Samsung Galaxy S7 Scores Low on Repairability

Samsung Galaxy S7 is one particular gadget that wasn’t ashamed to wow us when it was released. After months of keeping us waiting, the company finally decided to release the device some days to the Mobile World Congress, and just as expected, the Mobile World Congress gave us the chance to go real deep into the device itself.

It sports some cool specs, and for someone who wants a device that runs all their documents and files, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is the best choice as its perfect for that. It sports a fingerprint scanner that’s perfect for those who have security as a preference; it comes with some super cool specs that help enhance the usability of the gadget. Well, the specs led many of us to get the device, with the hope of enjoying every bit of it.

Many have been using the device, but since it’s a device, it’s bound to get spoilt. We are getting news from our readers that the device is a torn in the flesh when it gets spoilt because of the big issues self-repairers are facing.

The innards of the Samsung Galaxy S7 have not been stitched together in a way that it will not support the self-repair custom. Many of the components can’t be changed easily, but the company seems to have made them more complicated, and being careless could result in a mistake and ultimate damage of the components.

The microSD card port and the battery terminal have all been put together in a way that makes its pretty hard for a person to gain access to them. Trying to gain access to or repair any of these components can result in damage to other components. If you try to access to the microSD, you will need to remove the screen, and if you are not careful, you could damage the display. If you want to replace the charging port, you will need to do some training on micro-soldering; because you will either damage the soft button LEDs or the screen. Trying to replace the front glass and the touchpad without damaging the screen is not always possible.

Just as many other Smartphone makers always do on their devices, an extensive amount of adhesive has been used to hold down different components inside the Smartphone, and the adhesive that was also used to hold the glass is very strong that being careless could result in breaking of the glass.


The charging port and the daughterboard are virtually irreplaceable because the cables have been sandwiched around the back frame of the display, and trying to release the cables mean you plan to remove the OLED screen also, and that action could cost your pocket a little setback.

Some of the modular components are held down by some tight spring contacts, so attempting to free them may mean you will have to beat the glue and the glass first. The headphone jack was also clothed with a rubber seal, and that seems to be Samsungs additional defense against the penetration of water.

Even though the device has been virtually irrepairable by novices, we still assume that this is Samsung’s way of telling us that only an authorized personnel is authorized to repair its devices, and not just any authorized personnel—it should be Samsung’s own authorized personnel. is 100% independently owned and welcomes new article contributions for our growing community.
