System sluggishness including texting. In addition, battery settings indicated that my phone potentially needed a battery replacement.
Overall great learning experience with a few hiccups along the way. For example, in retrospect I don’t think removing connectors other than the one for the battery was necessary unless you really want to separate the screen from the working area.
During my first iteration of the process I discovered that I had not reconnected all connectors (except battery connector) correctly as my phone did not start up after putting it back together. I tried charging it thinking perhaps the new battery was completely drained and was not successful. So I reopened the phone and ensured the connectors actually “clicked” during the mating process. Did this for all connectors with the exception of the battery connector. Reassembled and success! Phone started right up and has been functioning great ever since.
Secondly, the battery connector does not come “molded” to the spacing/configuration between the battery and the connector fitting.
If indeed connectors other than the battery connector are not required to remove perhaps make that an option in the instructions. This will greatly reduce the battery replacement process.
Keeping in mind that the connectors are very sensitive, make a note in the instructions that during the remating process you should somewhat feel the clicking/snapping in place of the connector. I think people can very conservative (as I was) in this step and that can delay the overall process if not mated correctly the first time around.
Lastly, it’d be great if the battery connector( metal flat part) came “molded” for a more efficient drop-in mate. This should be a simple fix given the standard internal dimensions per phone. It would again greatly reduce the process time. Thanks. Jorge M.
