Hi there.

Is this a good way to replace the frame around the camera? I dropped it and chipped it slightly and since the phone is less than 2 months old for me, it is kind of bothering me.

I guess my main concern is, once I do this, is it going to go back together as good as new? I'll probably only need to remove the back cover yeah?

Thanks in advance!

Every one of these I have seen has a lot of adhesive near the home button which makes the screen coming out much harder then any video or tutorial I have seen online showing.

anybody have measurements on the battery ceiling? Does this model have similar issues as the note 7 with no padding to account for battery expansion?
