Introduction

The camera is a component that many consider a necessity for modern phones. This guide will show you how to properly remove the camera lens without damaging the camera lens or any other vital components of the phone.

If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond.
  • If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond.

  • Apply a suction cup as close to the SIM slot edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case.
  • Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case.

  • This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener, heat gun, or hair dryer.

  • In the following steps, extra caution is required in certain areas to avoid damage to the phone:

    • Do not insert the pick more than 0.5 inches into the bottom edge of the phone. If the pick contacts the folded portion of the OLED panel it can damage the display.

    • Only make very shallow cuts in the upper left corner, prying deeply can damage the front-facing camera.

  • In the following steps, use the flat of the opening pick, rather than a corner, to cut here. This will help prevent inserting the pick too deeply.

  • Slide the opening pick up the right side of the phone to separate the display adhesive.

  • Reinsert the pick at the top edge of the phone and gently pry up the display.

    • If the display doesn't readily lift, do some extra prying to separate the last of the adhesive. The adhesive near the upper speaker is thicker than other places.

  • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as a fragile ribbon cable still connects it to the phone's motherboard.

  • Carefully lay the display down on top of the rear case as shown, making sure not to crease or tear the display ribbon cable.

  • Remove the two 4.0 mm T5 Torx screws securing the display cable bracket.

  • Use the point of a spudger to lift the display cable connector up and out of its socket on the motherboard.

  • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

  • If any part of your screen doesn't respond to touch after your repair re-seat this connector, making sure it clicks fully into place and that there's no dust or other obstruction in the socket.

  • Before installing a new display, it's very important to remove all traces of the old adhesive from the frame, while taking special care to remove any small glass fragments.

  • After removing all traces of glue and glass from the frame, clean the adhesion areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (at least 90%), then apply the new adhesive.

  • The best way to secure the new screen is with a sheet of custom-cut double-sided tape, but high-adhesion double-sided tape, like Tesa 61395, will work too. Apply the tape to the edges of the frame where the old adhesive was, align the screen, and press it into place.
