This machined metal hinge looks sturdier compared to the last generation's, and it definitely has the adhesive to match.

After giving the case almost more heat than it can handle, we still need vise grips to pull this thing out.

We go for the battery next, but the battery's adhesive has other ideas. Against our better judgement, we crank the heat to eleven, watch for swelling, and cross our fingers that the battery doesn't go Galaxy Note 7 on us.

Despite the effort, one spudger still can't lever this battery out. Fortunately, we found some more.
