Hello,

I am understand that your feeling so don’t be panic just clean your phone internally means If your handset has a resemble battery, similarly your phone has some kind of port cover or even a removal back panel, open it up to let your handset air out,

Don not dry your phone with a blow drier because the heat from the drier could damage your handset internally components permanently.

After the clean out your device cleaner (liquid) after that on the phone and check it. But you will be this work quickly,

Hi Vidhi,

I can totally sympathize with you here - a punctured lithium ion battery is no joke but signs of swelling are pretty easy to spot

Seating the display bezel in the phone body does require a bit of extra force for it to click into place and for the display to be seated correctly.

Once you’ve given the battery another inspection, try turning the phone on. If the battery is expanding, you’ll be able to see the pressure marks plainly on the LCD. You need to turn the phone on to assess what other damage may have occurred and determine if you are able to repair it.
