6 steps
  1. Switching off your Samsung Galaxy Note 10+

    Before repairing, we recommend that you use our checklist to test the basic functions of your Galaxy Note 10+. This way you can check afterwards if your repair was successful.

    Switch off your Note 10+ after testing to avoid a potential short circuit.

    1. To do so, first press and hold the side and volume down key simultaneously for a few seconds.
    2. Tap on "Switch off" in the displayed menu.
    3. Your phone will now shut down completely within a few seconds.
  2. Heating up the back cover

    The Galaxy Note 10+ is opened via its back cover. It is made of glass and strongly glued. In order to detach it, you must first heat up the glue with hot air. Use a hot air device, like a heat gun or an ordinary hair dryer.

    1. Place your phone face down on a soft, clean surface.
    2. Move the hot air device evenly over the edge of the back cover.

    The rule of thumb: The edge of the back cover should only be heated up to a point where you can still touch it without burning your fingers.

    Since the edge of the back cover is curved, you should also heat it slightly from the side.

  3. Lifting up the back cover

    As soon as the edge of the back cover is warmed up sufficiently, you can start to carefully lift it up.

    Opening the Galaxy Note 10+ will void the manufacturer's warranty.

    1. Place a suction cup in the lower part of the back cover and pull it upwards. This way you'll create a narrow gap between backcover and the rear case.
    2. At the same time insert a flat, stable tool into the gap to enlarge it. We recommend the iFlex for this.

    The iFlex is made of thin, stable metal and has sharp edges. This makes it particularly easy to insert, but it can also easily leave scratches. We therefore recommend that you start with the iFlex and continue as early as possible with a plastic tool.Since the edge of the Note 10+ back cover is rounded the tool can be inserted the easiest way at the straight flat edges at the top and bottom of the device.

    In the next step you can completely detach and remove the back cover.

    Be careful not to insert your tool too far into the device to avoid damaging components.

    1. Remove the back cover from the rear case frame piece by piece by moving a plastic tool along the edge of the back cover. For this purpose we use the iPlastix.
    The iPlastix is made of thin, flexible plastic. Unlike the iFlex, it has no sharp edges.
    1. Insert flat plastic picks at the loosened points of the back cover frame at regular intervals, so that the adhesive cannot rebond.

    Warm up the glue with hot air at regular intervals to make it easier to loosen.

    1. One the back cover is entirely detached, unfold it carefully and put it aside.

  6. Preparing the new back cover

    Before you can apply your replacement back cover, you must prepare it by removing all seals and protective films from the outside and inside.

  7. Attaching the back cover

    Once you have finished repairing your Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, you need to reseal it.

    1. Put the prepared back cover on the display unit and press it firmly.
    2. To ensure that the adhesive bonds properly, we recommend that you re-heat the edge of the back cover.
    3. Finally, you should weigh down your device with books, for example. We use clamps for this purpose.
