    I seem to have an invisible touch, yeah. I've gone and wrote a detailed review of Nokia 1.3, an entry-level budget-price smartphone running Android Go, including specifications, ergonomics and back cover removal trouble, first-time setup, privacy settings, Play Store and applications, media playback, camera quality, performance and responsiveness, battery life, and more. Have a look.

    My Nokia 1.0 - Android One (Go Edition), with Android 9 Pie cost just US$59.
    And yes, you get what you pay for - a no frills phone to send and receive calls [audio or text].
    It seems not a lot has changed, especially the back cover.
    Code:
    The manual says - insert your finger in the crack between the back cover and the display, lift and bend the back cover. Sounds simple.
    I will admit that I LMFAO reading about your exploits with that.
    Given the price range this phone is in I suspect that problem will remain forever.

    USA still the best. But barely.
    Non-starter for me at 1GB RAM.
