Has anyone else run into the different screws holding the midframe? I opened my son's phone today to swap out the battery and found the screws to be tri-wing. Imagine my confusion. I've been into to my wife's Nexus 5x before, and it has phillips-head screws. Weird.

I’m trying to confirm whether or not the antenna for cellular signal resides in the loudspeaker, or the bottom section of the midframe. If I replace the bottom piece of the midframe, am I replacing the cellular antenna?
