iFixit Gives Galaxy Note 10.1 a Teardown, Rates Repairability

The DIY repair pros over at iFixit have done it again with another detailed product teardown. With the disastrously difficult to repair MacBook Pro Retina still haunting our dreams, Samsung's newly released Galaxy Note 10.1 scores refreshingly high on the repairability scale. Scoring an excellent 8 out of 10, the Note can be repaired inexpensively without the need for specialized tools.One of the great things about the Note, according to iFixit, is its easy access interior. With only a handful of Phillips screws and clips to release, the Note is secure enough to keep meddlesome kids out, but easy enough to open for anybody looking to make repairs. Once inside, users will notice a modular layout with 16 connectors, allowing for easy component replacement and access.

For more specifics on the Galaxy Note innards and some insight on how to repair yours, head on over to the teardown at iFixit.

    idroidI doubt that a tablet with such quality manufacturing will need a repair.

    There is no such thing as an indestructible tablet. I'd rather pay for a $30 repair job than a full tablet replacement. Thank you.

    I think Samsung's lawyers should have used the phrase, "Our products' repairability and internal design are vastly different than Apple's." in court.
