Google started shipping its itsÂ Pixel and Pixel XL phones earlier this week, and the team at iFixit documented their teardown, showing off the insides of the company’s new device.
One of the big takeaways is the repair score, a six out of ten. Thatâ€™s not quite as good as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (which score a seven), but itâ€™s far better than theÂ Samsung Galaxy S7 (which scored a three) and the Nexus 6P (two our of ten).
One of the highlights that the team points to is the modular nature of the phone: many of the components can be easily replaced, which makes the phone easier to repair. They also highlighted the HTC battery with a pull tab, which makes it easy to remove and replace, as well as the phoneâ€™s front 8 megapixel and back 12.3 megapixel cameras.
The phone isn’t flawless when it comes to fixability: they pointed out that the display comes in a thin frame, which is easy to bend or damage.
