Ordered the ifixit bat replacement for the xt1575 Moto X Pure Edition smartphone. Just recently finished putting back together, works like a champ. battery calibration session atm.
Old bat.


Used this vid tut. Only part he left out is reconnecting the ribbon cable connectors. That both clip downward onto the plug for one and the pins for the other. I used tweezers and the spudge thing, took 15seconds. Overall took 2 and a 1/2 hours, tear down, cleaned old glue and back together. A lot easier than anticipated.

Edit:
I used a wagner heat gun which helped out so much getting that back off.

still doing battery collaboration.
I charged it to 100% +2hrs last night, pulled it off charge it went through 6% for 7 hours with my screen off which is a lot better than before, I need drop it to where the phone shuts off of no power, charge it to 100% with uninterrupted charging. and it'll be completed.

Taking forever to drain, using brightness at highest and playing a waterfall 9 hour youtube video to help drain it.

And also I notice my phone isn't getting hot like it use to with brightness at highest and streaming.

That's one thing keeping me from buying a more recent phone, one can't change the battery without heat gun and extra tools, risking damage to the device during a lengthy process. All done to sell more phones.
Takes about 10 seconds to change battery on my old phone. Calibration what? Don't need that, the only thing that can be useful for is getting software to better estimate remaining charge based on power usage and estimated/measured total battery capacity. For operation of battery/charging/discharging itself it is not necessary to calibrate anything, certainly not for single cell 1S1P batteries in phones.

Does Motorola still make smartphones? I don't seem to hear much about them anymore at all.

Yep. A few of the best reviewed new phones in 2019 came from Motorola.

Here's one popular review I found - https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/be...android-phone/

I'm actually glad to hear that. Does Motorola still make IC's anymore? I remember they used to manufacture DSP's and CPU's (the PowerPC).

Yep, its one of the many anti-consumer features in phones these days, unfortunately. Its not that hard depending on the phone, a hair drying and a razor blade does the job in a few minutes, give or take. I always order a replacement back glass panel with the battery as well(they're pretty cheap), so if you crack it, it doesn't really matter.

There's still one company (Fairphone) that makes a fully repairable phone with a swappable battery, and all parts available on their website. But for what you're getting, the price isn't great(and that's kind of an understatement).

Only one company makes phones w/replaceable batteries? That's the pits.

Well there's a bunch of low end stuff as well, of which the The Nokia 2.2 is a pretty decent deal for €100.

But if you're looking for mid range and upwards, its just the Fairphone 3 as far as I'm aware.
Edit: And the price on that thing is awful, you could pretty much buy 3 non-removable battery phones with the same specs for that price and just junk them every time the battery starts to degrade.

That stinks. When the LG G4 was released it proved that user replaceable batteries don't need to be difficult to swap or add cost to the device. You could even get a battery caddy to have a spare charged and ready to swap if you were going on a long trip or such.

Though I'm told the majority of people didn't bother to use the replaceable battery feature and so it wasn't even considered for future phone iterations after the G5.
