How to attach Samsung Galaxy S9 Front Glass

Hello,

First, I’ll let you know. I am not a fixer, a hobbyist, or technologically savvy at all.

I recently purchased a new front glass for the Galaxy S9 and the Iopener from IFIXIT and have followed all the steps to replace the front glass via their instruction page as well as their youtube channel. Things were off to a rough start with removing the back glass, but eventually, I got it. I followed the subsequent steps and now I am at the final step attaching the front glass.

I can not figure out how to attach the wire strip that comes off the front glass. Is it magnetized? Did I miss a step? Is my phone more damaged than I originally thought? How do we actually connect the front glass to the phone?

I am starting to think that this was a venture too big for me and just waster $200+ dollars to save $70 and now ultimately will have to go buy a new phone.

Any assistance/hope that can be offered will be greatly appreciated.

-Cortney

Are you talking about the ASSEMBLY with the panel or the GLASS ONLY part? Glass only is just about impossible for inexperienced end users - even I have trouble with it and I’m no stranger to a difficult repair like that. The edge screen phones are well beyond my ability to pull off. If you bought the glass only part without a panel, don’t try unless you’re 110% comfortable with it - it is an art. I know how to do it on the thoroughly obsolete phones (S3/Note 2 age) but not Edge screen phones - I still need to learn how.

If you’re talking about the bare screen without a frame, this guide covers the job.

Hi @cortreagan

For the inexperienced tech, there is a much easier option. Instead of trying to attach this bare screen and hope it’ll work, try working with a frame assembly that comes with the screen already attached. Here is a link to parts that I trust for Samsung repairs (Premium parts are OEM from Samsung).

Best of luck finishing this repair!

I'd sooner do screen only, but as I said in my answer I'm comfortable with the screen only risk.

Unless the frame is beat up, I'd rather save the money - thanks but no thanks to those prices. Samsung beats you up enough as it is with the bare screen.

All original screen assemblies for the S9 come from Samsung with the screen pre-installed. For the extra money its totally worth it to know that its sealed to the same standards as a new Samsung S9 would be. As you put it, the edge screen phones are well beyond my ability to pull off, it is an art. I completely agree!

@refurbpro I took a shot on a S6 Edge+ panel I had from someone who broke 2 and I frankensteined one - my hope was I can get a piece of glass, LOCA glue and a UV light to get a nice screen cheap. My god is it hard and I almost had glass only - one bad slip and it's over. The water resistance is gone once it's been opened so I'm not too worried about a small error.

I can do it destructively but not non-destructively on Edge phones - which is why I'd get the bare screen if the price was substantially lower (it usually is, but you may need to wait on China).
