Before Getting Started
Some Samsung S7 Edge screens may have arrived pre-installed in a new frame. Is this is the case, you will need to move all of your phone’s internal components and hook them up to a new battery. Make sure that you have all parts you need before starting.
Also, please note that if the frame is damaged, you will need to replace it otherwise, the screen won’t mount properly. Also, make sure to take extra care with heavily shattered screens – glass is very sharp so, a good idea is to apply tape over the screen before you get started.
