2 strips of double sided tape on a phone with a non-removable battery is all you need. Don't know what Samsung is playing at, making their phones less futureproof.
Oh goodie! Now making it EVEN HARDER to fix your own phone.
Just make em disposable...they are mostly anyway. Manufacturers do NOT want you
to repair them. If they completely eliminate repair, they can charge even higher prices.
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2019Can't wait for these jokers to create soldered batteries. As well as their legions of fans to ... moreThere are already soldered batteries out there, Alcatel did it to a tablet (2x versions, one with soldered battery, one without sold in different regions)... i cant remeber which one though..
Its only a few wires, takes 1min (Only caution you need is not to shot wires)
Recently I replaced the battery on my LG G6. To glue the back cover I used rtv silicone gasket maker. Still holding pressure (when press the phone) and hopefully watertight.
Yujikon, 21 Dec 2019Does anyone know what this glue is made of?Currently devices sealed with tape are generally resealed with a glue called B-7000, which is somewhat water resistant and also softens under heat like the tape it replaces. It's also very cheap. There are many variants but UV is not needed.
Yujikon, 21 Dec 2019Does anyone know what this glue is made of?I think it is UV glue using UV light to apply
Nah, the reason are:
- faster to apply, which means faster to assemble and reduce mfg cost by a few cents per 100 units
- harder to repair, which means people will buy more often.
Profit it all that matters
Where are Greta Tunberg and all other clowns to protest planned obsolescence? Too busy travelling around and contributing to Planet and society's demise, i guess.
Isn't Weldbond ordinary PVA "white glue" that's melts in tropical climates and takes forever to cure? Maybe you can open the phone for servicing by soaking it warm water for a few minutes.
AnonD-901275, 21 Dec 2019Not good news for those of us who are repairing our gadgets ourselves :(If you're replacing parts then you can still replace it with the double-sided tape. Just remove the access glue
Samsung are tending into Apple
Another headache from Samsung
Make it easy to break and hard to repair
glue is for paper mache and not consumer electronics
The next step is cardboard and glue - much cheaper !
And after 2-3 months - buy a new one, again $1500 !
Does anyone know what this glue is made of?
I'm happy for this. It's worked for the note 10 it'll work for the S11.
