Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets have generally received positive reviews in the week since they were officially revealed to the public at MWC 2015, but there were 2 standard Galaxy features missing from the phones. After dropping support for MicroSD cards, Samsung also decided to move to a non-removable battery. It turns out though, that the battery can be removed, albeit with a fair amount of fiddling as seen after the break.
This isn’t an action that you are going to want to perform on the fly, there are a few different steps, and it involves removing screws and taking out a circuit board to get to the battery. Samsung included the guide to removing the battery in the Galaxy S6 manual more as a guide for technicians to replace the battery if found faulty. If your battery is flat, it’s probably much easier, safer and less time-consuming to just attach your handset to your charger or external battery pack to bring the phone back to life. Still, it’s good to know that the battery replacement procedure will be a relatively quick process if you have to take it to a Service Center.
