LG G3 disassembled, rated 8/10 for repairability

LG G3 teardown

The LG G3 impressed a lot of us tech enthusiasts when it was announced earlier this week. With its 5.5-inch 2560×1440 display and incredibly thin bezels, it’s a dream phone for many. However, it’s also important to determine how the device is designed and how long it’ll last. Having a removable battery is great, but what about replacing a cracked display?

uBreakiFix decided to tear open an LG G3 to see exactly how it’s constructed. Inside you’ll find all the standard chips and components, but the site noted that there are quite a few contact-style connectors, which make performing repairs easier. Projects like replacing the G3′s display shouldn’t be much of a problem, unlike with the HTC One (M8).

The final repairability score of the G3 is an 8/10, which is pretty dang good. If you’re looking for a phone that’s both well put together and easy to repair, the LG G3 is a solid choice. Check out the source link for more photos and information on what’s really inside LG’s new flagship.
