Easier to throw it away: Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ received the top three for maintainability

The guys from iFixit disassembled the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, checking the location of the components of the smartphone and its

maintainability.

What is known

Inside, the Galaxy Note 10+ is similar to the Google Pixel. Samsung placed the motherboard in the upper part of the device, which allowed to make the battery wider, but the engineers had to connect the motherboard and daughter board with cables. The battery is under the connection and does not hold on to a kind word, but on strong glue.

As a result, iFixit put Galaxy Note 10+ 3 pointsout of 10 for maintainability. To remove the battery, repairmen will have to wade through the wires and peel the battery from strong glue. In addition, to replace the display, you will need "either a complete dismantling, or replacing half the phone." Of the minuses, iFixit also noted that the analysis of the smartphone has to start with peeling off the glass panel.
