Replacing Galaxy S6 battery

Hi,

What's the most reasonably priced method of replacing the Galaxy S6 battery with an original Samsung battery, or a quality OEM?
1. Go to Samsung service center
2. Shops that provide the battery changing service
3. Purchase battery online and change myself.

I would say Option 2? Cos the S6 isn't waterproof right? So whether done the service centre or other repair shops doesn't really matter... so I would go for the cheaper and more hassle-free option...

I read online that Samsung s6 could fit in Samsung s7 edge battery which is a heap load bigger and works reliably.

Thanks. Any recommendations and would you know how much it costs?
I ever asked in Singapore shops they charged like $60 to $80.

Don’t do it
It’s not certified by Samsung.
The last thing we want is an exploded phone - compressed cells, not good idea

Sorry dug weeks old thread.

TS, you managed to changed your S6 battery? I wanted to change mine for months but still haven't got to it.

A simple google shows at least 3 places offering the service. Wonder did you got yours change? Thanks.

I have the same question!

Any recommended location(s) to have the battery replaced? Mine doesn't seem to be able to be charged any more.

Sorry for digging up this thread. Anyone found out how much a replacement battery costs at Samsung repair centre versus Ah Beng shops?

Samsung center quoted me about $150 to replace battery whereas I managed to get it replaced at LITE Mobile Repair for $38 (non Samsung genuine, OEM replacement battery). Nine months liao battery still going strong
