  1. Why doesn't your replacement battery in the video have the part that's supposed to hold it in there? Other replacement batteries I've shopped for have something attached to it to screw it into the phone.

  3. I purchased a new battery for my HTC One (M9) from Fixez. I also purchased the 16-Piece Precision Repair Tool Kit they offer as well. I watched this video, pausing after each step is explained. I also re-watched each step after completing it to verify i did it correctly. Took about 30 minutes, but i was able to successfully replace my battery. The tool kit really was a real asset and could not have completed the repair without it. For others, just take your time and don't rush. Thanks Fixez!

  4. You definitely need to put a warning about the power/volume button strip that is easy to break. Otherwise excellent guide
