  • In the Huawei authorized service centers, official parts (that huawei also sells to public), display NEVER come on their own as a piece, thats why it is so difficult to remove from mid frame, because its not suppose to do that. Official screen part from Huawei always comes with screen, mid frame and battery already attached to it (thats just how they make the part), so the repair is actually quite easy with the original and not aftermarket parts. Do not blame Huawei for making the phone hard to repair just because you used aftermarket parts.

  • why do they not use a bracket? because you people kept asking for thinner and thinner phones. now there is no room for a battery case and bracket, so they glue them in place. general rule of thumb, if every company is doing it, there is a reason, and it's most likely not a conspiracy to screw you over, because then all it would take is one company to decide not to screw you over by doing it an easier way, and they'd attract a lot more business. Edit: to give you a frame of reference on how this works, the higher ups give the engineers general desires, and then the engineers try to fit those requirements as closely as possible. usually this is a hierarchical list that starts with "we want to manufacture it for x price" and then goes dimensions, required features, optional features, then anything else special they want done.

  • 8:28 I would trash that phone, because that heatsink/shield is bent inward probably touching some components it shouldn't, caused by those huge gauges on the screen/chassis, if it wasn't then I would fix those dents to avoid shorting the battery or any other components.

As you would expect I'll have wall to wall coverage of the biggest transition in the Macs recent history, starting with concurrent SEworld & Twitch coverage of the event. As usual, Noah and I will be live one hour before the event kicks off to talk about what we expect, hang out with chat, and work on our Bingo board for the event. We'll be streaming during the event with cues to help you guys sync our coverage with Apple's stream, and then we'll be on for reactions after the stream concludes. Follow me on Twitter @lukemiani for updates!
