Original N7. Does anyone know how to replace the battery? Appears to be a sealed unit...



Or do I bin it and buy a new one?

not user replaceable and probably marginal if it is even cost effective to get it done in shop.

The views stated in my posts are my personal views and not that of any other organisation.


 Mac user, Windows curser, Chrome OS desired.


The great divide is the lies from both sides.

Have you tried a factory reset? The one we have here (original) had shocking battery life. Something was chewing the battery and a factory reset sorted it. Also the kids watch youtube videos and I think leaving the youtube app up and hitting power off keeps the youtube app active (but not playing) and this seemed to kill the battery as well.

Cheers, Matt.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
