The initial phone opening technique is not working, adhesive too stron

I am having trouble using the ifixit kit to successfully open the GS6. The adhesive holding the rear glass is not loosening up for me to be able to remove it using the provided suction cup. Any ideas?

Is this a good question?

Use a playing card.. Get the glass up enough you can get a playing card underneath and use it to break the bond between the glass and glue

As Daniel has suggested, I would use a Blow Dryer or a heat gun to heat the back. Heat it up just to the point of it being uncomfortably warm to the touch but not so hot that it burns you.

You need heat. Without heat you will not get it off.
