This Is Why You Shouldn't Try Fixing The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 On Your Own

Published

IFIXIT successfully tore down the Note 8 but not without a little difficulty. The Galaxy Note 8 is easier to repair than the Essential phone but that doesn’t actually mean the Note8 is very easy to get into – at all, which I must say is quite unfortunate.
This Is Why You Shouldn't Try Fixing The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 On Your Own 1

Any repair you may want to make requires you to remove the rear glass panel, which is quite a difficult task to accomplish because of how much adhesive is holding it in place. If you want to change your screen, you’ll need to remove both the display assembly and the rear panel – both are very fragile and secured with very strong adhesive.

The Note 8 nevertheless still has modular components that you can replace its bits and pieces independently – if you really manage not to break the glass while getting into the phone. You won’t have to get bothered about the type of screws on the note 8 because it comes with standard screws.

The battery can be easily replaced as well, but Samsung really made this “unnecessarily difficult” by using a tough adhesive and the glued-in rear panel. In the end, the Galaxy Note8 received a 4 out of 10 repairability score (10 being easiest to repair). But you’re better off giving your phone to a trained technician to fix it than trying repairs on your own.

Google has been working round the clock to release the next version of Android and now Android 10 (Android Q) beta is now available for Tecno Spark 3 Pro and about 20 other smartphones.

It’s rather interesting to see a Tecno Spark 3 Pro added to the list of devices that are available for Google’s Android Q beta program but I’m still skeptical if it’s going to work well for now, not just on the Tecno but some other devices on the list.

If you have been following up the Android Q features lately you’ll know that Android 10 comes with a couple of new features – A native screen recording feature and of course dark mode.
