Samsung Galaxy Alpha

DISASSEMBLING PROCEDURE 
Locate slot on back left side of cover.
Insert thumbnail into slot and lift up.
Once that edge is released, gently slide thumb around outer edge of back case and release back cover from connections on the back of the phone.
Make sure the device is powered down before moving forward.
Locate the slot at the base of the battery and insert your thumb.
Push slightly toward the battery and out, away from the phone to free the battery.
Skip this step if you're only replacing the screen. Removing these screws is not necessary for screen replacement, but is important for accessing other components.
Using the J000 tip of the Phillips screwdriver, remove all 12 3mm screws that surround the back of the phone.
Slightly warm up the front panle with hot air gun. Do not over heat
MAKE SURE you have thoroughly heated the adhesive before attempting to pry the screen off.
Do not press on the back of the phone while attempting to lift the screen. This will create cracks in the glass.
At the bottom of the touch screen, under the menu buttons, there are connections that can be easily broken. When taking the adhesive of the bottom section be very careful and make sure to work slowly.
Slide opening pick around perimeter of glass, making sure not to push edge too far under the screen.
Gently pry the screen up and lift off.
Make sure to lift the top of the screen only, so you don't break the button connections on the bottom of the phone.
Find the plastic clips on the side of the battery slot.
Using a Plastic Opening Tool, release the clips by pulling up inside the crevasse in the plastic walls and separate the two pieces.
For this step you will want to use two tools. One to pull up and the other to hold the gap open.
Using the Phillips #00 screwdriver remove the two 3mm screws.
Using your fingers or a Metal Tweezer, apply slight pressure and pry up each of the four pin connectors shown in the picture.
