It might get more hotter than usual, and it will definitely charge very slowly. Especially if you have your data connection Turned on.

Phone cases are good but can sometimes make our phone uncomfortable. And when our phone gets uncomfortable, the screen misbehaves.

If your device charges after you’ve removed from the case then all you have to do is remove the case whenever you wanna charge it. I’ll recommend you get a new case if you Still want, or Better still use the phone without a case/Plastic Cover. If the problem persists, move on to the next step.
