The Motorola Droid 4 has received the ceremonial post-launch teardown by iFixit, revealing a few bumps in the road to user serviceability. Along with all the standard parts from CPU to LTE chip, the guys at iFixit discovered that the latest Droid features a keyboard that is hardwired to the phone’s motherboard, a problem for anyone that may need to replace the keypad down the line. If a few keys cease to work the only solution is replacing the entire motherboard of the device (at which point getting an entirely new phone seems like a better choice).
The crew also discovered that the Droid 4’s non-removable battery can in fact be pried loose with a bit of force and also located the handset’s 16GB of on-board flash storage. You can see the full teardown for yourself by heading over to the source link below.
