Issue Description

The back cover is coming loose and it’s bulging. It appears the glue has loosened. Perhaps the battery is swelling. Can the battery be replaced?
If I remove the back cover, can the cover be returned to normal?

Hello @douglaso.ozdfe6,

Welcome to Republic’s Member Community! :slight_smile:

The back of the Galaxy S8 is held together by adhesive. If the battery is causing it to separate I would strongly suggest you stop using the phone and have it looked at for repair or replacement. A swollen battery could be very dangerous. :grimacing:

If you want to try fixing it yourself, here is a resource for that:

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:
