Hello, have a question if it's even worth replacing the battery. Had a samsung galaxy s9 stored away for a few years. Went to use it an noticed whole back cover was lifted off. An looked online mostly stating battery swelling. If the battery is replaced will the device work like normal. Or would there be issues with battery effecting the hardware. Tried charging it for half hour an just lit white icon. Removed the screws to remove battery. Pretty simple just seeing if anyone has tried this successfully.

A couple months ago or late last year, there has been a whole trend of samsung batteries swelling for old phones that have been kept in storage for a while. A battery change will definitely fix it, though I dont know if there are replacement batterjes that havent swelled yet or is available.
