    Hi all,

    how can I Open the Phone to Change the battery? I removed the screws and used a sucker to pull the Glass up...but nothing Happens...no gap to put in a spudger or so...

    heating didn't help.

    I have the Sandstone White edition... can this be the reason? Looks like the backcover is really stiff...

    regards, mitch

    Instead of asking the community, why don't you Google it?
    A small hint. Look at sites like iFixit.

    thats what i did...several Videos...they all say sligthly pulling the glass an using a spudger or Plektron in the opening gap..

    but nothing happens when pulling... feels like it's heavily glued...

    did the same thing on several iphones (4,5,6) and it wad easy to pull the glass up to get a Gap...

    isn't the reason for a community to ask aorund if someone experienced the same and if there are any ideas for a solution?

    i have seen the respective one...He uses metall tools...i also tried it this way but i cannot enter between Glass and Backcover...

    Main question is If the Design of the frame ist different between Sandstone White and normal edition...

    i have a very small Metall Line in the frame..maybe this is the reason for not beeing able to get in...

    hast anyone tried to Open a Sandstone White edition?

    regards, mitch

    OnePlus CS can change the battery for you. They'll even be able to rebuild the device after that!

    reaching to OnePlus would have been way better choice than doing it yourselves.
