On the eve of the marketing of Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 , iFixit offers us the complete teardown of the three smartphones, to show us all the details of the internal components, starting from the innovative ultrasonic fingerprint reader.
While for the first two models has been prepared a large photo gallery, the Plus version is the protagonist of a video, which you find at the end of the article, which shows how complex the operation, which requires special attention, suitable tools and a lot of knowledge of the matter, to avoid irreparable damage.
Even iFixit, as JerryRigEverything did a few days ago has focused on the fingerprint reader, firmly fixed to the screen. Bad news for those who damage it, as the complete replacement of the display will be necessary. In the same way, the break of the display will also require the replacement of the fingerprint reader.
Many components are modular and can be replaced independently but the charging port is now soldered to the main board. The battery replacement is possible, but still unnecessarily difficult. Also screen repairs require a lot of disassembly while battling tough adhesive.
