S4 active LED indicator when charging?

When the phone reaches 100% when charging and on use, should the LED indicator show a steady green light? Or does it only show the steady green light when charging the phone while its turned off? Thanks!

The LED indicator on your phone shows 3 colors. If it shows as Green, then the phone is currently charging whether it is off or turned on. It is not also indicated that if it's fully charge the LED would stay on or keeps on blinking. I suggest that you observe the light sequence instead, if the phone is fully charge and the light it solid green then it indicates as full or if the light is blinking.

When charging your S4 Active or your standard S4 your charging light will indicate green letting you know that your device is fully charged. There also is a setting on your device depending on the application that blinks green letting you know that you have a notification. Unfortunately the lighting will depend on the application which will make it hard for me to tell you which application notification that this takes place on.

When the light is steady then this means that your device is fully charged, when your device is actively charging then the light you will see is red letting you know that your device is still charging at this time.

My phone just shut down overnight was working fine last night, this morning when I went to charge ,after several hours of charging all I got was a picture of a round green battery on the screen, phone is only 1 1/2 years old?
