  2. Is there any way to remove the vibration motor and keep the sliding side button working? Thanks for the video great job

  3. So this phone isn't held together by adhesive!? If so I'm pleased it can be easy. My alert slider is stuck. It moves, but I have to use force. Like something stuck in it. Is there an easier fix? If so I'll take it, but if not this looks fairly simple. Hoping I won't have to replace the part.

  4. I just received my OnePlus 3 vibration motor but is an used one. Without adhesive film and worn electrical contacts. Dissapointed!
