The Galaxy S23 Ultra is Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, but it resembles last year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra. Nevertheless, the newly launched handset brings a myriad of major upgrades over its predecessor.
For instance, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has undergone a radical camera setup and design overhaul. Other notable changes include the process of removing its battery.
YouTuber Zach from JerryRigEverything recently put the Galaxy S23 Ultra to the test. He was impressed by how seamless dismantling the phone with just one hand was.
Removing the battery from a smartphone has been an arduous task since the manufacturers use a strong adhesive that holds the battery in place. As a result, you need various tools and alcohol to ease the adhesive and remove the battery without damaging it.

Notably, Samsung has simplified this process with the Galaxy S23 Ultra. According to a report by GizmoChina, you can remove the handset’s battery after removing the front glass assembly, wireless charging coil, screws, and ribbon cables. You can effortlessly access and remove the 5,000mAh battery in just seconds.
In other words, even non-professionals and novices can remove the battery of the Galaxy S23 Ultra without breaking a sweat. However, Zach nearly tore off the ribbon cable during the teardown. Still, the YouTuber says this change was worth the wait.
In fact, Zach claims he has been waiting for eight years for the Korean tech giant to make this minor yet significant improvement. The more affordable Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ have pull-out tabs, which is a major sign that Samsung could be planning to make this feature standard in all its smartphones.
So, it will be interesting to see whether the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 will come with this significant improvement. Samsung is reportedly prepping to unveil its next-gen foldable phones sometime later this year.
