Here we are with a broken, water damaged/bricked Samsung Galaxy S.

I've taken it apart before, so why not now.

Lets go!

  1. The phone itself!
    • The phone itself!

    • The battery!

    • It shows 1500mAh, decent.

    • also the manufacturing date is shown.

    • I added a piece of sticky tack, to cover up the IMEI code, again showing how hi-tec i am!

    • This is the point of no return when it comes to warranty.

    • But that's okay, i'm using this phone for spares anyways.

    • Sticky tack

    • Screws, 7 to be exact!

    • Here comes the first tricky part. it's easiest to start right under the volume button, and work your way from there.

    • Be extremely careful if you are using metal tools like i am. it will easily damage components if you accidentally jam it in.

    • And it's off!

    • Lets see the innards of this thing.

    • The back camera.

    • And the front facing camera

    • The speaker, actually quite large.

    • Water detector on the plastic cover, as you can see, this is a water damaged phone. normally you would see a purple pattern.

    • Contacts, probably for antennas.

    • Better close ups of the components.

    • Taking off the speaker.

    • Remember to lift the tab on me!

    • And it's off!

    • Now for the camera!

    • Both the rear and front camera are a single component.

    • Lift the connector in picture 2 carefully! lots of components under it.

    Agregar Comentario

    • Now for the motherboard!

    • Detach all (4) of these to get the motherboard out.

    • Done! (do not try to remove yet)

    • Now detach the power button, its held down by a little bit of glue, not a big deal.

    • Lift it carefully, making sure no connectors are stuck on. Especially the one marked red.

    Agregar Comentario

    • Front/back

    • Flash memory.

    • CPU running at 1Ghz, but can be overclocked.

    • Volume buttons.

    • Ill add more specific specs when i get around to it.

    • Removing the cable for sim/sd card slot..

    • And it's off.

    • Bad white balance, sorry!

    Agregar Comentario

    • The simcard/sd card slot.

    • And the stuff underneath.

    Agregar Comentario

    • Now for the metal Shielding on the back! again, more specs coming (hopefully) soon.

    Agregar Comentario

    • Parts parts parts!

    • And a bad white balance..

    Agregar Comentario

    • Now for the component that holds the headphone jack, earpiece and both proximity and light sensor.

    • There is a cool app "androsensor" that lets you access all the sensors in your phone!

    • This thing quite literally just pulls off. you can remove it without any special tools!

    • Be careful not to tug on the cables too hard! there is some glue, but it peels right off.

    Agregar Comentario

    • Now for the bottom portion, including the Mic, vibrating engine and the antenna board.

    • I couldn't get it off completely, but i can give you a good picture of what it looks, lets see..

    • We seem to be connected together!

    Agregar Comentario

    • Disconnect, unplug, take off..

    Agregar Comentario

    • Be extremely careful when taking off these little boards, they're on tight! and they like to bend around.

    Agregar Comentario

    • see that? the AMOLED display is actually transparent!

    • Can't go farther than this without a heat gun that I don't have. I tried removing the bezel, but with no luck.

    • That's about it! Thank you for reading, and please give me feedback!

    • This is my first teardown, and pictures were taken with a functional Galaxy s phone.
