    Hey my Samsung galaxy s7 edge back rear glass broke because the battery got swollen. A new battery is inserted but the back bottom half of glass not there so the battery is partly exposed. Will this effect the usage of my phone, and will my battery be affected by this and the camera?

    So the innards of the phone are open to atmosphere?

    Having a back exposed like that means any dust or water can get into the phone , my suggestion replace the back ASAP

    it is near impossible for us to know if there will be a problem. just use the phone as normal and see if there are issues. one thing, if the opening is wide enough, then dust and other foreign can enter and cause problems. make sure you use a good case. IMO, when the battery was replaced, the frame should have be bent back into shape.

    Unless you have the back replaced (by a Samsung-qualified shop), the phone is no longer dust or water resistant. And that could cause a problem. (If it's raining, or even foggy, and you have the phone exposed, it will be water-damaged.)
