    Check out this S6 disassembly video, it will explain clearly what you need to do in order to open up your Galaxy S6 Flat.
  2. Can I do this mod on an edge device?
    Unfortunately, no. Because on edge devices the battery connector is on the opposite side.
  3. Is it hard to do?
    If you have patience the mod is pretty easy. The hardest part is removing the back glass and sticking it back on when you are done.
  4. What are the risks?
    The only risk you are taking, is breaking the back glass. Which if you go slow and have patience, is not going to break.

    The battery and tools are pretty cheap, you should be able to get everything for less than 25 USD. If you need a spare back glass, that’s also cheap and often comes with pre-installed adhesive.
  7. How can I calibrate my battery? To calibrate the battery, simply discharge it until the phone shuts down. Then charge it to 100% without turning it on. Repeat this process 1-2 times.
