The folks over at iFixit are like the tech world's version of "Leonardo Da Vinci," only for gadgets instead of cadavers. They are at it again, and this time they have the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android Tablet on the operating table. In the end, after disassembling the device, they gave it a repair-ability score of 8 out of 10. That's a respectable number. Here are some of the stats from their analysis:
- 16 connectors – a boon for repairability!
- The front glass and LCD can be separated and replaced individually (take that iPhone!)
- Easily replaceable battery, even compared to the Nexus 7
- Unscrewable EMI shield – first time seen by iFixit
