One Plus Two – Screen Repair, Charging Port Fix, Battery Replacement


(Electronic Sound Effects) Today we’re going to be taking apart the OnePlus
Two, one of the newest phones from the company OnePlus. The back is removable, easy enough.
You can just pop that off with your hands. Then there are six rubber caps on top of the
screws. Remove those to remove the double sim card tray and then take your screwdriver.
I will link parts and tools down in the video description, so take a look at those. There
are 18 screws around the back of this phone. Then you can just lift up the back plate,
set it off to the side, and this is the best-looking phone I have ever been inside. Hit that like
button if you like the giant red battery. There’s a piece of tape over the battery connection
and the charging port connection, so lift that off and then pop up the two little ribbing
cable connections. They’re like little LEGOs. You can just lift them up. And then you can
lift the battery up and out of the phone. Here is the battery. It is a 3300 milliamp
but it also says on here that it’s a minimum of a 3200 milliamp so I guess they have some
fluctuation in battery quality. Here is the charging port ribbing cable, you can just
lift that up out of the phone. That’s one of the best things about this phone is that
the charging port is replaceable. That’s usually one of the first things to go out on a phone
besides the battery. It is a type C charging port, it’s not the normal USB one, so it’s
very similar to the new Apple Lightning charger where you can take the charging cable and
plug it in either way whether it’s upside down or right side up. There are two little
ribbing cables down here at the bottom, just lift those off the board. And then there’s
a wire cable as well, lift that out. And then the board itself should pop out from the phone.
You have the vibrator motor right here, and then contact points for the loudspeaker right
here. The loudspeaker is just sitting on the back plate. Here is the rear-facing camera,
just unclip that from the board and pull it up at an angle. This guy is a 13 megapixel
camera capable of recording in 4k. Does have video stabilization as well. Here’s the front-facing
camera. Lift that up and out of the phone. Five megapixels, it’s a cute little guy. There’s
another piece of tape holding down these two ribbing cables, as well as a screw, on the
right of the motherboard. So unconnect those ribbing cables, as well as this little wire
cable. Be gentle with them, you can pop that connection off the board and break it. Here’s
some grounding tape on top of this ribbing cable, I’m going to lift that up gently and
then unsnap the ribbing cable from the board. That releases the motherboard from the frame.
I’m going to lift that out. Here you can see the motherboard, it’s got the dual LED flash
on it as well as the headphone jack. The headphone jack is not replaceable. It also has some
thermal paste on the back. I’m assuming this is for the processor or the memory to help
keep it cool. And then here is the earpiece, you can just pop that out from the mainframe
as well. So here is the screen. It’s got the screen itself, the glass, the LCD, as well
as the frame on the back that holds all the components. In the past, OnePlus has sold
these screens as a unit, fused together with plastic frame and the glass. Hopefully they
continue that in the future. Now, if they don’t you’re going to have to heat up the
front of the screen and separate the screen from the frame and put the frame on your new
screen later. You can watch my Note 5 screen replacement video to see the same process
done. But hopefully they sell the screens as a unit because it’s a much easier repair
that way. Go ahead and reassemble the phone. Hit that subscribe button if you like what
you’ve seen so far. Go ahead and snap those ribbing cables down into place. Be careful
with this grounding sticker as well, don’t want to rip that. And then putting the tape
back on the ribbing cables as well. Here’s the front-facing camera, going to snap that
down into place and just line up the waffle connection over the main board and press it
down. You’ll hear it click into place, you’ll know it’s connected. Rear camera goes in.
The bottom board snaps down into place. Be careful with those wire cables, those are
very easy to break. Snapping the two ribbing cables down. And then the charging port goes
back in. Just kind of scoot that type C charging port down into the bottom of the frame, and
the frame will hold it in place. Snap the waffle connector in. And then just set the
whole ribbing cable down into the phone so the battery won’t pinch it or tweak it anywhere
when you put the battery into place. Once you get the battery in there, snap it down
as well and take that tape that you took off earlier and set it down on top of the two
ribbing cable connectors. And then the back of the phone snaps in as well. And I’m going
to turn on the phone really quick, just to make sure everything’s connected and everything’s
working, before I put those 18 screws back into place. Everything’s looking good, so
put your dual sim card tray back into the back, and get those little rubber circle pieces
back on top of their screw holes. Back of the phone gets put on, and you are good to
go. I did do a durability test on this phone where I took a razor blade and scratched the
screen, and tried to bend the phone in half. Go ahead and check out that video if you’re
interested and check out a couple of my other tear down videos. Thanks a ton for watching,
