Currently, there are no iFixit repair guides for this device. However, there are other guides that show how to replace components like the screen, and there are teardown guides that would help in figuring out how to get to specific components. I'll link the teardown here for you to view

Thanks! How do you find parts then?

Without parts I'll hesitate to buy second hand phones.

@michael_fixit oldturkey03 has a good answer for that. As he said that you should have the SM-G780F, and the parts were linked in his answer. As for finding the parts, there are a few different websites that you can find that can supply parts. Its just a matter of looking around and finding a site that can supply what you need.

@michael_fixit all of this will depend on what you are trying to repair. Even a guide on here will not always get you the proper parts etc. Your S20FE should be a Samsung SM-G780F. Here is the parts list for that one Samsung G780F Parts Just remember that Samsung using a secondary numbering system. Sometimes it's cumbersome to search by that and again it will depend on what you are looking for.

There is actually one iFixit guide for S20 FE that I found for display assembly replacement. It seems to be located in the wrong place and not under the regular S20 FE device page, so it is difficult to find. Not sure if it's possible to move this guide so that more people would be able to find it.

Hope this helps.

I'm wondering if that is something we would need to talk to a mod about. I'm not sure if a user can just move guides for devices around, or if we can just merge the two so that the guide can be seen.

Apparently I have enough reputation to repatriate the guide to the S20 FE device page rather than the S20 FE 5G where it was previously.
