Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 gets the iFixit Teardown Treatment

The folks over at iFixit have given the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 one of their usual tear downs. Overall they give the new tablet a repairability score of 8 out of 10. Some of the highlights of the teardown are as follows:

 

  • 16 connectors – a boon for repairability!
  • The front glass and LCD can be separated and replaced individually (take that iPhone!)
  • Easily replaceable battery, even compared to the Nexus 7
  • Unscrewable EMI shield – first time seen by iFixit

 

One downside to note is that the battery capacity has been downgraded to 25.9 watt-hours, which was expected due to the device’s slimness. Is an easily repairable device a priority on your list? Hit up the comments and let us know what you think!
