Anybody change out a battery in a Droid Turbo 2? My phone is in perfect working condition except the battery. I've found how to videos and it looks like a huge PITA!! My wife's LG, pop the back off, change out the battery and done but not mine.


Phones are so expensive I don't want another one.

Take it to Batteries Plus and let them deal with the PITA operation.

Batteries+

I second the Batteries Plus idea! Phones suck. Have an apple iphone. The phone does take descent pictures. Got to have a something that can take and send descent pictures for warranty at work. Not to impressed with it. The first one did not last a year, the warranty covered the cost of the new supposedly, still cost me $200 out of pocket to get the second one. Switched from one of the biggest carries to save us some money, what a joke, did not save us anything to speak of.

I agree batteries+ or look into those small cellphone repair shops you might see in strip malls

Not that this helps you at all, but I have the 1st Droid turbo, 3-1/2 years on it. Zero issues. I use it often each day. Although I get only 1 day on battery this last year it's still running great. On the bike it's running maps, music, full brightness while charging. It does get pretty hot. Especially in full summer sun. Never shut down

What I think got me this far is I only charge it with a regular charger. Not the fast quick chargers. The quick chargers made my phone hot. Only time I use turbocharger is on the bike. Regular charger won't keep up to the battery drain while everything is running.

Extend a device's battery life by not charging above 90% and no draining below 20%.

Lot of phones are sealed up now so a pain to open them up for anything and you can't really get them sealed up the same afterwards.

There are a ton of little strip mall shops go shop around and get estimates for doing it. Some might warranty the work I dunno.

I run phones usually 4 years that's end of life. Then buy another and sell the old on eBay. :)

The biggest problem I'm having is it shuts off at 20-30-40-50% battery life, always on an even number. The battery would easily last all day plus if it didn't do that. After it shuts down even at 50% I can't restart it unless it's attached to a charger.
