Surprise! Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Battery Is Removable.

Much of the churn over Samsung’s new S6 line has been over the loss of both the Micro-SD Card and ability to remove/replace battery. Well, the latter capability exists, it’s found on page 138 of Samsung’s manual.

XDA Developers forum members discovered and be-forewarned, Samsung clearly states that removing the battery should be done by your service provider or an authorized repair agent. Any damage done, will not be covered by the warranty.

For future buyers of the S6 line, place this in your favorite Reader in the event down the road you feel the inkling to take on the challenge. Not personally recommended!

The steps:

1. Remove the SIM card tray from the device before starting battery removal

2. Remove the back cover

3. Loosen and remove the screws that line the perimeter of the device

4. Remove the circuit board (pictured above)

5. Disconnect the battery connector

6. Remove the battery

    Every Battery in almost every gadget (easy or hard) is removable…The point was it was user removable before.
    Do you really know anything about gadgets or just find a hot story and paste it in your own words…?

    1. Fair point. Not everyone understands that, as indicated by the many that immediately after the unpack event posted disappointment that Samsung was making a phone with short life span. This reassures longevity / peace of mind. Thanks for the read and feedback.
