Your Samsung Galaxy A53 5G discharges much too fast? You notice a significant drop in performance?

In this detailed photo tutorial, we will show you step by step how you can easily replace your battery yourself.

Once you open your Galaxy its specified IP67 certification will expire.

If your battery is inflated, keep in mind that the gas inside the battery is flammable and can escape. If you do not feel confident enough, have it replaced at a repair shop.

To prevent the case and screen from scratches, make sure your workspace is clean and level.

We wish you good luck with your repair!

    Use our checklist to test the basic functions of your Galaxy A53 5G before repairing. This way you can check afterwards if your repair was successful.

    1. Press and hold the side and volume down button simultaneously for a few seconds.
    2. Tap on Power off in the displayed menu.
  2. Heating up the back cover

    Heat gun

    The edge of the back cover is heavily glued. Use a heat gun or an ordinary hair dryer to heat it sufficiently.
    1. Heat the edge of the back cover by running the hot air device evenly over it.
    Used tools
  3. Lifting up the back cover

    As an alternative to the suction cup, we can recommend the iSclack, which requires less force to lift up the back cover.

    The iFlex can be inserted particularly well between the back cover and the screen unit due to its sharp edges.

    1. Attach a suction cup to the lower edge of the back cover and pull it upwards to create a narrow gap.
    2. At the same time, insert a flat tool into the gap between the back cover and the screen unit.

    In order to prevent the glue of the back cover from bonding again, we recommend sliding flat plastic picks under the back cover at regular intervals.

    To avoid damaging the camera module, you should not insert your tool too far. At this point, the hard plastic pick is therefore particularly suitable.

    1. Drive your tool completely around the edge of the back cover to loosen it piece by piece.
    2. Put the detached back cover aside.

  5. Unscrewing the board cover

    We recommend using a screw storage, such as our magnetic pad, to keep all disassembled parts and screws safe and organized.

    1. Remove the eight Phillips screws from the board cover and place them in the screw storage.
  6. Disconnecting the battery

    1. Carefully detach the orange battery connector with a spudger from the motherboard.

    The battery of the A53 5G is heavily glued. In order to loosen it safely, you need to heat up the glue in advance.

    We recommend testing the new battery and other basic functions at this point. Again, use our checklist for this and the internal Samsung test menu, which you call up via the code *#0*#.

    If something doesn't work properly, double-check that everything is installed and connected correctly.

    1. Connect your Galaxy to the mains in order to see if the replacement battery is charging.
  17. Attaching a new adhesive frame (optional)

    If the adhesive frame is still in good condition, you do not need to install a new one. However, if it has defects or no longer sticks properly, we recommend that you use a new adhesive frame.

    1. Align the new adhesive frame with the back cover. The cutouts in the film will help you.
    2. Peel off the carrier film from the bottom of the adhesive frame and press it onto the edge of the back cover.
    3. Now carefully peel off the remaining protective films from the top of the adhesive frame.
