Eject the SIM and Micro SD Card Tray.
 
Smoothly remove the Samsung Galaxy Note7 S Pen.
 
Step 3 (Samsung Galaxy Note7 Rear Glass Panel)
 
The Note7 rear glass panel is glued on solidly and is a tight fit within the frame. Apply heat to soften the adhesive.
 
With the precision knife create enough space to insert a playing card.
 
Attack the adhesive and carefully dislodge the rear glass from the chassis.

Pry the Galaxy Note7 battery connector off the motherboard.
 
Remove the single speaker with built in antenna.
 
Step 6 (Samsung Galaxy Note7 Battery)
 
The Note7 battery is well wedged and adhered in place. Use the spudger to muscle it free from the adhesive securing it to the midframe.
 
Extricate the 3500 milliampere-hour (mAh) Samsung Galaxy Note7 battery.
 
Step 7 (Samsung Galaxy Note7 Motherboard)
 
Disconnect the bevy of cables from the Galaxy Note7 motherboard.
 
Remove the following 2 Phillips screws.
 
Lift up the motherboard and detach the daughterboard connector on its underside, then extract it from the Note7 phablet.

Step 11 (Samsung Galaxy Note7 Volume Buttons Cable and Power Button Cable)
 
With the tweezers in hand, take out the Note7 volume buttons cable, followed by the power button cable. The power and volume button covers are trapped within the outer case and can’t be removed.
 
Step 12 (Samsung Galaxy Note7 Display Assembly)
 
Begin to free the Note7 display assembly by using the heat gun to warm up the adhesive.
 
Use playing cards to attack the adhesive securing the display assembly to the Note7’s midframe.
 
Take your time and apply additional heat as needed.
 
Once you have sliced through the adhesive, be mindful of the home button and the cables for the bottom buttons when decoupling the Note7 screen from the midframe.
