Posted 12th Oct
Hi, I'm buying a refurbished android phone from argos ebay outlet. Is there a free app that I can use to test how many charging cycles the battery has performed? Is there anything else i need to check?
Thanks

Interesting list of codes for future reference, but I have two phones in front of me with different versions of Android and from different manufacturers, and the code does nothing on either. I guess some manufacturers must lock those diagnostic codes down without root access or something similar?
