The battery is a delicate and critical component of a cell phone, and great care should be taken when replacing it. The Motorola Moto X 2nd generation phone battery can be replaced without any specialized skills and only a few standard maintenance tools. Make sure to power off the phone completely and disconnect from all cables. You should always back up your phone data when replacing a critical component to avoid any losses due to accidental damage. Take additional care if the battery is swollen..

Are you friggin' kidding me. Why would Motorola make a major project out of simply removing a battery. Definately needs to be simplified. It'seems like doing friggin' surgery on a phone.

I'd call this battery replacement requirement 'built in obsolescence'! There's no way I'd attempt this. I'd rather buy a new phone. Then again, that's probably why it's so complicated...

LOL Obviously you've never replaced a laptop motherboard ;)

How do you repeat the steps in reverse such that you replace the adhesive holding the battery in place? Does a new battery come with the adhesive?
