简介

Users of this guide will be able to remove the connections from the motherboard to gain access to their battery. This repair is much more difficult compared to other phones' battery replacements. Be careful not to damage any other components during the repair.

  1. Insert a microSD card eject tool or a paperclip into the small hole in the microSD card tray, located on the upper right hand side of the phone above the volume buttons. Press to eject the tray. This may require a significant amount of force.

    • This may require a significant amount of force.

    • When reinserting the microSD card, ensure that it is in the proper orientation relative to the tray. The contacts should be inserted first and face to rear side.

I replaced the battery now but encountered a problem, as my phone wasn't working properly afterwards. When I switched on, it kind of reset to default and the play store app kept crashing, so I had to do a factory reset

You tore the power and volume button cable. It's a $10 replacement, no big deal. I did the same thing even after having repaired phones for years now.
