Step 3. Unscrew the screws

Using a screwdriver (Phillips 1.5 mm PH000), unscrew 15 screws.

⚠️ Try not to touch the camera. The camera is quite fragile! If you leave prints or other marks on the lens, it will be difficult enough to clean the lens, and the quality of the images may deteriorate. 

ⓘ Be sure to note the location of the screws before disassembling. When assembling the device, screwing the screw in the wrong place may damage the device or its part. To avoid damage, the removed screws and individual pieces (as gaskets or brackets) must be laid out in the appropriate order, or the screws and their holes in the phone must be marked with colored markers.
