Samsung Fascinate Take Apart Guide


We have just finished our take apart video guide for the Samsung Fascinate. We go through the process step by step and provide details of which tools are required. We had a lot of people requesting this who needed to replace parts to repair their phone, and it may also be of interest for those who are simply interested in seeing "what's under the hood".
