Default [Q] Is the back panel removable?

Avid tinkerer here. I love to see the teardowns of my devices I own. I can't find any teardowns online for the Tab S online. I tried to gently take the back panel off, but wimped out when it required a bit of force. Just out of curiousity's sake, has anyone managed to peer at the guts of this device yet?

I'm in the same boat. Did have a meek prod at it, but lost my nerve. ...

I had the spudger working around USB port...but it felt unusually ridgid, and I was fearful I would break a clip. Long and short...I too nancied out.

Only if you hold it under water for 5 minutes first ☺.

P. S. Don't do this ^. I'm sure someone will post a teardown on YouTube sometime soon.

The back is clipped on like the Note 3, but also has glue all the way around the edges. It's not strong and pries off fairly easily.
