My Problem

Battery would not hold charge. The phone would go dead at 53% battery power.

My Fix

It was very simple.

I practice in my head several times before I actually began the process.

The tools that came with the package were perfect for the job.

My Advice

I am an old man who believes that practice makes perfect.

I did practice the procedure in my head several times before starting for real.

It was a very simple process.

My Problem

My battery would not hold a charge very long. Plus one minute it said it was fully charged next minute it said there was no charge. Apple store people told me the battery was defective, but it was out of warranty. It did not matter that the battery was defective from day one. It would be over $80 to replace the battery.

My Fix

I have used Ifixit before and had no problems with my iPhone 3. So I checked with Ifixit and sure enough they had all I needed to repair the iPhone sg5. The guide was perfect and it took all of 20 minutes. When done I could tell the difference right away. After running the battery down to less than 10% as the instructions said, I plug it in and charged it to 100%. Did not need to recharge for 3 days and even then it was not totally down. WOW

My Advice

I firmly believe that if you some mechanical ability Ifixit is the way to go. Just follow the guide and you cannot go wrong. I would recommend them for any repair of anything they have on their site. And you cannot beat the price. Mine went from over $80 to $35. I got the tools they recommend which added a few $s.

Great going Ifixit!!!!!

My Problem

Poor battery performance

My Fix

Not well. It was difficult to open the device without damaging the front panel. Ended up with entire front panel not working anymore.

My Advice

Don't try it

My Problem

Battery life reduced.

My Fix

It was a little bit hard to do.

My Advice

Installation guide was very helpfull. There is no need to much more.

My Problem

Old one died- it would charge up & I could watch the percentage drop down to zero in about an hour.

My Fix

Exactly as instructed with the tools- read the instructions at least 3 times to make sure I was knowledgeable at the "warning" and "be careful" spots.

My Advice

Put all of the removed screws and brackets, one at a time, into each pocket in an empty egg carton (1/2 dozen is enough). Then they can be replaced exactly in the order in which they came out. When I finished, I found the kit came complete with new screws, with new blue threadlock on them! I will save & replace them if anything gets loose but I regret not using them. Still the egg carton is a good idea even if only to match which size screw goes where.

My Problem

The battery that needed to be replaced was the original that came with the phone. The phone was purchased about a month after the iPhone 5 was released. That's a total of 3 years, 6 months and 23 days of usage which isn't bad. By the time I replaced it, the battery would only hold enough power to keep the phone on for about 3 hours.

My Fix

The entire job, start to finish, was pretty easy. I've disassembled and repaired every model iPhone over the years so I knew what to expect. The glue strips under the battery were a little more annoying than usual but all total the job went well.

My Advice

Take you're time if you're not familiar with the device breakdown. If the phone hasn't been taken apart before, expect some resistance when opening it. If you don't have a way to warm the phone up to make the glue under the battery more pliable then be patient with trying to remove it. If you get annoyed and try to pry it out you can easily puncture the old battery or damage the frame or internal components of the device. BE PATIENT! One last thing, make sure you have plenty of light...

My Problem

phone needed to be charged 3 times a day

My Fix

it went good old battery was hard to get out

My Advice

take your time get a big 3x3 white paper and do the repair over that the screws are very small

My Problem

Battery life short , wouldn't charge sometimes.

My Fix

Repair went wrong, I was using the suction cup to remove the glass panel and it was stuck. I applied more pressure and it abruptly let loose and the whole thing tore off and phone was destroyed.

My Advice

Be careful when removing glass.

My Problem

The phone was not holding a charge intermittently.

My Fix

The replacement procedure went without a hitch. The phone came to life with a half charge indicator. After that it would not charge even though it indicated it was charging. I attempted a DFU (I hope I remember the initials correctly) and that killed the phone rendering it useless. Would you like your battery back?

My Advice

This was a prelude to my replacing the slowly dying battery in my Mac Book Air. I am pretty discouraged, despite my own sound abilities to perform the physical actions necessary.

My Problem

Phone was running out of juice after just a few hours. I was headed to a meeting across town today using google maps as I navigated on my bicycle. Half-way into the trip, my battery died -- I missed the meeting. I decided it was time to open the repair kit!

My Fix

Meh, the video was helpful, but they failed to mention a couple points: almost every screw is different! The little cover over the battery connection...I got it on 180 degrees upside down.

Initially, display didn't work. A coworker who worked at the Apple Store previously had me up and running in 5 minutes.

My Advice

More details in the video pointing out the things to watch for during reassembly. The current video just kinda ends after you put the new battery in.

Also, what to do with the old battery?
