i was told by Samsung that there is a specific screen for each carrier, that an s7 edge screen from tmobile will not be 100% compatible with say a Verizon phone. The screen would work, but some buttons may not. Is this actually the case?

I then read somewhere that there is the glass/lcd and the frame, so essentially an s7 edge screen comes in 2 parts. They then said that the frame is carrier specific. If this is so and if the screens are carrier specific, could I get any screen and just take the frame from my broken screen and put it on the new screen that I buy?

ex - G935t is the model for a screen for Tmobile

G935v is the model for Verizon

They are only compatible with tmobile

Matt, you heard absolutely wrong. The screen is independant of the carrier. The only thing I can think of ifs the international phones may have a slightly different screen because of their different processor and motherboard connector, but's it. They're all 5.5". The glass and LCD are one and the same on the S7 edge. You cannot replace one without the other. By frame, they meant the phone's housing i.e. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile branding on the back. Honestly, it really doesn't matter what frame you use, as again, they're all the same. Someone at Samsung didn't know what the !&&* they were talking about.

why the &&^ do u remove the battery and the logical board in order to replace the screen, there's no need to do that..

just un-plug the battery cable and the screen cable which on the left-top of u and remove the screen right away.

there's no need to do a full tear down

Sorry but self-caused physical damage on any phone won't be covered through regular warranty, however, I've owned several Samsung phones and 2-3 of them had water damage and the simcard reader was destroyed due to hard pulling (my sim card was stuck xD). I sent it to my carrier in Denmark and they fixed it for free. Maybe they could not see if I've destroyed the simcard reader with hard pulling, same scenario with the water damaged S7. There are two options;

1) they fixed it for free because they could not see anything indicating self-caused physical damage = noobs xD

2) they are overly nice to customers and offer free repair in some cases

If it was an iPhone they would never fix it for free, dont know why.

Quick question...

When you replace the screen is there a reason why you might also need to replace the home button and the earpiece?

I only say this as I have just had my broken screen replaced by an apparently reputed insurance repairer and they have replaced both of these with items which now do not match the colour of the handset (they are copper coloured on a black phone).

I should say that there were no issues with either the home button or the earpiece before I sent the phone to be repaired so as far as I am concerned did not need replacing.

From the videos I have seen online both items appear completely independent of the screen.

Can the glass only be swapped?

It can, but it'll most likely break. Better of buying the complete unit. Granted it's expensive, but the phone is still worth at least £400.

I never change the glass because you can end up with bubbles, faulty/sloppy touch and the rest. Not to mention the glass will be third party and weaker as Samsung don't sell it separately.

What glue do you need to stick the new lcd screen to the phone and then the glass back.

Is there a specific pre made glue strip you can get.

Black Tesa tape, available from iFixit store. Strongest muthaf****ing adhesive for phone and tablet repairs available. I use it on all iPad and Samsung Repairs. Never lifts or comes apart like cheaper tape. Don't use glue. Just don't.

I'm unsure if you still read the comments, but can you post a video on or tell how to replace the screen? My screen is shattered from a drop, but works fine. Please explain...
