Nexus 6 gets an iFixit teardown treatment

Google Nexus 6 is officially here and this means it’s time for the folks at iFixit to get their hands on the device and tear its components apart.

Starting with the back cover, there are no screws involved to open the back cover of the device so the folks at iFixit ended up with picks to pry open the back cover of the device which comes with little adhesive.

There’s a big 3,220 mAh underneath to power the device featuring an inductive charging coil. iFixit ratings range from 1 to 10 with one being the most difficult to repair. As far as the Nexus 6 is concerned, the phablet got a repairability score of 7 out of 10, making the handset fairly easy to repair so don’t panic if you run across any problems.

The whole device is locked on with T3 screws, which is uncommon, but it’s easy to get a screw driver to open it up. Furthermore, the presence of pressure contacts and cable connectors make it fairly easy to replace components such as camera, headphone jack, etc.

Unfortunately, the battery is glued-in so it might be a little difficult to replace. Secondly, several important components such as SIM slot, speaker, USB port, etc. are soldered in the motherboard so they are really difficult to replace.

There are no comments for this at the moment.
