Today iFixit, a well-known foreign maintenance team, dismantled the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The good news is that if you have enough patience and courage, you can repair the S20 Ultra yourself at home. The bad news is that it’s not easy to unplug your phone, and you need to use a variety of tools to turn it on.
The iFixit team says that while the use of a hot air gun can soften the adhesive on the back, the adhesive is more viscous than previous versions, requiring an oversized suction cup to pull the back cover out. Fortunately, the rear cover can be removed without removing the cable.
After removing the rear panel, iFixit found that the phone’s camera had a protruding conical shape, indicating that the S20 Ultra’s camera was larger. Unlike other S20 models, Ultra is equipped with a large 108MP camera.
The entire disassembly process after opening the rear cover is relatively simple, requiring only a cross screwdriver to remove all the components. The entire layout inside is also very clear and modular, including Qualcomm 5G modems, Samsung Flash, Murata Bluetooth and WiFi modules, and much more.
In the end, the iFixit team gave the Galaxy S20 Ultra a 3-point serviceability score. With a total score of 10, a higher score represents an easier repair.
