Today I will be taking apart and explaining
most of the components inside of the Smartphone: LG V10. Remove the back cover, and pop out
the battery. Then you’ll see 14 screws that are all along the back plastic housing. I
will link tools and parts down in the video description below. Once those 14 screws are
removed you can take your plastic pry tool and pry between the back plastic housing and
the frame of the phone. Make sure you don’t pry on that mother board because its right
underneath that housing, and you don’t want to damage any of those components on the board
itself. Once it’s all unclipped from the side you can lift off the back plastic panel.
To replace the camera lens it’s actually pretty easy. You can press against the backside
of it from the outside and it will push though the frame. I will link these down in the video
description as well. Pretty easy to replace the camera lens if it ever gets cracked or
broken. Here you can see the finger print scanner as well as the actual buttons themselves.
You can see the gold contact points that just rest up against the mother board as well.
That’s how it receives its communication from the phone. To re-install the camera lens
you just put it back in the frame and snap it down, and you press the buttons down into
the frame of the lens as well. Make sure it clicks and you’re good to start working
on the inside of the phone. So the front facing camera is actually pretty interesting. Its
2 lenses. It’s a 5Megapixel camera and it looks suspiciously like the skull of a medical
star wars droid. The reason it has two cameras is because if you use one camera it gives
you more of a close-up shot. If you use both cameras it’s the same size (same amount
of pixels) but it gives you more of a perspective. It lets you see more things around you. To
snap it back into place just press it down like a little Lego. The headphone jack is
also replaceable. You can unsnap the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the motherboard.
Then you can lift the motherboard out away from the phone. You can see the back of the
front camera. The rear camera is attached the same way with a little Lego type connector.
I’m just going to unsnap that from the main board. This is a 16 mega pixel camera with
optical image stabilization. I’m going to go ahead and snap that back into place just
like little Lego. Making sure it clicks in. Here’s the charging port. It is not replaceable.
Unless you know how to sauter. Here’s one of the three microphones down at the bottom.
Here’s another one. Both of those are visible from the outside of the phone. The one that
is not visible is the one right above the camera. You can tell that they are microphones
by the grills that are underneath on the backside of the motherboard. This is what allows the
phone to do its three dimensional sound recording. The SD card and Sim card tray is not removable
it is sautered onto the mainboard as well. To remove these side bars there are 3 more
screws on each side. Remove those. You can see here that the bar will slide up and down
a little bit. It is locked in place by the bottom plastic piece. So I’m going to take
my pry tool and remove the adhesive between the plastic and the frame of the screen. Then
I can pop that off away from the phone. Same thing with the other side. Just slide it down
and pull it out. These are pretty high quality. They feel very nice in your hands. Then I’m
going to remove the top plastic piece as well from the phone. Now this is your screen it
is an IPS LCD display. What you have here this particular component on the screen is
the glass on the front. The LCD in the middle and the frame on the back, and if you can
buy it like this that will make your life so much easier. Now if you can only by the
glass and the LCD without the frame you’re going to have to use a bunch of heat to separate
the glass and the LCD from the frame itself. Then re-adhere the LCD and the glass to the
frame. It is a significantly longer process and the old LCD will not survive, so it is
much easier if you buy the component just like this. I will link the parts and tools
down in the video description so check that out. See if I can save you some time by linking
the whole unit, instead of just the glass and the LCD. Now that that’s installed again
we can put back on the plastic piece as well as the side bars, left and right, make sure
you get those screws back in there. The screws line up with the top of the phone. Then the
bottom plastic piece goes in. Then you can set the mother board down into the frame.
Making sure that the ribbon cables aren’t pinched underneath. You got the headphone
jack the LCD ribbon cable. Then the motherboard will sit down pretty snugly. You can snap
on the back plastic piece and get those 14 screws screwed into place. Then you can snap
the back plastic piece back in. Turn the phone on and everything is good. If you have any
