Samsung Galaxy S4

Keep press the END key to turn off the phone (if turned on).
Pull out the back cover of the cell phone with the help of a plastic opening tool.
Pull up the battery.
Remove the SIM Card by sliding it towards the bottom of the device.
Using your fingernail push through the hole at the top of the memory card holder, so it can be slid out.
Remove the 10 4.0 mm Phillips screws on the back of the phone using the #00 Phillips screwdriver. Not needed, but Tweezers can be helpful in removing the screws from their holes, as their size makes removal a tad difficult.
Starting at the USB port, slide a plastic tool around the perimeter of the phone between the rear housing and frame. As you work your way around the edge you will feel the clips release.
Carefully separate the rear housing and the mid-frame to reveal the inside of the phone.
Remove the 2 flex cables shown that attach to the USB board, Tweezers can be especially helpful here.
Gently pry underneath the charging port using the plastic opening tool to separate it from the double sided tape below.
Once its released, gently lift the main board and remove the USB board containing the charging port.
