How to Disassemble LG G Flex 2!

The other day, my micro-SIM card (which is actually a nano-SIM with a micro-SIM adapter) got stuck on my G Flex 2. ┬áRather than forcing the issue, I decided to disassemble my LG G Flex 2, perhaps learn about the phone’s internal’s along the way.

Well, the process is actually very easy to do, and the G Flex 2 is certainly one of the easiest phones to disassemble and repair.  That is rather surprising as I initially thought curved screens may be harder than non-curved phones.

Whether you need to replace the screen, camera, or any other broken parts, LG G Flex 2 is the easiest smartphone to disassemble period.

Here’s how to do it, step-by-step:

First, you will need a #00 screw driver, you can get this on Amazon or your local hardware store.

Second, we are going to unscrew all of the visible screws on the back of the phone.

Make sure ALL of the screws are unscrewed.

Third, start at the bottom of the phone and you should be able to pull out the bottom slightly, making a gap.

Use a plastic tool to slide it across the gap all the way around the phone.

The bottom cover should pull out first. This bottom cover contains your phone speakers. If your phone speakers ever break, simply replace this part.

The main back cover should eventually pull off easily and Boomshakalaka!

And supposedly LG told us the battery is curved. Well, I can prove you here that it’s not curved and
I have no idea why they didn’t use removable battery.

    If I buy a spare battery in case of emergency do you think it would be easy to replace?
