Video Overview

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Samsung Galaxy S21, use our service manual.

    Final Thoughts
    • The fasteners, all identical Phillips screws, only require one driver and can't be mixed up, simplifying repair.
    • Many components are modular and independently replaceable, but the missing headphone jack means double duty and wear for the USB-C port.
    • The two most common repairs, screen and battery, are still unnecessarily sticky and complicated
    Repairability Score
    Repairability 4 out of 10
    (10 is easiest to repair)


S21 5g just quit working. Needed a new screen but used Dex on the TV. Just won't power up now. What should I change out? It's beat up but I don't see any noticable damage.???

No step by step write-up, really? A video guide is so much less accessible than an article. Pretty disappointing.
