S6 Edge Rear Glass Removal FAQ

Is the heat pad required?

The back glass is held on by a strong adhesive. If you don’t use a heating pad before attempting to remove the glass, you will just shatter the glass (even further) and have a big mess that can potentially cut you. Be patient, give it a good 5 to 10 minutes to heat up and work its magic.

Why do you use guitar picks?

Guitar picks are a pretty ideal thickness to act as a wedge. Without the picks, the glass will reseat itself down into the adhesive and you are back where you started. Also, rock stars use guitar picks. Some people like playing cards instead of picks; your mileage may vary.

What’s the difference between plastic and metal spudgers?

They’re made of two different materials. Duh. Actually, the main difference is that metal is a conductor. Therefore, metal spudgers should not be used for internal smartphone or tablet repairs, where they could cause a short. Use metal spudgers for the exterior glass, where you may need the extra strength. Use plastic spudgers for internal components.

What can I do if I can’t do it?

If you have trouble performing S6 Edge rear glass removal, just take a breath. It isn’t going to render your phone useless. Brush the excess bits of broken glass and shame off the device and contact a professional repair company who performs smartphone repair.
