  1. It's good to have a galaxy to play with, 'cause we're gonna need a lotta space for all this hardware:
    • It's good to have a galaxy to play with, 'cause we're gonna need a lotta space for all this hardware:

    • 5.1” Super AMOLED display (1920 x 1080, 432 ppi)

    • 16 MP rear-facing camera with 4K video at 30 fps; 2 MP front-facing camera with 1080p video and wide-angle lens

    • Sensors for fingerprint, heart rate, gestures

    • 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM

    • 16/32 GB internal memory, plus microSD up to 128 GB

    • LTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 BLE, Micro-USB 3.0, 802.11/ac MIMO Wi-Fi

  2. Our initial sensor sweep reveals no life signs—just lots of life-sensing equipment. From fingerprint scans to interpretive gestures, this phone shows signs of high-level interaction with an advanced civilization. Also, dimples. Visible beneath the 16 megapixel rear camera: a heart rate monitor. Useful when you need to monitor your heart rate from your smartphone. So basically all the time.

  3. Port ho! This silver bay is a Micro-B USB 3.0. And it's open. Down to the battery at least. Tears of joy fall silently around the teardown table. Peeling the back off this phone is easier than peeling a banana; the only tool required is an opposable thumb.
    • Port ho! This silver bay is a Micro-B USB 3.0.

    • And it's open. Down to the battery at least. Tears of joy fall silently around the teardown table.

    • Peeling the back off this phone is easier than peeling a banana; the only tool required is an opposable thumb.

    • Despite negative reviews of the case design, the ease of removal is a big plus for us.

    • What's that, no battery?

    • Samsung seems to be promoting the DIY lifestyle. Not only is this battery replaceable, it needs to be user installed. That deserves an internet high-five.

  4. No need to hitchhike to the edge of this galaxy to find the back case; it's free and clear.
    • No need to hitchhike to the edge of this galaxy to find the back case; it's free and clear.

    • We're guessing that this strange shape in the case is not a remnant of space creatures, but a rubber gasket. Samsung chose the minimalist's approach to water and dust resistance over more problematic methods.

  5. We briefly glance at the warnings as we pull the battery out of its fancy packaging. Questionable batteries will apparently explode when installed. This is a 3.85 V, 10.78 Wh battery. Samsung touted a better battery-saving mode, but failed to specify the life of this guy in its advertising—listing the battery spec as 2800 mAh.

    • This is a slight upgrade from the S4's 3.8 V and 2600 mAh (9.88 Wh) battery. Advertised at 7 hours of talk time, and up to 12.5 days of standby.

    • We install the new battery. Then, we take it back out. This teardown has places to be and they're under that battery pack.

    • For those keeping track at home, that took a grand total of 10 seconds. Beat that, HTC.

  6. Samsung has stacked the deck in our favor—the deck of microSD + SIM cards, that is. "Galaxy S5" may be catchier, but for those who prefer a more formal designation, SM-G900A is the model number you seek. What's behind door number R1?

    Is this to take the screen off

    • Suddenly, things are looking grim. The S5's forefather, the S4, took to the teardown table like a protocol droid to an oil bath.

    • This time though, it seems the entire display assembly stands in the way of any further tinkering.

    • With no other recourse, we call in our fixer muscle, iOpener and Opening Pick—perhaps better known by their street names, Heat and Force.

    • This is looking dire. What happened, Samsung? I thought we were friends.

    • Have you been hanging out with the Kindle Fire HDX?

  7. Time for the final pry op— ...aw, nuts. CABLE. Cable booby traps are like finding a pit of snakes between you and the treasure you are after. To make matters worse, Harrison Ford is nowhere to be found.
    • Time for the final pry op—

    • ...aw, nuts. CABLE.

    • Cable booby traps are like finding a pit of snakes between you and the treasure you are after. To make matters worse, Harrison Ford is nowhere to be found.

    • After spudging past the cable, we begin to free the display assembly. Unfortunately, Samsung seems to think that the only way to get into this phone should be glass-first.

  8. With the display thusly removed, we just have to convince it to part with its home button. We let our plastic opening tool do the talking. Say goodbye to the sticky adhesive tape holding the screen down. Reinstalling your display will most likely require a fresh set of adhesive. This little display assembly cable has a lot of bits to ferry. It's helped out by a Synaptics S5100A touchscreen controller.

    • This is a fairly radical change in design for the S-series. We're used to seeing internal components riding on the back of a large display assembly. The S5 turns this on its head and sandwiches the components between the display and the battery, in their own difficult-to-access compartment.

  9. Oh Samsung, we were hoping we might be going about this all wrong. But alas, here are the screws we needed—on the other side of the phone. Sigh. We've reached a point of debate on Galaxy nomenclature. The consensus says we're removing the midframe from the um, midframe. Confused? Yeah. We were, too.

    • Confused? Yeah. We were, too.

    • Here's the deal: after peeling off the rear case, you encounter a midframe. And between that (first) midframe and the display assembly, there's this second midframe. So there you have it: double the midframe.

    Note: There are 10 black screws in the midframe and there are 2 silver screws in the back of the device that keeps the midframe together. Make sure to remove all of them before prying it apart.

    This is a teardown, and shouldn't be followed as instructions, check our step-by-step S5 repair guides for details like number and size of screws!

  10. So, to recap: On the left we've got the interior midframe, with the motherboard and daughterboard
    • So, to recap:

    • On the left we've got the interior midframe, with the motherboard and daughterboard

    • On the right we've got the exterior midframe, with a plethora of spring-contacted components

    • We're already on a first-name basis with the other bits in here: headphone jack, speaker, buttons, etc.

    • Identity crisis averted. Repairability crisis, TBD...

