If you are not snapping photos of your friends, family, and pets with your Samsung Epic 4G phone anymore because your camera is broken, then you may want to considering replacing it.

This guide details how to regain the function of a camera lens through replacement—even after the lens breaks and temporarily takes away your ability to make new memories.

The actual lens of a camera is the main component behind a photo’s quality, angles, and lighting. As the person behind the camera, however, you get to decide the vision behind the photo. Luckily, with a phone like the Samsung Epic 4G , replacing your broken camera is not a difficult process.

If you want to find out how capable you are of replacing your own camera lens, then follow this guide.

Before you start the repair, make sure you turn off your device using the power button located on the left side.
