The back cover and/or display displays of many portable devices such as smartphones and tablets are often integrated with the main assembly. If the back cover assembly or the phone display needs to be removed (e.g., to access the battery) or needs to be replaced, the device owner needs to approach a service center for such work since specialized tools are often required for removal. This disclosure describes a mechanism for easy removal of back cover or display of a device without impacting aesthetics of the device. Per the techniques of this disclosure, a slot is machined or molded on the adhesive landing between the display/ back cover and the SIM tray opening. The slot can be accessed easily with the SIM tray tool or a paperclip.
