Somehow I accumulated 3 cell phones...a Nexus 4, 5 & 6...figured I'd never need another...if one fails I have two more...not so...within 2 weeks the charging port on the 5 failed and then the display on the 4 started to pop off as did the back...wtf? fair bit of force required to push it back and it would not stay in place...the only thing I could think of was the battery was failing and expanding...bought a replacement assembly for the 5...that was an easy replacement...popped open the 4 and the battery was "inflated"...should be a flat rectangle maybe an eighth of an inch thick...it was not...did not know the Nexus 4 had a replaceable battery...looks like it and the 5 do...now I need to find one. And...repairs are easy.
