  • I knew as soon as I saw how aggressive you were at the bottom the it was going to be home button or soft keys. Gotta be real careful at the bottom, otherwise this repair is very easy.

  • I actually found a J7 prime that was in the middle of the road. The screen was obliterated and fell off. I have no idea if it still works and I don't want to get a screen for it if it doesn't. I tried plugging it in without the screen and nothing happened.

  • tbh it kinda sucks that the J7 prime has a led notification light, whereas my J5 pro doesn't even have one. I don't think any of the J pro series phones have a led notification light for that matter. And the J pro series is supposed to be a step up from the regular J series and J prime series phones /:

  • i dont buy mid tier phones expecting it to be repairable. i run them untill they are dead. for what i do for a living i tend to break phones every year or so anyways

  • I lost respect for you after watching this video. Any professional tech knows to see a how to before even accepting a repair if they have never touch that phone.

  • I'm a repair tech by trade, I work on these all the time. These phones are far easier to work on than the majority of flagships on the market, and the parts are readily available (at least in the US). If you want an unrepairable design, look at a pixel 3... I dread working on those. Bottom line, anything can be repaired if you try hard enough. There isn't a phone on the market that can't be fixed.

  • Samsung makes rework kits for all of their phones. They're basically like an exact cut out of adhesive that you need for the phone model you're working on. I'm not sure if you'll be able to get them from Samsung or even third party either, but if you can the repair is a lot better and is water resistant.

    Joseph AsadJoseph AsadÅr sedan
  • Unrepairable design? Isn't it a little unfair to suggest that in the title of a video that clearly proves otherwise? Is it not common to run into small issues when working on mobile devices like this? Additionally, the adhesive isn't there for the lols, it's to keep the glass/screen from popping out of place. This is all fairly common for mobile phones and similar products. And finally, why on Earth would you go through the trouble of repairing a Galaxy J7 Prime anyways, considering the screen still accepted input even after some damage occurred. It's not like the J7 Prime costa the same as a flagship and thus worth spending the time and money on to fix something that's purely cosmetic.

  • i thought for a second at 5:03, you were causing damage to the battery with that metal pry tool. good thing it was only the adhesive being exposed.
