As a tech blogger, watching drop tests and videos of phones being disassembled and put back together help me with my work. That being said, I find absolutely no reason for a private consumer to try this at home. Especially when it comes to $800+ devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S3.

But, if you want to replace a non-functioning component with your own hands or to take a look around the inside of your device, just for the thrills, the video below provides a perfect guide. The 20 minute video, by YouTube blogger LE55ONS, is a complete step-by-step guide on how to take apart a Galaxy S3, repair/replace non-functioning components as required, and put it all back together. Let’s take a look.

It is a very helpful guide and while he makes it look simple enough, I’m assuming he does this professionally as his YouTube¬†channel features over 50 videos of him taking apart and repairing various types of smartphones. Again, do this only if you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO, and, even if you need to replace anything, I would recommend doing so by dropping the device off at a Samsung service store.

    I pluged my phone up to a radio A while ago and I saw a spark come from the jack port when I unpluged it and when I opened my phone I found some smoke on the back of my phone battery cover. Is there a way to replace it? Samsung is telling me that it had water damage so they cant fix it I call bs on that cause it never got wet. But here are the symptoms no sound at all from the device. Blue tooth works well but not during phone calls. I can listen to music videos and hear the random notices and alerts but can not hear phone calls. I found some parts online but am unsure what i need can you help
