Is it easy to replace a battery?

Just wondering how difficult it will be to replace a battery in the future of my G2? If it requires soldering or is to difficult to replace at home does LG offer any kind of service for this?

It is under multiple layers of stuff and heavily glued down.. LG would not offer it but maybe some other service would if the G2 is popular enough to be supported.

I saw in another thread a guy who said he removed it by just squeezing his nail and pulling it out. I can't remember what post, but it was about using steel wool grade 0000 to remove the glossy back. Try using that on the search.

Yeah but he meant the cover. The battery is way harder to remove.

What you see in the photo is just the top 'step' of the battery. LG's new battery design flares out under the plastic.

Wow I wish it was easier then that. Hopefully something LG does makes a battery service possible. I hate to think that my phone will become a paperweight do to a dead battery in 5 years. I'd like to keep this phone as a digital music player.
