The Realme C25 features a plastic back cover secured with adhesive and clips to the phone’s mid-frame. Several crucial components like the battery, motherboard, display assembly, and camera modules are housed within the mid-frame. Opening the phone requires separating the back cover from the mid-frame using specialized tools and following a specific procedure.

Safety Precautions Before Opening

Before embarking on this process, ensure you have a clean and well-lit workspace. Additionally, gather the necessary tools, which typically include a prying tool like a guitar pick, a suction cup, a set of precision screwdrivers, and an anti-static wristband. An anti-static wristband helps to dissipate any static electricity that could potentially damage sensitive electronic components during the disassembly process.

Power Down and Remove the SIM Card Tray

For safety reasons, it’s vital to power down your Realme C25 completely before attempting to open it. Locate the power button and hold it down until the power menu appears on the screen. Select the “Power off” option and wait for the phone to shut down entirely. Next, use the SIM card ejector tool (usually included in the phone’s packaging) to remove the SIM card tray.

Heating the Back Cover (Optional)

Some phone models with a strong adhesive holding the back cover might benefit from applying heat to soften the adhesive. A hair dryer set to low heat can be used to gently warm the back cover for a few minutes. Be mindful not to overheat the phone, as this could damage internal components.

Applying the Prying Tool (Carefully!)

Now comes the delicate task of separating the back cover from the mid-frame. Insert the prying tool, such as a guitar pick, along the seam between the back cover and the mid-frame. It’s crucial to be very gentle and avoid prying excessively, as this could cause cracks or damage to the back cover or the mid-frame.

Using the Suction Cup (for Better Grip)

For better leverage and control, utilize a suction cup firmly attached to the back cover. Gently pull on the suction cup while simultaneously inserting the prying tool in different sections around the back cover to gradually loosen the adhesive holding it in place.

Releasing the Clips (Listen for Clicks)

As you pry open the back cover, you might hear clicking sounds. These clicks indicate the plastic clips that secure the back cover to the mid-frame releasing. Continue working your way around the phone’s perimeter, carefully releasing all the clips.

Be Cautious of Flex Cables (They’re Fragile!)

Once the back cover is partially loose, be extra cautious not to pull or yank it forcefully. Fragile ribbon cables connect the back cover components like the fingerprint sensor or the NFC module to the motherboard. Carefully disconnect these ribbon cables using their designated connectors before completely removing the back cover.
