Galaxy S4 Like New

Bob Lineberry -

Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S4 USB Board Replacement

45 minutes


My Problem

Regardless of charger or cable, charge rate was only 300 mA. New battery did not help.

My Fix

Even with the iFixit tools (very nice), the case got a little dinged. The glue holding the board was more tenacious than expected.

My Advice

Take your time. Use little force. Don't bend boards or cables more than necessary. Be careful snapping the antenna connectors back on (straight down on the metal cap).
