My Problem

My son-in-law gave me his old iPhone 5 which had been lying in a drawer for a few years to replace my antique Samsung candy bar phone.

My Problem

Replaced bulging battery

My Fix

Pretty straightforward, the screws holding the battery and display connector reinforcements are very tiny. I lost two to the carpet abyss, be very careful with them. The phone I fixed is not my daily driver, so I had no problem putting everything back together without the err . . .

My Problem

The original phone battery was dying, so I had it replaced but the replacement battery seemed to perform even worse than the original, and had degraded to the point where the phone would die at 30-40% battery if I did anything CPU intensive.
