Slide your opening pick along the bottom edge of the phone to separate the last of the adhesive holding the screen in place.

As shown in step one, the gap between the display and the edge of the screen is larger here than on the sides.

If you plan to reuse your screen, take special care in this step to either keep your pick deep in the phone under the OLED display (as shown in this step's photos), or only insert it 5 mm into the device to avoid coming into contact with the display under the glass.

Don't try to remove the screen yet! It is still connected to the phone by a display cable.
