You will need to pry the screen up to remove it from the phone. Read the following notes carefully before proceeding.

Take note of the two seams on the edge of your phone:

Screen seam: This seam separates the screen from the rest of the phone. This is where you have to pry.

Frame seam: This is where the plastic frame meets the back cover. It is held in place by screws. Do not pry at this seam.

Before you begin, note the following areas on the screen:

Screen flex cable: Do not insert the opening pick deeper than instructed or you risk damaging this cable.

Adhesive perimeter: Prying beyond this narrow perimeter without angling the pick will damage the OLED panel.
