Right, so, this is supposed to be a teardown, and unfolding it doesn't count. Time to pick a point of entry and go for it. Arm iOpeners!

Experience tells us that Samsung likes to build their phones from the front, and stick the back cover on last—so we start there.

Once again a little heat from our iOpener softens the glue up nicely, and we slice off the first of the two outside covers. We're in.

Samsung's usual curved glass covers, like the one we recently pulled off the Note 10+, can be stressful to pry under, so the flat point of entry here is a welcome relief.
