Adam from Torrance, CA
iFixIt Pixel 4XL Battery Replacement Kit

Adam got a Pixel 4XL Android phone, but now it has a bad battery. He sent it in, but it looks like they got him a refurbished replacement phone. Leo says the same thing happened to him. The problem is that his replacement phone is doing the same thing. So he sent it back again and got yet another replacement phone. If it happens again, can he replace the battery? Leo says it's possible, but the battery is stuck in with glue strips. You have to be careful replacing the battery, but it could be done. iFixit could help show you how to do it. Understand though; it could void your warranty doing so.
