It’s going to be almost near impossible for handyman individuals to replace phone batteries in the upcoming years. Companies are implementing methods to further complicate repairing/replacing procedures. I don’t see an incentive in buying a $900- $1,100 smartphone that will only last 3 years (if battery use is moderated to a minimum). To make matters worse, third-party vendors like iFixit aren’t improving their tools necessary in making it easier to repair/replace. As repairing/replacing prices climb higher and higher every year by $20, it is becoming more unlikely in even considering repairing or replacing something simple like a phone battery for the upcoming years.
Once they have, you'll be able to view a graph of their reputation gained over time.
Here's a preview of what the graph will look like:
