    I haven't experienced this with my 3 and this might work: let it die completely and then charge it while it is off until it reaches 100%. Then turn it on and charge it again until 100%.

    Dear User 468,Nokia 3 have a totally NEW protection of the battery.How it works:
    IF you connect he phone to the charger and In the same time You Use the internet,the temperature of the battery is increasing,So It Is Trigged the Protection of the battery and the Charging Process Will Be Suspended Untill the TEMPERATURE of the Battery Come to NORMAL.When you connect the phone to charger,DO NOT USE high power consume apps(internet,gps,etc)
    Do not forget :NOKIA 3 is a SMART one .:-)

    I found out that it just shows the wrong battery percentage - my was acutally 100% charged, despite showing stuck at 68%:

    Try this:

    1. enter recovery mode

    2. Use "wipe user cache"

    3. restart

  • Me too facing this problem at 79% how to solve this today I visited care also they have updated my software..
    Pls give any solution

    Hi. I had same issue. I let the phone completely discharge itself. Once it had, I charged as normal and it seemed to fix itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello dear friends. Forgive me for bad English. Faced a problem when my Nokia 3 was not fully charged. It happened after an instant discharge in the cold. The problem was solved as follows:

    1) Charge the phone to maximum that it can
    2) Install the Battery Calibration application and start (without charging)
    3) Then reboot the phone and continue charging it. After that the phone will be charged up to 100%. Possibly after a reboot you need to calibrate again.

    Thats all! Please feedback if this helps!
    If you find a solution better, correct these steps! Thank you so much!

    When 80 percent charge in my phone
    Then stop charging ...??

    how can solve
  • i have the same problem like you an all i do is to let the battery drained ang plug it again and restated to original battery state
  • I had mine hat 55% with 6 hours to fully charge, then I did a WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET from the RECOVERY/FASTBOOT menu, now the battery is back to 100%


    My Solution

    I had the same problem repeatedly. Nokia 3 did not charge fully but (obviously) stopped at 60 or 70 %.

    After much googling and doing same experiments I found the following solution which worked for me.

    Step 1: Let the Nokia battery drain until Android automatically shuts down.

    (Beware: battery is not yet fully discharged).

    Step 2: Connect original Nokia charger and boot into Recovery Mode (hold Vol+ and On-Button for 30 sec).

    Step 3: Disconnect charger (important), wipe cache partition, and wait in this mode for 2-3 hours until Nokia

    ultimatly shuts down. Now the battery is completely discharged.

    Step 4: Connect charger again, but do not yet start Android ( ! ), let battery charge and wait for 3-4 hours.

    Step 5: When full, start Android the normal way (Hurray) !

    Explanation: The charging problem occurs because Nokia has a smart battery - it detects overheating in charging

    and protects itself. Thats why in such a case the percentage shows only 60% or 70% (although truely it is charged to 100%).

    Draining battery in Android mode does not help because Android shuts down long before the battery truely is empty.

    In Recovery Mode it drains completely and the battery statistics is now resetted (wipe cache partition).

    This procedure is NOT healthy to the LI-ION battery and should not repeated regularly.

    Prevention: The irritating battery percentage occurs when Nokia 3 is charged under warm conditions

    (eg near radiator or when some heavy bachground processes run or with a charger > 2 Amps).

    Then the smart battery sometimes stops at 60 - 70%. So the best prevention is:

    Shut down Android before plugging in the original Nokia charger.

    Hope this helps ...

    Best regards
