    • We can see the motherboard now and the rear camera is connected by a connector on the back of motherboard. So we have to remove motherboard before removing rear camera.

    • Before removing motherboard, we have to remove LCD screen. You can see more details on Samsung Galaxy Note 4 LCD screen replacement.

    • If just removing the rear camera it is not necessary to remove the LCD from the assembly. simply unscrew the one screw located on the left side of the motherboard and disconnect flex cables with a plastic spudger, keeping in mind the two connections underneath the board where the LCD connects. You run less risk of damage to the display this way.

    You do not need to remove LCD\Digitizer assembly from the bezel to replace the rear camera. Doing so is dangerous not to mention adds unnecessary time to the repair.

What could you do if just the glass was broken on your camera lens but camera still worked?

sheets83 -

if you only have the glass broken you *MIGHT* be able to just replace the glass cover but there is a huge risk of glass and dust contamination ruining the camera anyways. I personally had this happen after replacing the glass cover and now have black splotches all over even after I tried my damnest to control for dust.

I have a 910C model. I would like to know if all models (A, C, F, U...) have the same camera inside?

Best regards

The chipset(s) would be different in each one, I would think.
