Hello I wondering if after say 6 months - 1 year of use if we could replace the battery of the HTC One S somehow because my limited knowledge tells me the battery capacity will be much lower after 6 month - 1 year of use.
Thanks!

I highly doubt you can replace it yourself, the back is one whole peice, I'm gonna say that your gonna have to take it to a retail store so they can replace it for you bcuz I kinda asked the same question at the store and they said to just bring in the phone and we'll replace it for you but im not too sure about that, if you don't mind taking apart your phone to replace a battery you could buy a battery from amazon or eBay and just look up how to tear down the one s but the decision is all yours, its your device.....hopefully this kinda helped you

Lol my bad, maybe he wants to do it him self which I really wouldnt recommend at this point but each user makes his own decision, everyone is different....he may want to do it himself (i wouldn't recommend). Im just putting ideas out there you know whatever he chooses to do is his decision but he should think about the consequences should he choose to do it himself, but hey everyone is different so....think about it b4 you make a decision....

Umm, why not? I've opened my phone several times. The battery looks pretty easy to replace.

Dont quote me on this but I've read while it's not hard to take the back out, the battery appeared to be soldered or some other way permanently attached. Not the battery itself but the wires coming from it. I heard the wires aren't just a clip connection to the board but soldered or some other way

HTC One S Screen Repair Directions | DirectFix
Check this video of One S disasembly out, it may be helpful. Removing the back cover doesn't seem hard at all and the battery is is not soldered, as you can see in the video (somewhere around 3:40 they remove the battery connector).

Allow me to disagree. It appears to be a very straight forward task. You have to:
1. Remove the two plastic covers
2. Unscrew 4 screws
3. Unplug the old battery and plug in the new one
4. Screw the 4 screws, mentioned in step 2
5. Place back the plastic covers

If that sounds dangerous to you, maybe you are probably right not to do it yourself.

P.S. I do not take any responsibility whatsoever for other people's skills or lack of skills and the potential damage they may cause to their devices

LOL. You're assuming that I don't have the technical skill to take apart a phone because you lack the ability. The One S isn't my first rodeo; the process is straight forward and even a halfwit monkey could do it. If you lack the technical skills of a halfwit monkey than excuse me for my disrespect and I admire your willingness to blend into a social setting with your illness.

My battery, nor the wires, were soldered. I was/am thinking about transferring to black casing.

EDIT: Z3ra7uL; You got to the video first :] Plus thanks to you.
