    Has been specified in step 4, the L-shaped pink strip must be warm and carefully detached

    • !!!!CAUTION!!!! The display is also pasted in the middle with strong double-sided, be very careful if the display is not broken and you have to replace it with a new one.

essayer d'expliquer avec des mots corrects, parce que le traducteur ne comprend pas ce que vous dites

Not sure, but it sounds like he's looking for a display to fit a Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini (sm- g800f) that may or may not be a fake? There are a lot of shorthand and typos in there though...

Je suis désolé, je ne comprends pas

There are typos, I personally buy spare parts on eBay

I have a broken glasfront and would like to repair it,

I have found spare parts on amazon but from the tutorials I have the feeling I cant change the glas front alone or can I?

My display has no damage whatsoever.

Just wanted to make sure its possible before buying the spare part

my advice is to buy all the assembled display because being able to separate the broken glass from the display is very complicated and having run machined on purpose mil outcome is not guaranteed

Does a Samsung Galaxy S5 LCD + Digitizer work as a replacement for the S5 Neo? Everything looks the same, but I'm trying to connect the ribbon cable and it's not snapping in easily. I fear forcing it could damage it. Any idea?

Stacy Moffat - Reply

S5 and S5 Neo have different plug size. You cannot swap between.

Where can I buy new display in 2018? I can spent max 75$.

edit: I’m searching for S5 Neo obviously. Sending parts from Europe would be great.

Hi! Good guide very usefull, only confusing thing i found is the way the pictures are displayed at step 4. The way the phone opens from the top on the first one and then from the bottom on the second lead me to think it was from the top both times. Beside that very helpfull.

Philippe Raymond - Reply

hello, I tried to open it a bit 'from all sides, starting from the top and then laterally and below, because of the parts glued in the center I did not understand how to move, finally opening the outline you can lift it from below to not damage the cables of display. Now that you know how it's done, you can move as you see fit to remove the display without breaking down

Smilzo -

Is it possible to remove a perfectly good screen off of an already functional phone without damaging the ribbons/LCD and glass to use on another Galaxy 5 neo? Both being the exact same models of phones, of coarse!

certainly paying close attention
