My iPhone 5 wouldn't hold a charge.
Lots of tiny screws, but all is well!
Don't loose the screws!

I had just gotten a new phone- an iPhone 5s. Yes, it's now somewhat outdated, but it was new to me. The phone would be at 95% battery life when I left the house, and by the time I arrived to my destination (20 minutes later), it would be alerting me that I had less than 20% battery life left! What. . . .
Screen was puffing out; battery had PREVIOUSLY been replaced by Apple under their extended repair program but they wouldn't cover it again and I didn't want to spend the time dealing with a Apple Store visit.
Following the guide was smooth and easy, except the tricky part of how SOLIDLY Apply glues t . . .
My battery life was completely random. It might last half a day, or 2 hours. Sometimes it would just shut down with 75% showing on the screen while i was taking a picture.
The repair was pretty straight forward. I was fairly nervous, but having all the correct tools in the repair kit helped immensely . . .
Original battery was over 2yrs old and died within a few hours of use
1. As others have suggested, when removing the screen, slide the wedge under the case and screen near the headphone jack. Doing this facilitated it the rest of the screen popping up.
2. No need to fully remo . . .
The battery in my daughter's phone was going bad; showing 80% and then dropping to 30% over a 2 minute span.
It went well. I'm glad I read that you didn't need to remove the three video cables if you felt comfortable supporting the screen while disconnecting and replacing the battery. The less cables . . .
Battery was bulging, and the screen had started to lift away from the rest of the phone
Don't wait for the screen to bend to the point of eminent failure. Long before then you'll notice the screen has a discoloration where the battery presses into it. That's the first sign you're gonna need t . . .
Battery was just dead; iPhone was working for only a day.
I forgot to unscrew the screen and ended up damaging it; had to buy a new one. But the battery was fine and overall the process is very easy.
Just be careful and if something does not go easily don't push hard. Try to look around before applyin . . .
