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!
