My Problem

Well I plugged it in to charge one day and when I picked it up and could see in the side of the phone I knew something was wrong. The battery had puffed up like a balloon.

My Fix

It had dust and such inside after cracking the case off the rest of the way and made a few sounds along the way that where not so reassuring that it would turn back on when done but alas it did and has been working great since.

My Advice

Just have fun, its not so bad.

My Problem

Battery had swelled causing the left front bottom of the phone display to bulge from its case.

My Fix

Took about 45 minutes, online instructions and video was very clear and concise. Due to the swelling/bulge the screen had separated from the framework causing a small crack during the removal process(phone still works after reassembly with a minor discoloration to the bottom left display). Still very happy with the overall results and would do it again.

My Advice

Very difficult to remove the battery. Ended up using a dental pick to pull the battery from the case.

My Problem

The battery on my iPhone 5 would no longer hold a charge. A replacement phone was too expensive.

My Fix

My battery replacement kit arrived and a half hour later the job was done. I couldn't believe how easy it was. The phone has been working like new ever since.

My Advice

With the iFixit battery replacement kit and the step by step instructions anyone could do this repair.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 was a hand me down from my Dad and he used it for work so the battery was completely drained by the time I got it. I had to charge it several times a day and had to carry a charger with me wherever I went. It was a disaster of a phone!

My Fix

The only trouble I had was getting the screen off. I would suggest buying the whole kit if you don't have one of the suckers that comes with the whole kit. Fortunately, I had one and a friend who had a little more strength than I did. He prized it off and after that, replacing the battery was a piece of cake! The original battery was help down really, really well with double sided tape, but again, I got it off and put the new one in. Now it's an absolute dream. With fairly regular use, I get a full day out of the battery now. Like the title say, absolute life saver!

My Advice

Like I said, I'd buy the whole kit if you don't have the sucker to get the screen off. Apart from that, just be careful with the screws and taking the old battery out. It's so easy to puncture batteries so try not to be too heavy handed with it.

My Problem

Couldn't stand being out somewhere without ability to be reached by my family

My Fix

Did the repair several times. First battery that I ordered (not from Ifixit) was used and actually worse than my old battery (800 charge cycles). IFIXIT battery had 0 charge cycles and lasts quite a while.

My Advice

Order from IFIXIT since their batteries are legit. Take your time repairing and watch the 3 minute video for starters. Also, my camera wouldn't focus after the repair. I took phone apart quickly again and found a piece of wire that didn't allow the tiny camera to be pushed all the way back in.

Also, you have may have to turn the phone on and off again a few times in order to connect to your service provider. Initially I thought I had broken the phone, but a simple on and off and I was back on Cricket!

My Problem

My battery was not holding a charge as long as it used to and was acting weird at the 20-30% mark. It would suddenly drop from 25% to 10% or have a hard time charging from that point.

My Fix

The whole replacement, from powering off to powering back on, took about 30 minutes. The trickiest parts were removing the display assembly, this takes quite a bit of force. Instead of opening it up a little to then pry open, the whole assembly popped off for me. Luckily I didn't pull any cables apart. Separating the battery from the adhesive was also nerve racking, as you had to apply constant force to slowly pull it away. Otherwise, removing and replacing screws and cables were no problem.

My Advice

I read this suggestion somewhere else, but didn't follow it. Perform this over a dish cloth or some other soft material, as I did drop a screw and had to hunt it down after it bounced and rolled. Fortunately, it landed a few millimeters from the edge of my desk, but didn't fall over.

My Problem

The battery was dead - it would last maybe an hour or so and had to be plugged in all the time

My Fix

The repair went alright. The iPhone 5 screen is a little challenging to get up since it's 2 layers glued together. The cables are also fidgety and a little hard to put back on so it took longer than expected. Since the battery has been changed, the phone can go a work day without having to be plugged in - it gets hot quite quickly though, which I don't remembering being the case before the change.

My Advice

Be careful when getting the screen off, make sure the spudger isn't just pulling up the top layer of the screen (it's 2 layers glued together).

My Problem

actually the glass was only broken but i couldn't find any one replacing the glass alone all of them were replacing the entire display in india. I just saw the website of iFIXIT on my face book account and came to know the spare parts are available at reasonable price. which can be replaced by watching their videos. so I had booked from india to my friend address in usa as the shipping to india from ifixit states more then a month and my friend was returning from US to INDIA

My Fix

The repair went smooth and I had little difficulty in removing the top panel but it took about 15 mins of time and then it came out easily.

after that I had removed the dispaly as per instruction and attached the new display recieved from IFIXIT .

I see a yellow spot on the display screen is it display problem or not is still not clear. i see it only when my background is white in colour.

My Advice

I would suggest others to go through this website which is very helpful and easy to understand and fix things by yourself as it saves time and money .

My Problem

Battery would only last 6 hours if I fully charged it and didn't even use it sometimes in the day.

My Fix

Repair went super easy!! Just that to open it at first you do have to use a little bit more force than you think you would.

My Advice

I would recommend to do a battery timer reset like I did. If you don't do it phone might think you still have the old battery and you won't tell a whole lot difference from the old one to the new one. You simply drain the battery to zero, let it rest over night(or 4-5 hours) then charge it to a 100% and keep charging it 2 more hours, then unplug it and do a hard restart(simply hold the home button a power button for 6 to 10 seconds then let go of the home button, and let go of the power button when you see the apple logo). And your done!! You will tell a much better difference if you do this!

My Problem

Phone was shutting off,with battery life showing 20-30%

My Fix

Repair went ok.

My Advice

Suction cup could be a little larger ,with more grip.

Used metal curved pick to get under battery,then pull straight up.

Carefully not to puncture battery

Easier to break the adhesive seal,than prying at various locations
