The crafty folks from iFixit got their hands on the brand recent LG Nexus 5X and gave it the mandatory teardown treatment. Google’s entry level smartphone walked away with the stellar repairability score of 7, thus meaning that it is quite easy to mdiscontinue if broken.

iFixit gave LG props for making the Nexus 5X with modular components that are easy to replace if necessary. Components are put together via standard Phillips screws, so tools are easy to find too.

A perfect repairability score eluded the smartphone due to battery that’s not easily replaceable by users, as well as display that’s fused to the glass. Such setup requires both parts to be replaced in case the display gets damaged.

As is the case with most high profile teardowns, iFixit has also uploaded a video review of the process. See it below.
