Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

Use the flat end of a spudger and insert it in the small recess at the lower end of the battery.

Use the spudger to lever out the battery and remove it.

You can do this with your fingers but take care not to puncture the battery with your fingernails.