    • Also now visible, just beneath the massive rear-facing camera, Samsung's all-new heart rate monitor, powered by the Samsung SM-G900S biosensor.

  11. Remember door number one's mystery connector? Surprise—it was the home button cable! This discovery is a bonus to the S5's repairability (and a classic lesson in the need for repair manuals)—disconnecting the home button cable from the start would have made the display removal much easier, and will certainly aid in reassembly. Present and accounted for is the expected fingerprint scanner tech. The control chip is labeled 1200P E43F2.

    • Some say getting this print sensor to actually work requires a bit of persistence.

  12. Near the center of the Galaxy we find a black hole the motherboard. With the hard work done, we pop it out and start scouring for evidence of intelligence. Our first sign comes via the camera.

    • Anxious for a staring contest, we use our trusty plastic opening tool to pry it out for a better look.

  13. On the left, we have Samsung's 16MP 1/2.6” rear-facing camera. Touting new, faster auto-focus, this camera should enable users to finally catch a real UFO with photographic evidence.

  16. With the motherboard out of the way, we find ourselves short of parts. All we have left is a lonely little daughter board. Home to the charging port, a closer examination of this daughter board reveals cables for the bottom buttons, as well as a smattering of ICs:

  17. Samsung Galaxy S5 Repairability Score: 5 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair). The battery is incredibly easy to remove and replace.
    • Samsung Galaxy S5 Repairability Score: 5 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).

    • The battery is incredibly easy to remove and replace.

    • The display is now one of the first components out, making replacements a little faster. However, it is held in with a significant amount of adhesive and requires very careful and persistent prying and a considerable amount of heat to remove without cracking the glass or cutting cables.

    • Once you get the device open, several components are modular and fairly easy to replace, such as the cameras, headphone jack, vibrator motor, and speakers.

    • Replacing anything other than the battery requires first removing the display, risking extra damage on the way to a repair.

    I have to say, 5 out of 10 is far too forgiving a score. I would give it a 3. screen-replacement is a definite red mark. i think i could do 20 s4 screens in the time it takes to do one s5. Those used to previous sasmung galaxy repair can easily find themselves breaking the home button cable if they don't have forewarning. placeing screws behind the display seems very deliberate and cynical on the part of the design team.

    this also means that you cannot purchase a new screen with the frame included. you must use the phone's existing frame and align it EXACTLY right. (pay extra to get pre-cut industrial glue). the first s5 i did, the new glass wouldn't align with the steel mic mesh. i had to spend over an hour grinding down the mesh!

    i cant beleive samsung would do this to me :(

what is the 802.11ac chip?

Ehsan Nourbakhsh - Yanıt

it's the wi-fi chip. 802.11 is a norm at IEEE ;)

Thomas -

was the lcd glued to the frame? i mean that reddish foil, did it come

off easily without heating it up? thanks

elvirs - Yanıt

LCD and touchscreen is fused together. Which reddish foil are you referring to?

adnan amru -

I think he means the copper-coloured backside of the display assembly. And I have the same question, was the backside of the display assembly glued to the midframe, or was it just the sides that were glued to the frame?

Audun -

no it is not. it is a kind of stray capacitance shield(made of copper i guess). so not glued to the main frame. you need to heat the edges. and be careful with the two buttons,,

esref celik celik -

How come iphone 5s scored higher than Galaxy S5? At least S5 is easier to replace battery without any difficulties.

Thomas - Yanıt

Because for s5, any PROPER repair will involve opening up the display module, which destroys the waterproof LCD adhesive. Special reassembly and functional test procedures are needed to restore the phone to its original performance. On an iPhone 5s no such problem is present.

Tom Chai -

@Thomas- For the iPhone 5s, you have to disconnect the home button (and fingerprint scanner) from the front display assembly as you open it, but opening it is trivial. The only worry is ensuring you don't snag the home button cable connected to the main board. This isn't super hard but requires some dexterity that makes a DIY repair much harder.

For the S5, it appears you have to heat the front of the display (at least the edges) and gently and rather expertly apply force to lift up the screen assembly. Not only do you have to do that to get the screen out for a screen replacement, you have to do that for ANY internal repair. There is a very high risk of breaking the screen doing this. Given that this is by far the most expensive component, that's a substantial risk if all you want to do is replace the camera/speaker/etc.

My guess is that Samsung decided on this approach to keep it water proof/resistant, but it greatly complicates any repair, ones that would be trivial on other Galaxy devices.

blank - Yanıt

@thomas adhesive like this is an automatic lowering and although it has a replaceable battery, that won't help if anything else breaks.

Ashley Ryan - Yanıt

How is access to the plastic 'string' piece that connects the USB/charger port cover to the frame? I'm asking as I can see this piece becoming a common break in the coming months. Hopefully it doesn't involve a disassembly of the phone to change the string/charge port cover.

Jon - Yanıt

The charge port cover is held on by one screw and a small plastic cover piece. It is trivial to replace broken covers so this will probably be a really cheap, easily sourced replacement part. I may pick up a 10-pack for my own S5. Feel like I will need that many.

PMDR -

thank you for help us

mart305 - Yanıt

I'm having a problem hearing sound when I'm on the road. It's as if it disconnects from wife or something. Any ideas?

Karina Golabek - Yanıt

Love the teardown! iFixit Rocks!!!!

Armen Orbelyan - Yanıt

the device is IP67 certified , so my guess is once you replaced the screen ... it won't be dust/water proof anymore

Ofer Arbeli - Yanıt

What in your opinion may need to be replaced if my screen continues to turn dark green and take almost 15 minutes to turn on and become active so I can unlock my phone?? I need help with this issue..
