Nexus 6 teardown reveals it’s been bolted down tight


nexus 6 teardown

Teardown time! This morning we get a look at the innards of the Nexus 6, Google and Motorola’s flagship developer and enthusiast smartphone for 2014. The teardown reveals a chassis that’s been bolted down with an overwhelming amount of screws, though a steady hand and patience are enough to eradicate that situation.

The Nexus 6 scored a 7/10 on merits of repairability (10 being easiest to repair), with the only negative knocks being a few components hard-soldered to the motherboard and a display with a digitizer infused (making it a bit more expensive to replace a display should you crack it). Otherwise, it looks like Motorola used the same clean and tight assembly that they’ve become known for and you shouldn’t have any worries about the quality of this thing beneath the surface.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
