Is it possible to replace just the lens without taking off the back cover? Like can I just use a suction tool to pull off the broken lens and put in the new one?

Alex Sangue - Reply

Yes, that is possible!

Robin -

I am wondering the same thing. I believe it would work. Don't see the need in pulling the back cover to replace a piece of exposed glass.

Yes. It can be done. I did it using a hair dryer to warm the lens and peel if off gently, starting in one corner. If it seems reluctant to come off you may need to heat it a little more. Be careful not to damage to outer metal ring (as I did) and then replace the glass lens as described.

Does anyone know if a similar procedure can be done to replace the camera glass in the S6 Active? Obviously it would be harder to remove the back entirely but steps 6 though 8 look similar so would it be possible on the S6 Active or would it require a different technique to maintain its waterproofing?

Can you make a guide on how to replace the flash lens/bezel? I know this probably isn't a common thing but mine is cracked and I'd like to replace it

Hi,Im using a s6 edge plus.My rear camera lens cover broke.Can we fix it getting an original one?Because out of an analysis i understood that original lens cover is not available & we can only get a copy of it.If we fix the copy cover the picture quality will be effected badly is what i heard.So is there any chance to get an original rear camera lens cover?If so how much would it cost me?

Milutin Zonjic -

Hi,

Any luck on this issue?

I got a fake camera lens and the picture quality is very bad, indeed.

I also noticed that on the back of the glass is written a "code". For example, the fake one has "V1". I can't remember what was the code for the original one.
