Introduction

The rear panel of the phone is responsible for keeping all of the device's hardware safe and secure. It is secured by eight 8.3 mm Torx head screws, and is accessible by first removing the back cover and battery. If the rear panel is damaged, it should be removed and replaced as a damaged panel can lead to damage of other internal hardware.
