Anyone in Wellington versed in opening a Samsung Tablet (SM-T310) … I tried with a credit card but I think experience and the correct tool is best 🙂


Just want the lid off.

@klyster … thanks for that, and yes there are a couple of online videos and instructions for this.


I may attempt it myself … asked at a repair store for a quote and they wanted $35 just to open it 😂


A set of spudgers is only $5.00.

I replaced the battery in my Tab S 10.5, it was pretty easy.
I used ifixit as a guide.
As long as you're reasonably gentle, you'll be fine.
