Cellular Phones/charing speed up


hello sir I am using Samsung galaxy s3 ... I just bought it two months before. .. I don't have much apps. . but it takes much time to charge up when .... so I always used to switch off it and then I plug in as it consumes  a little than the the previous. .. so how to speed up charging....  also is there any consequences is switching off the phone frequently. ..  help..

There's no special way to speed up charging of a phone. My suggestion is that you only use a Samsung charger designed for your specific phone (don't use a third party charger that isn't specificaly for your phone). There are some chargers that charge faster than others and I'm not sure whether or not there is one for your phone. You may also want to consider getting a Mophie type of charger that attaches to your phone so that you can always have an extra charge. Charging has nothing to do with how many apps you have or how low the battery is. All Samsung phones like yours charge at exactly the same rate. Hope this helps.
