Use the iSesamo opening tool to assist in removing the midframe cover from the OnePlus 2 smartphone.
 
Step 5
 
With the fine-tip curved tweezers remove the piece of black tape covering the battery connector, and then with the nylon spudger disconnect the battery from the motherboard.
 
Use the iSesamo opening tool, or the triangle opening tool, to carefully pry up the 3.8 V, 3,300 mAh OnePlus 2 battery that is held in place with small amount of adhesive.

Remove the following Phillips screw that helps secure the OnePlus 2 motherboard in place.
 
With the fine-tip curved tweezers remove the small piece of black tape, and make sure the alert slider located on the side of the smartphone is pushed up.
 
Use the nylon spudger to detach the handful of cables still keeping the motherboard in place.

With the nylon spudger, through the front-facing camera hole, push the display assembly away from the midframe to create separation.
 
Now with a couple of triangle opening tools, and plenty of heat, work around the OnePlus 2 LCD and Touch Screen Assembly and free it from the midframe.
