Heat resistant glues are not unique.

I suspect the cost of application prohibits this idea however.

Your comment, Pubudu, reminds me of a time I broke a cell phone into several pieces by smashing it into a wall (long story). Yes, that's probably the only time I have seen the inside of my mobile device, too!

Excellent slide show.  I'm the very same Elizabeth.  I would be hard put to tear into any i-phone for those reasons.  I'm amazed at the assembly  and compact design.  Can anyone tell me what the design impact is?  I just wonder what knocks are survivable.

My design, I feel that this time Samsun will have a problem cause that apple has come out from its traditional size of the phone.

@designest: I don't think applying glue is a good idea since it might melt due to the heat that the phone consumes while being in use.

There's no pull tab on the battery for the same reason you now have one less tomatoe in your salad on an airplane, or no key hole on the passenger side of your car.  And phones are manfuactured like car dashboard harnesses.  Not meant to be maintained, but meant to be manufactured at the cheapest price.

I'm surprised there are even screws in the device.  I'd use glue or some type of mechanical locking system to redcue cost even further.

@Murray: Good point but that is how it was from the beginning itself isn't it ? Anyway there weren't any battery related issues reported isn't it ?
