If its battery they will do a 5min swap. I learned this week how to use my 3D printer to repair the back glass on my S20.

Just heated the printer bed to 100C and used that to maintain a nice hot temp while I pulled the cracked back plate off. Underneath, gives easy access to the battery unit which is simply pulled out like the batteries of old.

Just need to start a side business now.

The back plate only cost me £20 for the official one and the swap took 15mins for a first time try.

They charge about £100 or more to do it over here. It could fund my dream Fanatec Wheel setup.

Matter of time. Already running a few 3D prints for profit. Now I can expand to phone repair

What I cant repair I can maybe pick up from the company. Who knows... There are so many unused terminals and devices in our locker its crazy. Yet we arent allowed to give them away without permission from Sony, Samsung, Apple etc, which is always "no"

For those wanting F1 2021. I would suggest holding off for now. It seems that EA is working towards adding it to EA Play and EA Play pro post launch which means XGP users will be able to access it provided the standard version comes to EA Play.

So I got my phone back the other day and they claim they didn't do anything and the phone was operating to spec, but on one corner the plastic was damaged, so I'm suspecting they replaced the battery didn't say so as they don't want anymore battery controversy, cause my phone hasn't gone flat once since it's gotten back.

Its quite possibly they opened it but changed nothing. Maybe there was something with the wiring. e.g. contacts shortcircuiting and actually draining it which would cause damage in the long run.

I do wonder though... Samsung switched to plastic away from Glass. It makes me wonder if its because of mediocre batteries, and less effort to remove plastic backs instead of glass.

Well bud this phone is Gorilla glass front and back but like you say I'm sure the rest are plastic and it could be mediocre batteries.
And you could be right about the shortciruiting I just found it suss that they said nothing wrong when everything changed.
