    1. Don't trust aftermarket batteries. Especially ones that say they have a longer life.

    2. The iPhone doesn't use any sort of drive, its Flash Memory on the Logic Board. Upgrading the space requires a Logic Board swap.

    3. Backlit home button? Never heard of it.

    4. No Touch ID on the 5. It requires an additional connector on the logic board and the A7 chip. Plus, each A7 chip is paired with the Touch ID sensor, so using parts from different phones would lead to non-functioning Touch ID.
