How to Take the Back off a Note 5: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you need to replace the back glass cover on your Samsung Galaxy Note 5, you’re in the right place. Follow these simple steps to remove the back cover without damaging it.

First, you need to heat up the back cover. You can use a hairdryer, heat gun, or put it on a hot plate. Once it’s heated, you can gently pry it up without breaking it.

Next, use a suction cup and a plastic prying tool to lift and pry the back cover. Once you see a small gap between the glass and the metal frame, wedge a thin prying tool in between. Use a cloth to protect your fingers from the heat.

Gently and slowly go around the sides of the phone with the prying tool to begin lifting it up. If you have two prying tools, use one for each side. Remove all the adhesive around the back cover. There will be a little bit of adhesive on the top part as well.

When you’re done, you can place the new glass back on or reuse the same one. The back cover should still have either the adhesive on the back glass cover or on the frame of the phone. Place it back on and apply pressure on the sides to seal it up correctly.

Replacing the back cover on a Note 5 is easy if you follow these steps. You don’t need any special tools, and it won’t take long. If you found this guide helpful, please give it a thumbs up!
