It is recommended that all of the screws from the rear housing be removed. The most important one is that which holds a small panel in place over the home button flex cable but. Once this screw has been removed you can disconnect the cable underneath. This flex cable runs through the mid-frame and will be damaged if you fail to unplug it and maneuver it through the phone when pulling the display off from the front.

The Galaxy S5 is the first version that Samsung chose to design with this connector in such a seemingly unusual location. Once this flex cable has been unplugged you will want to heat the front of the device enough so that the adhesive becomes pliable. Since we are replacing the entire display in this situation it's not a big deal if it gets damaged in the process but we don't want any more glass fragments than necessary. It is also important that we do not damage the housing itself. Because of the water resistant design of the S5 you will notice that Samsung uses some fairly strong adhesive not only behind the display but also around the home button. Be careful when separating the button from the old lens or you might end up replacing that as well.

It is very important that all of the old glass fragments are removed from the phone. Installing your new Galaxy S5 display on top of any solid debris such as a rogue shard of glass or plastic can easily cause the AMOLED to become damaged during installation. It is also a good idea to plug in the new display and make sure that it works properly before allowing it to stick inside of the housing. Any damage that is caused by improper installation will void the manufacturers warranty and trying to remove the new screen after it has been adhered to the frame can easily cause physical damage which of course will not be the fault of whoever you bought the part from.
