Samsung Galaxy S10 not at all easy to repair, according to iFixit teardown

Pre-orders for the most recent Samsung Galaxy S10 territory end are finding some conclusion, and in case you're one of the many anticipating their new handsets, or anticipating getting one soon, you'll need to realize that it is so natural to fix the costly Android cell phones in the event that they break.

Teardown specialists iFixit got their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S10, the greater Galaxy S10 Plus and the more reasonable Galaxy S10e, and gave every one of the three the conventional treatment. While they utilized the Galaxy S10 and the S10e for the well ordered photograph teardown, the S10 Plus got a video dismantling.

Like most present day cell phones, iFixit found a ton of glue holding the pieces of the Samsung leads together, yet once you move beyond the paste, the rest is very measured. iFixit discovered it very simple to recover the boards off, after which a solitary Phillips-head screwdriver can be utilized to get the segments closing the motherboard off. That implies getting the motherboard supplanted, should the need emerge, will be genuinely straightforward.

That is the place the simplicity of repairability closes, however. iFixit found that the USB-C charging port has been fastened to the motherboard, making supplanting the charging port exceptionally troublesome.

Another normal fix issue for most cell phones is battery substitution, and Samsung has, sadly, stuck the battery down. While this makes supplanting it conceivable, iFixit discovered it somewhat hard to evacuate.

The greatest issue, however, is the new ultrasonic unique mark sensor incorporated with the front presentation. The teardown uncovers that the sensor has been combined into the screen, so in the event that anything turns out badly with it (like the glass breaking near the sensor, as The Verge uncovered), the whole glass front board should be changed. Also, that is likely going to be a costly prospect.
