IFixit has finally made it to Samsung‘s new flagship, the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Unfortunately, there is nothing to please users; in the maintainability test, the smartphone earned only 3 points out of 10. And one of the reasons for this is just the display.
However, in order to repair the Galaxy S21 Ultra, you first need to open it. There is no glass on the back, and you can not be afraid to damage it, but at the same time,
the cover and the protruding plastic panel of the camera unit are so well sprinkled with glue that you will have to deal with them.
The display cable is not modular, making it difficult to replace the screen. This is in addition to the fact that it is thoroughly glued in. Removing the battery is not easy – and all for the same reason:
because of the glue. In the end, to get to the components that most often require replacement (the screen and the battery).
However, there are also pluses. For example, all screws are standardized in size and length, making it easier to assemble a refurbished smartphone. Fans of custom design can replace the panel of the camera unit or paint it in a custom color.
