(NT) Have you tried a new battery?

No, Sir.

Based from my observations, it can't be the battery because my battery is performing well. The problem is when the battery drained to half and then my sim card is inserted, my tab automatically shuts down. And also when I use flash when taking pictures. Those are the only two problems that I encountered. My tab does not drain its battery fast. Do you think the problem is the battery?

By the way.

From what I have read, you power off the phone to change SIM cards. So this can't be considered a bug.

Why I would suspect the battery is the shutdown on the picture taking. That flash will cause a little more current draw and an older battery may not be able to deliver.

It's a simple test. Besides you didn't write it always did that. But your choice to wonder. I have not reason to wonder as I've seen that happen.

-> What you will encounter out there with consumers is they don't want it to be the battery. So much so, they'll want more diagnosis of their battery even when you show them it working with the new battery.

I also inserted the sim card with my Tab off, fully charged. And then if the battery becomes 50%, boom. That's it. Can't open with my sim card on. What i do is take out the sim card and make my tab in flight mode.

Thank you so much, Sir. You gave me an idea. The problem now is the money to buy the battery. haha. thanks, anyway. Happy

Missing details?

I can't tell how old the battery is. I find these batteries to behave oddly at 1 to 2 years. Again the details are missing. Age, if it always did that, etc.
