It seems that the heavily talked about Google Nexus 5 is not only an incredibly nice phone for its price, but it is extremely repairable as well, as shown in iFixit’s latest teardown of the device. The Nexus 5 received a repairability score of 8/10 from iFixit, mostly because of the fact that it uses minimal adhesive and uses a lot of modular components that are easily replaceable.
In fact, it seems that almost everything about the Nexus 5 is easy to replace except for the screen assembly, which is all glued together in a rather secure yet hard to replace manner. In other words, don’t drop your phone, or if you think you might, then get a screen protector.
