What is Phone Fault? Mobile phone fault could be the abnormal state of your mobile phone. This could be caused by several factors ranging from physical damage which has to do with the phone hardware or software problems which has to do with the phone software. Some of the common mobile phone fault includes:
I’ll categories this as one of the hardware fault because it has to do with physical damage to parts of the phone. Battery fault or damage could occur with the following symptoms:
Overheating usually occur while surfing the internet, watching movies or playing games.

This is one of the mobile phone faults that can be caused by many factor. It’s usually as a result of microphone also known as the mouth piece damage. If your phone mouth piece is damaged, you may experience difficulty communicating with the caller.
Microphone fault can be solved by using an earpiece that supports microphone.
Fault speaker is one of the problems you can face as a mobile phone user. This is usually caused by damaged speaker. Once your speaker is damaged, you won’t listen to any sound from the phone, which means you can’t hear music sounds, videos, etc.
You can solve this by either using an earpiece or taking the phone to a phone doctor.
Please don’t be confused; damaged speaker is different from mouth piece fault. Speaker fault means you can hear any sound from the phone while mouth piece fault means you can’t hear any voice while you’re on call.
Faulty Charging Port
This is one of the problems we encounter while using our phone. I’m sure we already know what that means. Faulty charging port means you won’t be able to charge your phone using its port.
Symptoms of faulty charging port include:

Faulty charging port can be fixed either by taking the phone to the repairer or using an alternate phone by inserting your phone battery on another phone, charge it then put it back to your phone.

Phone damage caused by water
This occur when your phone mistakenly fall inside water. Once such incident occurs, quickly remove the phone from the water, remove the batter if it’s removable and don’t power on the phone for some time, keep it where there is heat, then after a while try to on it. I could’ve asked you to open the phone but you may not have the right tools, so the best option is to take it to the repairer if the above steps didn’t solve the problem.
