How do I remove these screws?

Trying to perform a screen replacement. The small side screws with washers are extremely hard to remove! I've gotten 4 out of 6 of them. My hand is killing me. Why are they so tight? Is there some trick to get them out?

Is this a good question?

No theres no trick. The best way would be to put your phone to its side and apply firm pressure downward on the screw while unscrewing them.

If there is any trick, itd be to just LOOSEN all 6 of the screws. I emphasize loosen because you can just unscrew them halfway and pull out the lcd assembly as a whole.

Adrian, good idea! Never thought of that! That would save about me about 10 minutes per screen change! Haha thanks
