Decided to swap the dying "non-removable" battery of my trusty old smartphone. So I ordered a new battery from the internet and opened the phone without issues (thanks to only to learn the new battery does not fit in. Sequentially tried another two batteries from different resellers, same story.

All of them are advertised as compatible with my phone and even carry the same parts number as the original one 🙄



... After messaging a vendor, it turns out you are supposed to slightly bend the battery in order to make it fit.
