    • Proper way of replacing glass only in Galaxy S7 smartphone. To complete the repair follow each step presented in the recording.

    Although technically accurate in the replacement, this video requires expensive equipment not owned or readily available to most individuals. In short, I cannot recommend this video to anyone “unless” I know they have laboratory level equipment.

Completely useless video.

Technically the ‘correct’ way to replace the glass. However, not possible without the equipment shown in the video. Regular DIY individuals don’t have this equipment. Video should be flagged or at least given a category of equipment requirements. Basically not useful.

is there any way to replace glass at home, without professional equipment?

In this method there will be difficult to succeed. You need to find out how to do it with LOCA method. Best luck Irek!

No voiceover, no subtitles, no details whatsoever. Completely pointless.

Like others, I have found the lack of equipment details to render this not terribly useful. Exactly what tools/equipment were used during every stage? What other supplies such as adhesives or adhesive removers were used? Etc.
