After doing the factory reset it would charge and being recognised by my Laptop no worries as posted above. However that seemed to last only the initial day or so, so earlier this morning I took it into Dick Smith, they are sending it away for repair. I got home last night and my phone was on 11%, I checked it 45 minutes-1 hour later and it said 0% and turned off. So somehow it lost 11% in 1 hour maximum with no apps running (I didn't use I during the day). It did charge up initially (After multiple attempts), however when it got to 100% I unplugged it from the cable, and the green LED light stayed there.
I now wait for a 1-2 weeks.
