XA charging problems

Hey so I've had this phone xperia XA about a month now and it's always had this problem, the phones not new though its second hand. If I'm playing games while charging the battery still looses charge. I've not got the original charger but I'm using an ancher fast charger with the stores own cable I got the phone from. When I first open the game its fine but within 5 minuets the battery gets really  hot and that's when it starts losing charge. When it's charging when I'm not gaming it'll charge an average of 1500ma but whilst I'm gaming the charge is -300ma or greater according to accubattery. All apps are uptodate, I've upgraded the phone to android nougart. I have the screen brightness at 50% and auto brightness is turned off. I'm starting to think it could be the battery but accubattery tells me the batterys health is at 98% based on a number of charge cycles. Before I got this phone I had an iPhone 5, used the same charger (I know it wasn't a fast charging phone and its probably what broke it in the end but..) and it never had this problem, it would still charge while playing the exact same games even when the battery overheated.

 

Ive looked all over for a solution but can't find one. I'm starting to lose my mind lol and thinking that I should just go back to ios. Really hope someone can help me as I do enjoy android more for the most parts.

 

Thans for any answers.

 

Edit: I thought it might be the online games I'm playing causing this so I downloaded an app from the play store while watching a video on YouTube but the same thing happens, battery drains while it's charging. Then I thought it might be the wifi/mobile data so I downloaded a single player game and turned on flight mode while playing it, same thing happens the battery still dains while charging.

Re: XA charging problems

Solved. Stressing me out for a month but I just tried another lead and it charges perfect even while using the phone.

Re: XA charging problems

I mean a lead that connects from my charger to my phone. I was wrong though, still happes to me unless I have the screen brightness at around 70%. Yours sounds like a different problem to mine tho, your battery won't charge enough to let you turn the phone on?
