    Hi guys!

    Is it possible to install by myself 3g or lte-modem to non-WWAN model?

    Thanks for advice!

    In order for that work you also need to have the antennas installed. I don't know whether a non-WWAN model is configured with those antennas, but I doubt it.

    Actually antennae are not the only problem. SIM slot and/or WWAN slot may be on a separate sub-board, not included it no WWAN version. Also, mainboard may require WWAN activation, which opens another can of worms.

    Hi, I have a basic version of Q555, no LTE and only 64GB drive. Surprisingly it does have a sim reader slot, not sure about antenas.

    I could not istall LTE card and test whether it works as it should, I have no spare em7305 right now

    Could you please describe the way you've disassembled Q555?

    Quite straightforward - take back cover off, it is just clipped on (like on old Samsung smartphones). It open all internals for disassembly.

    What kind of the screen do you have, matte or glare?

    I have matte screen and it is not really touch responsive, boring. I am thinking to take matte coating off (it is just kinda plastic matte screen protector, seems to be easy to get rid off).

    My device has glare screen. Touch responsibility is very good.
