Good afternoon,

Tell me what you can say on the problem faced by many users of the device.

When you connect the original or third-party charger with fast charging Functions or without fast charging function, and sometimes when using cordless phone charging on the charge indication is presented but charging rate is 1-3% per hour. This problem occurs on the Droid Turbo 2 and X force.

I would like to hear your opinion on this issue.

Several units are plagued by a vertical green line that appears on LCD (just search for Moto X Force or Droid Turbo 2 Green Line). Bad flex or bad LCD ?

NCQ - Reply

There should be problem of lcd screen flex.

I have a UK Moto X Force. I have noticed that the green line appears when You push harder between the screen and right loudspeaker hole. it disapears when I remove my finger. I hope this green line wont become permanent :/

:) Several very odd responses to this teardown, so I'll be the first to say.....

Thanks very very much Eric and other contributers, for taking the time to leave this guide. It's perfect and helped me get the thing apart without killing it - aint they a pain when they keep turning back on? I just want to mention thsi one extra bit.....

Be careful when prizing the back off the phone, it stuck so well on the one I've just done (even though I've fixed dozens of phones and am very familiar with the 'heating up' process to soften the glue, well in fidlling about with it, I was horrified to see I'd pressed the buttons in just the right way to get it to boot into its RECOVERY menu, and one more button press would have erased the customers contents!! *gulps*.

This happened despite the fact that the phones battery has been so flat it could never turn on beyond showing the Flat Battery logo - still had enough power to get into Recovery LoL.

Many thanks again Eric :-)
