You Can Change the Galaxy S6 Battery After All

One of the biggest things that we noted during our hands-on preview of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge earlier this month was the fact that the new flagship smartphones from Samsung do not have a user-replaceable battery like all the generations that preceded them. As it turns out, that’s not completely true. The Galaxy S6 battery is accessible. Sort of.

Yes, the new smartphone does not have a removable plastic back. However, as the keensters at iFixit discovered, it is still possible to remove and replace the Galaxy S6 battery. It just takes a heck of a lot more work. This is not a task for the feint of heart, because you will be whipping out a hair dryer, a spudger tool and a micro Philips head screwdriver to get at the tiddly bits.

The embedded video below is about 17 minutes in length and it goes in detail about how you can rip that phone apart to get at the Galaxy S6 battery. It’ll also tell you how to remove and replace all sorts of other parts, should you feel so compelled. Expect to see our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S6, looking into battery life and all, to be published soon.
