This video will show how to replace the battery inside the Axon 7 as well as the charging port, and the screen itself. So if any of those components break on your own device, you have the option to repair it. If you cant find replacement parts, you can always buy another Axon 7 and splice them together to make one working phone.

    What adhesive did you use to glue the grills?

    I dropped my phone today and half my screen was random pixels. I saw this video and thought I was screwed since you need a hot air gun… Got an idea to just push down really hard where the LCD connector is.. and pop screen fixed. Thanks

    What a huge pain in the ass to tear down.

    Some tips:

    * The speaker covers take a good amount of heat to get off, but make sure you aren't using too much or you'll melt your covers. get a really sharp pointed object and start on one of the top corners, then work your way across.

    * Getting the frame separated is a lot harder than it looks. Work your way around getting it loose then focus on one side with a strong metal bit like he did.

    * The speaker is again really on there. I wouldn't recommend using heat for safety reasons. I worked my way up and down the right side getting my object just a little farther in each time. It will take a while and a good amount of force.

    * Unless you add your own adhesive it's probably not going to hold the corners down great. Even if you are super careful you'll probably have some distortion on the covers. Basically your phone isn't going to look like new anymore. Keep that in mind determining if you really need to replace whatever you're replacing.

    ZACH!! QUESTION my top earpiece quit working after about 2 months and then the bottom speaker also quite.. I've factory reset it several times and it didn't help anything.. I've got the phone apart is the any advice you could give me to fix it or is it a motherboard problem? Thanks any ideas would really help…also the headphone jack works fine.👊😊

    Why would they connect the SoC to the battery with a heat-pipe? If they battery heats up from charging etc. then it overheats the SoC. If the SoC is over worked it will heat up the battery. Either way this seems like a dumb idea. I would think that they would want to heatsink or heat-pipe the SoC to the aluminum back plate.

    Hey, mine won't boot after replacing the screen, gets all the way through the boot sequence until it should display the lockscreen, the phone then powers down. Any thoughts of which part I may have damaged?

  8. Kaspar Ermert says:

    Where is the memory-unit placed?

  9. Eric Skelton says:

    "the headphone jack is saudered into place" worst news I'm heard all day, mines fucked

    speaker spare part is same as nokia 5800?

  11. KeRIIval says:

    Guys does this phone have wireless charging?

  12. Gujiko Khintibidze says:

    Hey, I watched your video. My axon works well except my power button is broken/or either stuck and cant be pressed. Can you reply to me and tell me wether I will be able to fix it with just disassembling it? Do I need to buy any part at all?

  13. Tefen Ca says:

    The ZTE 3140mAh batteries found on eBay look like the proper OEM batteries to replace with compared to the Cameron Sino 3100mAh batteries found on Amazon. Replacement procedure is best done by carefully heating speaker grills & having spare 2-sided tape to place back on. Also heat the battery by running something like Daydream or Pokemon GO while charging to loosen the glue for easy removal. DO NOT RISK USING HEAT GUN on the battery! This can lead to leaking/exploding the battery and/or melting the screen or damaging other components.

    Bonus Tip: I would suggest fully removing the thermal compound with a microfiber cloth and Isopropyl 99%(not 70%) then replace it with some high quality thermal compound like Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or Prolimatech PK-3.

    Any ideas on how to fix a blacked out half screen on ZTE Axon 7? Specific steps if possible??

  15. Jesse Brink says:

    I have this phone for over a year now and it is great! Only thing is that my battery life isn't what it used to be. Do you think I can replace the battery myself? I am kinda handy with electronics but never assembled a phone lol..

  16. 3Colito says:

    Did you ever heard about a problem with the left half of the screen? My Axon 7 fell down from a table and now the left half of the screen turns grey sometimes and do not respond to touch. I think I will follow your steps and take a look inside
