I took my back off to check it out and it was easy. I used a green plastic pry tool for phones. I bet a card would work too. The charging coil didnt stick to the back. there was glue on it but it stayed glued to the phone. I dropped my phone and dented the corner of the center case so I want to replace both the back and center section. Wish the video went into that. I see there is tape that they sell for the screen. Do i need to replace that? its cheap. $7.99 for 10 of them. anything i need to watch out for taking it apart further than the video?
With regard to breaking the seals as you mentioned, removing the tape that holds the back to the wireless charging coil, and the wireless charging coil to the battery is one that is easily resolved by simply replacing the tape. I don't believe that double sided tape plays any role in preventing dust or water infiltration.I'm thinking breaking that seal is going to leave less than desirable results down the road in regards to dust & moisture. Even with replacing it with double sided tape of some sort.
this is the middle case. Motorola Droid Turbo XT1254 Front Housing Frame this is the frame in between the circuit board and the screen and you can see it from the out side of the phone. its aluminum. my screen and glass are fine. I got the tape on ebay Ill just sell off the extra 9 on here for $1 shipped. i think ill keep a extra one so 8.
Well, in some cases it is actually cheaper to get the phone repaired or replaced under an extended warranty or supplemental protection plan (even with a high deductible), than it is to repair yourself.so it would be cheaper to smash it and get a replacement lol
