what happened Samsung? Why suddenly screw with repairers?

Samsung has gone from the most repairable telephones to one of the worst.

I'd also like to note @ Step 8. Be VERY careful of the menu respectively the return key flexes located at the bottom of the screen while seperating the LCD from the chassi. They tend to "follow with" the sceren and break.

If they do break you'll have to replace the entire charging contact in order to restore them to full function.
