Mijn probleem

The battery drained relatively quickly, though still at an acceptable level but the status percentage was simply not reliable: every now and then it would switch off even though there were meant to be 30+ % remaining.

Mijn oplossing

The Kit itself is great and works as it should. Unfortunately (for me) I didn't have to pry when trying to open the phone - the entire front assembly came off in one piece, which then resulted in a damaged flex cable I guess. After re-assembling the phone, the screen did show vertical white and grey stripes that would not disappear even if I opened the phone again and tried to better connect the cable to the socket. In the end only a new screen / front assembly helped, so I saved money on the battery but spent it on a screen instead. Cannot blame the fix kit and instructions though.

Mijn advies

It just was a very bad case for me and I wanted to put this up as a warning for others: please pay attention and be prepared for surprises such as the screen coming off easier than you'd expect it to.
