Follow this guide to learn how to replace the screen and the front plastic frame on your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. This guide will show you how to remove all the components from the frame, which includes the digitizer, OLED display, display frame, and home button.

Use this guide if you are replacing the display assembly and front plastic frame together. If your replacement part does not come with a plastic frame, follow this guide instead.

This guide involves removing the rear glass. Removing the rear glass destroys the adhesive holding it in place. Follow this guide to reinstall the rear glass.

  1. If your replacement part looks like the first image, follow the display assembly and frame replacement guide. If your replacement part looks like the second image, follow the display assembly replacement guide.
  2. Insert a paper clip or SIM eject tool into the hole in the SIM card slot on top of the phone. Do not insert the tool into the microphone hole or you could cause damage. Look for the outline of the SIM tray. Press to eject the SIM card tray.

    • Press to eject the SIM card tray.

    • Remove the SIM card tray from the phone.

  3. We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk on the bottom may end up stuck to the iOpener. Place the iOpener in the center of the microwave.

    • Place the iOpener in the center of the microwave.

    • For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely. If your iOpener gets stuck, it may overheat and burn.

  4. Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.
    • Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.

    • Throughout the repair procedure, as the iOpener cools, reheat it in the microwave for an additional thirty seconds at a time.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Overheating may cause the iOpener to burst.

    • Never touch the iOpener if it appears swollen.

    • If the iOpener is still too hot in the middle to touch, continue using it while waiting for it to cool down some more before reheating. A properly heated iOpener should stay warm for up to 10 minutes.

  5. Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center.
    • Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center.

    • The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful when handling it. Use an oven mitt if necessary.

  6. Opening your phone will compromise its waterproof seals. Have replacement adhesive ready before you proceed, or take care to avoid liquid exposure if you reassemble your phone without replacing the adhesive. If your glass is shattered, put packing tape over the entire panel to hold it together during the removal process.

    • If your glass is shattered, put packing tape over the entire panel to hold it together during the removal process.

    • Lay the heated iOpener over the rear panel for about two minutes to loosen the adhesive around the edge of the glass.

    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • Shift the iOpener to heat the remaining section of the panel for another two minutes.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  7. Once the rear glass is hot to the touch, apply a suction cup near the bottom edge  of the glass. Lift on the suction cup to create a small gap underneath the rear glass, and insert an opening pick into the gap. Optionally, once the pick is inserted, you can add a few drops of isopropyl alcohol into the gap to help weaken the adhesive in the following steps.

Would it be possible to point out which connectors are for the LCD/touch screen, as my screen is not broken but part of the my touch screen will not work and I would like to check the connector is applied properly. Also would it be possible to purchase that suction cup somewhere?

Nina Borseth - Responder

It does not seem as though steps #25, #26, and #27 are necessary for this specific project: Display Assembly Replacement. Otherwise an excellent guide!

You are right! The guide has been re-organized to leave those steps out now.

Arthur Shi -

Does anybody know if there is actually any difference between the CDMA and GSM screens? I got a galaxy s6 edge with a broken screen, and the back said verizon, but when I opened it up, the charging port flex cable said, SM-G925A, which is the AT&T version right? I have a working screen I took off of a working verizon phone, but it doesn’t work on the ATT phone. I’m not sure if its that the motherboard is damaged, or if the Verizon screen won’t work on the AT&T phone.
