          They will never ever be totally pro repair ever. Just big enough talk to pretend as pro-repair so others won't notice their other actions.

Take 2 iphones out of the box new and then take screen off from both of them and just change them. There will be all types of problems like camera dont work and face id dont work and so on even tough it's same screen from same model of new phone. They probably have some software built in for battery too so you cant change it on your own

                  They should pass law to make it mandatory to put headphone jack. Even if one country did it, these greedy OEMs would have no choice.

You forgot the heat gun/hotplate, solvent to remove the glue and careful maneuvers so as not to break the motherboard or screen when removing the back panel and/or battery.

                          If you want to repair the battery, it can still be done, just not that easy as the removable one.

                            Words are said and bread is eaten anyway.
                            Still once you drown your phone you have to pay full repair cost equal to brand new device.
                            Because no company gives water damage warranty.

                                    Bebochekov, 04 Jun 2022Batteries are glued in now, they can be hard to get out. iPhones are not so difficult to get out but Samsung seems to hold active contempt for the very idea of replacing the battery.

                                      Good news for them, but it is a little oh so late to make that decision lol.

                                        Now this is some actual good news. I hope Canada will also copy its neighboring country and adopt such a law too.
