We first remove the bottom of the small circuit boards, just twist off fixing screws when removing. The demolition process is relatively simple, but a lot of fixed screws must be more patient.

In a small circuit board has a fixed cable is not removable, and 3.5mm headphone jack components and speaker components are fixed, also can not be demolished. The advantage of this is that there is no connection problem between components, even if the accidental fall of mobile phone components will not loose the situation.

Motherboard close-up. Mobile phone chip on the motherboard with a fixed shield to protect, but the shield is not removable certain extent will affect the cooling of the chip.

And OnePlus 3T adopt the fixed frame and removable shield cover way to balance perfectly between the protection chip and cooling problems. And there are thermal grease on the shield, to further enhance the heat dissipation performance.

After removing the shield will be able to see the “face of each chip”. Red: 128GB UFS 2.0 flash memory chip; Green: audio amplifier chip; Blue: Qualcomm WTR3925 RF chip; Yellow: Qualcomm QCA6164A wireless control chip.

Speak the battery, OnePlus 3T battery capacity of 3400mAh, In the case of body size has not changed Oneplus 3T has a larger capacity battery, the battery duration life is better.

Although it is a bit difficult to remove the back cover, it is fairly easy to replace the internals after that. Please note that teardowns will most definitely void your warranty so if you are planning to do the same on your device, keep that in mind.
