    I paid 40€ two years ago for a perfect-conditions one (wifi only) and I also found a physic Fifa 15 inside, a 16 gb memory card and some games installed in. Crazy uh?

    How do you get the screws back in all the way? I've got a crampy hand from trying to get them back in with such a teeny weeny screwdriver.

    You should have replaced the back and battery as well. I have the original oled 3g model as well as a slim. The oled 3g battery doesn't last much more than half of what it used to. Luckily, I don't have to replace anything, but the battery. Both Vitas look brand new. I take very good care of my stuff. I don't even have have screen protectors.

    Would battery live improve with the newer oled screen, because of better or newer technology...?

    Your comment regarding the screws not going in as nice... I suspect the screws are self tappers and there is likely NO thread in the plastic posts in the replacement part. You are feeling the first cut of fresh thread.
