Please I need some advises for laser engraving

Hello,

My name is Emile and I have a Galaxy s6 edge " I would like to engrave the back on the phone (assuming it is made of glass) using a laser marking system. My questions are :

1) Is it safe to engrave the back of that phone ?

2)Will the heat produced by the laser while engraving, have a negative impact on the phone? ( I mean, will it stop working ?)

Thank you for taking the time to read and answer my question.

[UPDATE 15/11/16]: I engraved the phone and everything was fine. they were not any issue with the phone.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Its glass with a protective layer. I don't see why it wouldn't be safe to engrave.

Also, I would not remove the back beforehand as that will ruin the waterproofing. I would not recommend doing this though, as it will mean much lower trade in values and could mean that you couldn't do some carrier buyback offers.

Thank you for the answer ,

Yes i thought about that (the lower trade in values) and also, I'm not Eligible for buyback offers (Phone bought somewhere in Africa "cameroon").

I wasn't planing on removing the back.

I think i will do that and i'll let you know the result . thanks again

I am pretty heavily involved in buybacks/used devices. An engraving lowers the value down even more than a broken screen. My advice? Get a cool bamboo or clear case and get that engraved.

Yeah , you are certainly Right . But I am not attending to re-sell it one day so, i think it is fine.

PS: thanks for your advices :)

Hi!

I'm no expert on laser engraving or S6 edges but I would suggest taking off the back panel of the phone before proceeding to engrave it. This way, the phone's internals will stay safe and working. And if you do do something wrong, you can simply buy a new back panel rather than a whole new phone.

I wasn't planing to remove the back panel (because it is glued on the back) so i just wanted to do it like that .

Anyway i will do it and i'll update that post with the result .
