How hard to replace the HTC One Battery

History

I read an article in which you gave the HTC One a 1 out of 10 for Repairability. How hard is it to remove and replace the battery with a back-up? If you cannot do so this would be a show stopper for any device!

v/Rod

don't buy HTCs. At first I loved it. One day, without any signs of malfunctioning, after 11 months of careful use, my phone One M7 died. I wish I could simply remove the battery so I could restart it. Also, the fact that it doens't have a SD card really sucks. Whatever is in my phone died with my phone. Don't buy HTC. Buy a samsung. Do your research and see for yourself how many people have the M7's purple camera issue and how many have bricked phones... with samsung, you can always remove the battery and the SD card...

digitalstuff,

Yes my HTC ONE last me seven months before it kicked the bucket where it wouldn't charge at all not even the clerk at Verizon could get it too charge plus she had it on charger for one hour. My old iPhone 4 32 GB battery has lasted longer than both Androids I bought and it is three and one half years old plus it just iPod now for one year seven months also when your Android phone is iPod you can not upgrade the OS on them I found that out on my Samsung three they are not like Apple products so I went back to Apple iPhone 5S after two Androids phones. My S3 is going on it third battery after one year seven months plus it is just iPod now. I notice Android phones batteries not as good as Apples iPhone. Yes Android phones do have problems charging my S3 takes 5 to 6 hours to charge battery plus you got turn the phone completely off so did my HTC ONE it did the same thing after three months. My old iPhone only takes two hours now for complete charge for three years and six month old phone that is not bad.

PHILIP CRAWFORD,

I had HTC One V. After 2 years 2 months, suddenly I cannot charge it. The micro USB port got very hot and the phone died an agonizing slow death. Good thing my google account backup all the contacts.

Mohammed,

Rodney, looks like a big PITA to change it. Check this teardown right up to step 11 where you can see how it is removed. Hope this helps, good luck.
