How to Remove the back of ZTE ZMax phone?
Is the back of this phone glued on?
I can get it to come off some from the top and bottom of the phone, but it feels like i'am going to break it if I pry to hard.
Just hold the single button on the side of phone until it turns back on. May take about 30 sec to a minute
You arent supposed to open the back of the ZTE ZMAX. They can be opened but it has the high risk of damaging the phone. T-Mobile and MetroPCS stopped selling these phones because people were either breaking their devices or hurting themselves trying to open and remove the battery. I wouldn't recommend opening it unless it is professionally done.
It would be nice if the mfg of tablets and sellers of those tablets would collectively get together and fix what ever the problem is with Android based OS and tablet batteries. Go to U Tube or Google this problem and you see at once the extent of this issue. When someone tells me to push the on/off button and the sound bar at the same time to "fix" a "reset" of the battery on a 2 month old tablet I become a bit peeved. I even saw a U tube the other day on how to open the back, disconnect the battery wire connection and reconnect in order to reset the battery. Another showed how to "hard wire" as USB cable directly to the tablet so to avoid the entire problem of loss of USB charging ability and issues connected to battery function. When it comes to tablets - if you look at them closely it becomes apparent that all of these are made by the same mfg just different names and or software in the initial package. All seem to have USB charging issues, and battery functionality problems.
Good luck to all
No glue. You just need to release the clips.
There are small indentions on the sides of the back. You can't see them. They are on the inside. You will need like a phone pry tool to lift it. Once you have a small corner lifted you can run your tool along the sides and it will pop the clips free.
It Has no glue, I opened my zte xmax using a knife and small screwdriver prying little by little
You need to take out the sd & sim card slots then use something very thin to work around it but there's no guarantee that it would be able to put back on so i herd from a few people on YouTube.

Learn how to insert or remove the battery on the ZTE ZMAX.
Insert / remove battery
This device does NOT have a removable battery. Do not attempt to remove the battery or the back cover. If your device will not turn on or you need to restart the device, follow these steps:
If you are unsure if your battery is charged, connect your device to the charger.
Press and hold the Power key for up to 15 seconds.
Wait as the device restarts.
Make sure all the screws are out. I had 8 in mine. Carefully. Lift up closest to glass the case matches a normal style backing of covers. It may feel like its going to break for sure. But i used a small flat. carefully went around the whole edge and i got the cover to come up. But just know you are exposing all the components and you will probably void all warranties. And im not responsible for anything you do or did wrong
