View the LG G4 under X-Ray in iFixIt’s latest teardown


lg g4 teardown

The guys at iFixIt got their hands on the LG G4 to do nothing other than tear it down to its bare bits. So what’s inside? Everything is as you’d expect: LG has crafted a neat smartphone with solid internals. It’s not an amazing, revolutionary engineering job, but it doesn’t need to be.

The phone scored an 8/10 on repairability, where 10 is easiest. The only points take off were due to the device’s glass + display fushion, which means you have to replace both the display and the cover glass if either part breaks. Beside that, there are a minimum amount of tools needed to break into this thing, and you’re sure to find an easy fix for any future mishaps.

One bonus thing you might want to jump through the source link for is a look at all of these components in X-Ray. The X-Ray doesn’t reveal any alien technology, of course, but it does look pretty cool.

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.

    1. I hope so

      Android M is shaping up to be an awesome release

      1. its great, i’m on the dev edition on my Nexus 6. A few bugs, sure, but AWESOME in so many ways.

  3. Short of hearing about any catastrophic issues with it, the G4 will become my next phone at the end of this month.

  4. If you have a tear down of all of the parts, what is the point of an x-ray? What more does it add?

    Things are getting so stupid with x-rays, drop tests, water test, blender tests, why not a cat scan and an MRI? Anyone up for a flame-thrower test?

  5. What a respectful nod to its consumers from LG. Bravo for continuing to support Micro SD and a user-replaceable battery. They didn’t put an expiration date on this device and they made it easier to repair than their rivals. A truly user-friendly flagship.
