Everyone one is talking about the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with a brand new body design and premium materials like glass and aluminum. For the majority of the users, having a sturdy phone like the Samsung Galaxy S6 is the most important thing and aren’t interested in other details.
This isn’t the case with power users. They care more about the removable battery, back cover and easier-to repair-phone, things that Samsung decided to remove from the Galaxy S6. The biggest annoyance that users are complaining about is the lack of a removable back cover and battery.
Having a removable battery means that you can buy extra batteries and replace them on the go, without having to wait for the phone to charge. This has become an impossible task on the Galaxy S6, not only because the back cover is not easily removable, but because there are a few more obstacles you have to pass to reach the battery.
A few days ago we talked about how Samsung made it easy to remove the back cover, thanks to the provided user manual. However, looks like this isn’t really the case, as proved by a full Samsung Galaxy S6 teardown video.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is one of the top-of-the-line devices with amazing specifications. It has a QHD 5.1″ Super AMOLED display, octa-core Exynos processor which runs faster and cooler than the Snapdragon 810 chipset, 16 MP main and 5 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB RAM and a 2550 mAh battery.
By now, most of you know what the specs of the Galaxy S6 are. But do you know how it actually looks inside? Folks over at “ETrade Supply” had made a full teardown video of the Samsung Galaxy S6, turning it into pieces. By watching the video, you will immediately realize that removing the back cover or the front display isn’t an easy job. You need a heat gun to melt the adhesive, and then carefully pull the back cover up.
Below, there is a small frame hold in place with screws. After you remove the frame, you need to remove the motherboard to finally be able to reach the battery. If getting the back cover removed was tough, replacing the battery is impossible. Watch the full Samsung Galaxy S6 teardown video above.
