a bad port, try wiggling the portion that connects to the phone. The phone may switch over from charging to not charging repeatedly;
this is an indication the port may be bad.

I tried upgrading and an error occurred, since den wen on it just bring 'No Command'
|Re: Is Your Android Phone Malfunctioning? Get Help Here by Nobody: 4:09pm On May 05, 2015|
You will try to clear the cache or factory reset.
Put off your phone.. Then press the power button and the +volume button simultaneously till you see your screen loading.
It will load an environment.
Then under recovery select factory reset... Under factory reset select yes.
Then select reboot phone.
Hope that solves the problem.
If it doesn't follow the same process but this time clear cahce memory.

That's the work of a Trojan Horse or virus.
Connect your phone to a pc with a USB and try scanning it through the computer system..
Try installing an anti-virus in ur phone and do a complete scan.

I use a Lg E615, my phone doesnt respond to usb connected to a computer, or show charging process
|Re: Is Your Android Phone Malfunctioning? Get Help Here by Nobody: 6:41pm On May 05, 2015|
The USB cord is probably faulty perhaps the lines meant for data transfer are broken hence the malfunction.
Try using a new cord or a cord that works well with other phones.
Another reason could be the port you connected the USB to.. Could be the system didn't detect it. Try changing the USB to another port or another system.
NB.. it is necessary to turn on USB mode in your phone and OK data transfer.
If all these doesn't work your phone charging port is probably bad.

Bennyzino:what can I do if the port is bad?
|Re: Is Your Android Phone Malfunctioning? Get Help Here by Nobody: 8:15pm On May 05, 2015|
you might need to change it.
There's a possibility it lost contact.
Get it to a repairer.. Nice you already know the problem

I use infinix hot and there are these messages that keep coming in each time I reboot or switch on my phone. I have cleaned cache, force stop, and even cleared the message app memory yet they keep coming. The funny thing is that even without sim card inside the phone, they will still come in

The driver for data transfer is probably misbehaving.
Go to the apps store and download USB drivers for Android.
Let me know if this fixes the problem.
|Re: Is Your Android Phone Malfunctioning? Get Help Here by Nobody: 2:28am On May 06, 2015|
Try factory reset..
Follow the steps I aforementioned in the thread.

Download DU power saver and battery doctor from the apps store.
|Re: Is Your Android Phone Malfunctioning? Get Help Here by Nobody: 2:47am On May 06, 2015|
Rooting some models of phones can cause it to malfunction.
You might need to unroot it
|Re: Is Your Android Phone Malfunctioning? Get Help Here by Nobody: 2:57am On May 06, 2015|
You’ve got your smartphone. It’s new, shiny and neat. You can go online from it while you’re out and about and download cool apps to keep you company whenever you get bored. But can you download any app you want? What about custom themes? And did
you ever feel like altering or replacing system applications and settings on your phone because they’re not so user friendly? Well, the thing is you can’t do whatever you want with your smartphone.
For security reasons, phone manufacturers and mobile network operators impose software limitations. However, these limitations
can be overruled by rooting your Android phone, although it is not advisable. Especially if you don’t have antivirus for Android installed, to protect you from mobile malware.
A lot of people are talking about the freedom rooting your phone gives you, without necessarily stressing the risks you face by doing so.
Here’s a brief overview of the advantages and disadvantages of this process. In case you decide to go for it, it’s best you take an informed decision for your own mobile security.
First off, what’s rooting?
Rooting is a process that allows you to attain root access to the
Android operating system code (the equivalent term for Apple devices id jailbreaking). It gives you privileges to modify the software code on the device or install other software that the manufacturer wouldn’t normally allow you to. And for good mobile
security reasons: they don’t want users to make modifications to the phones that could result in accidents beyond repair; it is easier for them to offer support if they allow users to only use the same
unmodified version of the software. But tech savvy users have already developed rooting methods, which vary depending on device. They are available on the web, and more and more Android users are resorting to them because of the powerful perks they provide, such as:
full customization for just about every theme/graphic
download of any app, regardless of the app store they’re posted on, extended battery life and added performance, updates to the latest version of Android if your device is outdated and no longer updated by the manufacturer.
But if you do it improperly, it can create havoc. And even done properly, if your phone doesn’t have proper antivirus protection for Android, rooting leaves your device open to all sorts of malware.
With great power comes great responsibility
Now, say all these advantages have convinced you to root your Android device. But you can do it at your own expense, risking your own mobile security.
1. You can turn your smartphone into a brick. Well, not literally,
but if you goof up the rooting process, meaning the code modifications, your phone software can get so damaged that your phone will basically be as useless as a brick.
2. Your phone warranty turns void. It’s legal to root your phone; however, if you do it, your device gets straight out of warranty. Say you root your phone and some time after that, you experience a phone malfunction – hardware or software related. Because of the Android rooting, the warranty is no longer valid, and the manufacturer will not cover the damages.
3. Malware can easily breach your mobile security. Gaining root access also entails circumventing the security restrictions put in place by the Android operating system. Which means worms,
viruses, spyware and Trojans can infect the rooted Android software if it’s not protected by effective mobile antivirus for Android. There are several ways these types of malware get on your phone: drive-
by downloads, malicious links, infected apps you download from not so reputable app stores. They take over your phone and make it act behind your back: forward your contact list to cybercrooks, sniff
your e-mails, send text messages to premium numbers, racking up your phone, and collect personal data such as passwords, usernames, credit card details that you use while socializing,banking and shopping from your smartphone.
Mobile security advice
If you still want to root your device, make sure you research the process very well, as it differs depending on the smartphone type and brand. It’s better you ask for expert advice on dedicated forums, or better yet, ask a tech savvy person to root it for you. All these in order to ensure you don’t turn your device into a brick.
Install proper antivirus protection for your Android phone, even before rooting the device, to fend off malware infections. Bullard Mobile Security 12 offers mobile antivirus protection for a wide range of mobile operating systems, including antivirus protection
for Android devices.

Does the phone get hot?
The processor usage is probably too high.
I recommend downloading DU Speed and battery doctor.
That will put a check to that malfunction.
