Replaced screen and battery, phone will not boot or be detected.

Hi! iPhone 6 here, broken screen and dying battery. Figured I would fix both at the same time. I replaced the screen and battery and the phone wouldnt power on at all. I tried to insert my old battery (but I bent it pretty bad removing it) and it would power on the screen, to the white apple screen and be stuck in a boot loop (I figure from me basically bending the battery in half removing it.)

So I assume it was a bad battery I ordered, and ordered another one, from amazon again however a different seller. Same problem. Insert battery, no activity from the phone. Cant recognize it on itunes either. Help! Did I really just get two defective batteries in a row? Or is there a bigger problem here.

It could be but I doubt you would get two bad batteries from two unrelated vendors. You could always measure the output with a multimeter to be certain (should be 3.7V - 4.2V).

My fear is that you damaged the logic board. Did you keep track of the screws and put them back in the right place? There are differing length screws that secure the display bracket and if you mix them up (called Ling-Screw Damage), then you can kill the logic board. This can be repaired but you will have to find a repair shop that does micro-soldering repairs.
