How to Disassemble the Galaxy S7 for Battery Replacement?

1. Power off the device and remove the Galaxy S7 SIM card tray.

Once you remove the SIM card tray, you'll find it's wearing a waterproof adhesive.


2. Remove the Galaxy S7 back cover.

Heat up along the sides of Galaxy S7 for 1~2 minutes, the back cover is glued to the rear housing with waterproof adhesive, which is pretty sticky. Pay your patience on this step and make sure the Galaxy S7 back cover adhesive is nicely warm and loosen.

Pop up the back cover a little bit with the help of a screen separator tool, carefuly insert the plastic tip into the back cover and and run it along the edges of Galaxy S7 back cover. The adhesive is easily cooled down, you'll need to heat it up back and forth before releasing the back cover. Likewise, be patient.

Now the Galaxy S7 back cover was pulled out from a large portion of strong adhesive as you can see from the below picture, also avoid to hurt the fingerprint sensor in the middle of rear housing while you're heating.


3. Release the Galaxy S7 rear housing set.
Undo the 12 long screws in the rear housing. These screws are in the same size, no worries to mix them up. Use a pair of tweezers to pick up the screws if they're still stuck in the holes.

Remove the Galaxy S7 wireless charging chip and antenna module, be careful not to damage this vulnerable part.

Peel off the yellow tape and then remove the Galaxy S7 loudspeaker assembly.


4. Pry up the connectors shown in below to release the Galaxy S7 motherboard.

The connetors include: 3 antenna cable connectors, volume button flex connector, power button flex connector, home button flex connector, front facing camera connector, rear facing camera connector, LCD assembly connector, battery flex connector and ear speaker flex connector.



5. Release the Galaxy S7 battery.

Heat up to soften the Galaxy S7 battery adhesive, wedge the metal spudger under the battery and pry it back and forth, you may also need a plastic playing card and a plastic spudger to help to remove the battery. The battery is glued to the front housing with strong adhesive in square, that's why the battery is stucking so well.

    I submerge my s7 edge into a pool when I was swimming for only 6 seconds and the power went off.. I thought its a water resistant. Do u know what happened to my phone? What should I do? Please I wanted to send my phone to a Samsung trusted company in Australia where I bought it from to fix… Will u recommend which one somewhere in Sydney and would u please give me their address?

      Water resistant is not the same as waterproof. It will resist water to a certain extent, i.e a splash of water or maybe having the occasional drink knocked over it but it wont tolerate a full submersion in water.

        Oh shut up, it will “tolerate” submersion asi it is ip68 certified which means submersion into 1,5m deep water for 30mins. The problem is he was swimming with it – moving the phone underwater.

      Hi, Martin, your idea sounds great, however, there are differences between S7 and S7 Edge battery in body size and the battery flex connectors, so i guess there maybe some difficulties in putting battery to each other’s phone body.

    Can i pay someone or a company to do this for me?
