I guess they couldn't get the original sticker off that SONY battery. When I bought my current SMART Android phone, the agent told me the battery was not removeable. But that's what they told me before and I was able to replace it, twice. I haven't tried to take this one out but eventually I will.

While you are reading misspellings off the battery we can see that the words written are different from what you say. This makes you look unreliable. Watch your video - for example, see what you claim for the word "designated".

I was going to cheat on your trivia question but I’m the process of typing in my search bar “what Samsung battery wouldn’t you want to get” I remembered the catastrophe Samsung had a few years back with there release of the note 7. Thanks for the info you provide. I have gotten into fixing devices for people and when I have a question or before I open a device for the first time I regularly check you out just so I have a heads up of any hurtles that may come up.

If it looks like a battery that was made by apple it's a scam. I fixed my XR battery a year ago with a brand called DEJI and to this day I have had no issues with them. Some aftermarkets kits come with a warranty my suggestion is to try to find something with at least a warranty.

Re-labeled old batteries is as old as lithium batteries are. They've been doing the same with the 18650 and all other lithium. Lithium batteries = $$$ = scum, it's another one of the formulas of shining capitalism, where everything and everyone is a product to be used/squeezed/milked in any possible way. Where everything has a price scums flourish.

You might as well just 'rocycle' this crap without bothering to take it out of the plastic bag. You don't want to start a filre afer all. Filres are really dangerous, much more so than the more commonly encountered 'fires'. Love the CE mark. Must be safe with that on it.

While most of this is true. It is not impossible for repair shops to get genuine Samsung parts, or even Apple ones. You have to be certified and have techs who are certified as well. Apple officially only does repairs through Best Buy but other companies can become IRP approved through Apple. The shop I work at has genuine Apple OEM batteries because our franchise has signed deals with Apple. If we do not meet their standards they can stop offering us their oem parts.

It’s funny, my Samsung S3 would lose power every day. My contract had ended but I didn’t sign up for a new phone. After a month or so I started a month by month contract with the phone and believe it or not the battery suddenly would last for 2 or 3 days without running out. It wasn’t AP’s or games as I only used the phone for phone calls and text messages. Strange but true 🤪.

Cell phone batteries really are a big scam. I tend to keep a phone for 3-5 years if it works ok and the battery holds a decent charge. In the past I would just change out the battery and everything was fine. Now as I was told by a phone salesperson, cell phones are throw away ?? I asked why and he advised the phones tend to get old and new technology is coming out yearly. So the makers of cell phones decided to just make it very difficult to replace the battery, which forced you to buy another thousand dollar phone. Someone should file a class action lawsuit forcing the makers to allow easy change outs of the batteries.

Governments should use the flavour of the moment and hit these tech companies with climate change levees related to the reduction in electronic waste by allowing items to be repaired and genuine replacement parts to be made available so reducing the cheap Chinese tat, that's inevitably filling landfill in the west all for a " bargain" product which the original manufacturers are deliberately withholding.

I bought a cheap off-brand battery for my Nintendo 3ds once. It claimed to have more than twice the capacity. However it was also ~2,5 times larger than the original and grew over the batteryslot. It came with an extended rear cover to fit the larger battery. I never made a direct comparision but I can confirm that the batterylife of my 3ds increased by alot so it defenitly worked! Also the increased size made it much more comfortable to hold. So that cheap battery was actually a good purchase.
