Galaxy S22 Ultra Teardown - Can the S-Pen hole Leak.

Galaxy S22 Ultra Teardown - Can the S-Pen hole Leak.

Hello friends, I welcome you to our website, in which we keep bringing new posts every day. And we have brought a new post for you. Which is going to be of great use to you in your life.

    Today we're going to take a different look at the brand new Galaxy S22 Ultra... which we tested on its durability. In the previous video we had taken apart the S-Pen. That's what's left. And in today's video we're going to see how the S22 works inside and how they manage to be waterproof. There's a hole in the bottom of the S-Pen because it's one of the biggest holes ever seen in a smartphone to be waterproof. . Want to know what else is tight?

Now it's time to dive inside the Galaxy S22 Ultra to see inside the S-Pen cavity. let's get started. The S22 Ultra is probably the most powerful Android phone on the the moment. I say most powerful but remember this is only a super small increase from last year and a year ago. Personally I think smartphones tend to kind of plateau and any phone from the past 3 years is still pretty good and can compete in the same realm. The design also didn't change that much. On this S22 Ultra we have the adhesive attached glass back that Samsung has been using over the past 7 years with similar removal steps: with lots of heat and quite a bit of slicing, that softens the adhesive from around the edges. It is cut out, so we can get our first look inside the S22 Ultra. it is interesting

    Note that the glass back inside has 5 different camera circles all attached on the same metal lens body. Kind of cool We have the wireless charging coil back here. This guy can charge phone at 15 watts and reverse wireless charge other devices at about 5 watts. These copper wires are great and we'll get back to them in a minute. On the top of the phone is the 9 normal Philips head screws holding everything down. They are the same size which is convenient. Yes I can take apart the metal plate that contains the NFC pad and a Lego-style connector, and then unplugged its own Lego-style connector along with the battery. At this point the top plastic also loosens. Then we can go south and 6 . The head screws of the Silver Phillips are holding the bottom down. At first glance I thought this time around the lower loudspeaker there might not be any balls inside, but it turns out they all fell inside the unit from here on the side of the still got them. With plastic gone, I'm going to have 3 super . Remove the long extension ribbon that connects the top board with the bottom board. And three more screws that hold the charging port board in place. The SIM card tray can be removed after removing the bottom board. The 45-watt USB-C port is a must-have with a red rubber ring around the tip to help protect what penetrates. One more thing water can get inside the phone here is the bottom of the loudspeaker Samsung is once again using rubber and a waterproof mesh to keep water out which is all very securely glued to the frame of the phone. Samsung is pretty much a master of glue, like you'll see in a minute, but when it comes to waterproof screens, it's totally okay and a legitimate purpose to use a strong adhesive. The same thing goes for the microphone hole mesh. Before we can examine the waterproofing of the S-Pen, let's remove the motherboard. I would unplug the S-Pen charger, S-Pen screen digitizer, along with the front facing camera. Then the motherboard is free. It's interesting that with the motherboard out we can now unplug and detach the camera units and it really just goes to show how much real estate is devoted to these cameras

    inside the phone. They take up an impressive amount of space. 12 in camera block. Above is the megapixel wide angle camera which does not have OIS. Then the main camera of 108 megapixels center which has OIS. The 10 megapixel 3x telephoto also has OIS. And finally the big boy unit D is a 10 megapixel 10x at the bottom. is a telephoto camera that also has optical image stabilization but itb is encapsulated internally inside the periscope because sensor a . But there is a 90 degree angle from that rear lens. I took apart one of these in my Galaxy S20 video if you want to see how it works, but it's really anti-jiggle. The motherboard is also dual stacked. Lots of technology in complete super small form factor. Top loudspeakers also have their own balls. The speaker has balls in two places and I'm no expert on ball-to-speaker ratios but Samsung clearly thinks having too many balls is a good thing. They help the speaker sound louder than it really is because there is more surface area inside for the sound to resonate. The frame is milled out of aluminum, which is probably one of the reasons it got so much strength during the bend test. Lastly, let's check out the S-Pen enclosure so we can work on this battery. Forever Samsung has been extremely extreme with how they put the battery in their phone. I'll drip some isopropyl alcohol on here to start softening the adhesive when we look at how the S-Pen enclosure is made waterproof. The S-Pen is charged by this small copper coil at the top. Energy from the motherboard goes to the coil and is wirelessly transferred to the copper coil on the tip of the S-Pen and the other end of the pen to the small capacitor below, the closest part to the bottom of the phone. It is interesting to see how it works. Now, when milling the body of the S22 Ultra, it would have been extremely difficult and costly to drill only S-Pen sized holes through the middle of the block. Make the difficulty align everything properly. Also if it were

    Simply a hole drilled into the metal will no longer be able to charge wirelessly. So to solve those two issues, charging and inflation, Samsung has actually made its S-Pen compartment with a thick piece of plastic glued down at the top of the watertight hole, which is smart. This saves time and money and still allows them to charge the S-Pen while the phone is inside. There is a small piece of rubber on the S-Pen to protect the tip of the end of the channel from always hitting the metal. Keeps from leveling. But yes, it sounds solid to me. And the adhesive making the plastic waterproof feels just as strong on the S-Pen hole as it does on all other ip68 entry points. So thumbs up for that. Adhesive is generally a good thing. Now every smartphone manufacturer uses some adhesive on the battery as well. Don't get me wrong, adhesive is ideal. Apple uses Magic Pull Tab, and everyone else likes OnePlus, usually uses enough of that adhesive that the battery can be removed by hand...usually. However, Samsung locks its battery like it's going to space. There's more white web here than an entire Spiderman movie, like a straight jacket of glue. And yes, I think Samsung has had bad experiences with batteries, but when they use an apocalyptic amount of adhesive, it makes the battery very hard to be recycled at the end of its lifespan. At this point lithium batteries are 95% reusable in phones and electric vehicles. But they can only be recycled if it's easy to separate call them from the rest of the material inside. It would be very worthwhile for Samsung to implement better form of planetary adhesion. It will also benefit repairability. Of course, but with Samsung selling 250 million phones every year, recycling is very important.

    As the equipment runs out. We have to think long term. There is a copper heat pipe under the battery through the screen designed to drain the heat out of the motherboard, but yes, for me personally, the recycling aspect is very important. I wish Samsung was designing its phones in a way that facilitates the end-of-life experience. So even though I don't need to upgrade my two and a half year old phone at the moment, when the time comes, I probably won't pick up Samsung phones until they better engage their batteries. There are so many great phones out there to choose from so there's no need to choose one that makes recycling difficult. And, you know I really hate to say it, but Apple is looking pretty environmentally sound with their new refurbishment program, longevity, and end-of-life experience. So an iPhone is not off the table. It sounds a bit dirty to say, but I said it. Luckily, I don't need to fix this any time soon. My current phone is still working great. But however, one phone that isn't working great is this one. Normally when I reassemble my teardowns they work, but this time after some closer inspection, it looks like I've sliced ​​through the Never Display Ribbon Extensions
