It's relatively easy to open the following tablets:
  • Galaxy Tab 2 7" GSM (GT-P3100)
  • Galaxy Note 8.0 GSM (GT-N5100)

I did it with very few tools (my nails and/or a tweezers for stamps).

Note that I disassemble electronic devices (like Replicant compatible smartphones) very often, but I'm probably not able to do it for the more complex devices like an iphone for instance.

Tablets often require a bit more force than phones though.

Once the tablets are opened, the battery connector is easily removable with a tweezers for stamps (it looks too tricky to do it bare hands as my hands aren't as flat as the connector).

However I didn't try removing the screws that holds the batteries and I didn't try buying a replacement.

If someone intends to buy a replacement it could be nice to see how it went.
