Is the Samsung Galaxy S9 + easy to repair? Quite what iFixit service rated. Interestingly, the battery is the same cell that we know from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. May it only perform better.
Reality can be painful. You buy a smartphone for well over 3 thousand PLN. Sometimes it's just that you followed his fate from the first leak to the official premiere. Sharpening your teeth you ordered it in advance, additionally sacrificing your previous phone to cushion the cost. You unpack the box – beauty. Unfortunately, the package with the protective case has not yet arrived. Undeterred by this fact, you pack it in your pocket and start walking. Suddenly, the phone rings, you try to pick it up quickly and … boom. Contact with the substrate results in a beautiful, though not very desirable, tangle of cracks on one of the glass panes. No, not again.
Glass smartphones are a bane of users. And a fairy tale for the site
I know that the story I am quoting is extreme. But the fact is that smartphones are falling. Sometimes we are responsible for this and sometimes it is the role of third parties. The pain, however, remains the same. And glass phones like to beat like crazy. While these aluminum have twice the chance (purely theoretically, with a huge neglect of the laws of physics) to survive, so two panes of glass plus the floor is almost certainly a visit to the site. Which is quite happy about it.
How to easily fix Samsung Galaxy S9 +?
For sure you know what iFixit service does. They are ruthlessly undressing smartphones, laptops and a whole lot of other electronics to tell us how difficult it is to repair the equipment. And I have an impression (bordering on certainty) that the assessment of this facility is getting lower every year. Ask for a conspiracy theory. To think about removing the back panel at all, it should be heated. Without specialized equipment, it would look like an open-heart surgery using an impact drill. However, if we already have such a device, it is not complicated. The first small plus.It is not easy to replace the fingerprint scanner for this, which was glued with "due diligence". To remove the part responsible for wireless charging, you have to unscrew a few screws – writing a few, I mean 16. A lot of work. Theoretically, you can even change the battery yourself here, as soon as you manage to win the fight with the glue. Here is a curiosity – it 's the same link as in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 . I hope it is better secured – after the second flap, Samsung could not collect itself anymore.
Is it possible to fix the Samsung Galaxy S9 + alone?
Well – it depends on how wide you have the workshop, whether you have the right tools and skills. It must be admitted, however, that if iFixit evaluates a device of four on a 10-point scale , it is not so bad. After the warranty period, almost every service should handle it. This is very good news for those who, having bought a smartphone, tend to have it for more than two years. It looks like Samsung has done quite well – just like the Galaxy S8. It's good that although here we are not dealing with "progress". Source: iFixit
