Has anyone had a problem with their Samsung Galaxy Ace ll phone battery swelling? and believe me I know how weird this sounds. The phone has been well taken care of and never dropped in water, but the battery seems to be slightly swollen and is not fitting right.

The battery is done. Do not charge it ever again for your safety

You can purchase a new battery from anywhere between $10-25. If you have a low or $0 tab balance, you can get a brand new device and not have to spend anything.

I would upgrade to the S3 which is a major upgrade from the Ace II x at little tab charge and plan.

Good luck.

Another good one is the Moto G, it actually has better specs than the S3 and it is only $150 as opposed to $300. I know the tab medium is cheapest over two years but the S3 is an older handset and is not the best choice by today's standards. Also, if you choose the Moto G and you have an older plan that Koodo used to offer (if under $30/month) you can keep the old plan on a tab small. If it's over $30/month you qualify for both tab small and medium.

Just my two cents :)

I would actually get the Nexus 5 over the S III, much better specs for around the same price.

Note: Unless you buy the phone outright, both the Nexus 5 and the S3 are $0 on a Medium Tab :) the Nexus 5 is definitely the better deal though.
