Help inside on how to open the back cover to access the SD card


Saturday 26th of May 2012 / androidforums.com
Am I the only one having issues opening the back? I am a nail biter and tried a few things, but totally fearful of breaking it. Not too happy that it is right where the power button is. I don't want to turn mine on yet until I get a card in and bumped it already. Anyone have the perfect solution? I tried a dime a penny, screwdriver(not much force) and a few others.

2.1 Still On Track to Make the X10 Slightly Less Dated


Thursday 21st of October 2010 / phandroid.com
Ok, now that my jolly ribbing is out of the way.The Sony Ericsson Product Blog has posted some video demos of the XPERIA X10 running 2.1 and all the little bonuses it brings. The XPERIA team really seems to be focusing on the smoothness of the experience, which is something nobody can gripe against. The following YouTube video was snatched directly from the Sony Blog and highlights the improvements in the Timescape application.Users can expect the X10 update to start around the end of this month and continue well into November.[via Sony Ericsson]

Need to make the back cover less slippery


Sunday 19th of February 2012 / droidforums.net
The back cover of the Galaxy Nexus is super slippery. Because of the slipperiness and the light weight, the Nexus slides off my hands at like 5 degrees of incline, as opposed to the 30 degrees I was used to on my OG Droid.I'm looking for a skin or a super-thin cover that can make it stick more to my hands and can also accommodate an extended battery. Right now I'm using this Xentris Soft Shell cover I picked up in a Verizon store. It added a couple mm of width on the sides and it's still pretty slippery. I'd like something smaller, if it exists.I'm considering a Gelaskin because of the review by Raul[1], but I don't know whether it works on an extended battery, and the available skins are a bit garish.Anybody have any suggestions?Thanks in advance1:

Couldn't HTC make the back cover any harder to remove?


Thursday 17th of March 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
Talk about a pain in the a$$ attempting to remove the back battery cover. The sales rep couldn't do it, so I tried and I damn near broke it attempting to remove it. That's my only complaint with the phone so far. Other than that I love it.

How to remove the back cover?


Saturday 23rd of March 2013 / androidtablets.net
My tablet has been feeling so loose in the back it's getting very annoying when I hold it, as if the back cover was going to fall off. The bottom left corner of the tablet makes all sorts of creaks and squeaks. Is there a way to remove the back cover with a credit card? (as a tool)

How to pull the back cover off?


Monday 20th of December 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
I know this is a dumb question but I can't take the back cover of this phone off. I saw a video and they make it look easy. Every time I put my finger in the slot I feel like I am about to break it and i am too scared to even try it like that. I don't have a Best Buy anywhere near me (the closest one is about 2.5hours). Sorry for this weird question.

Removing the back cover


Monday 05th of August 2013 / androidforums.com
Here's a tip that I learned from my days in owning the D3. To remove the back cover of the S4, instead of destroying your fingernails, use a credit card. Put the edge of the CC in the notch where the manual says to use your fingernail. Slip it in then slide it all the way around the phone. The back cover will come off rather easily.

I have a small gap in the back cover near the flash on my S5.


Tuesday 22nd of July 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Does anyone else have this issue? I'm concerned that it won't be water resistant. I already had the back replaced because of an issue with the charging cover and back cover having gaps and not closing properly. imgur: the simple image sharer I've highlighted the area in question in red. There's a small but noticeable gap. When I open the back cover, it also always tells me to check the back cover. Is this intended? Or is it supposed to go away after a certain amount of time?

I found an easy way to remove the back cover


Thursday 13th of November 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I found an easy way to remove the back cover using the S Pen. 1. Pull the S Pen out.2. Hold the phone face down in your hand.3. Partially reinsert the vs S Pen tip first (like normal) about ½".4. Gently (VERY GENTLY) raise the other end of the S Pen up slightly until the back cover pops off in a couple spots.5. Use your fingers to remove the rest of the cover. What do you think? Easy?
