Or… you can simply use an exacto knife and pry the lenses out without taking the entire HMD apart!

You can insert a scalpel type knife between the lens and the housing and work your way around.

I’ve got to agree . This is the absolute worst way to do what’s essentially a simple operation. So many ways this could go wrong for the user if they’re not careful.

This reeks of click bait re-purposing of the tear-down coverage.

Ian Kennedy -

This has to be the most overly complicated approach for a VERY simple fix. Takes about 5 seconds to pop out the lenses by carefully prying at the flat edge with a butter knife, exacto knife, etc.

Agreed! what rubbish…

Lionel Van Niekerk -

We are showing you the most technical and professional way to take out the lens. Remember this is just a guide. You can use whichever way you most comfortable to take apart your HTC.
