Motorola Razr Repairability Score is Unsurprisingly Bad
iFixit has printed its official teardown for the Motorola Razr, giving it what would possibly presumably be the bottom repairability rating I’ve seen. It’s not within the negatives, as I’m undecided that’s even attainable, however on a 1 by means of 10 scale, it doesn’t get any decrease than what the Razr scored.
Coming in a whopping 1 out of 10 on the dimensions, iFixit lists an entire bunch of issues that those that wish to restore their very own units could run into. Keep in thoughts, the poor of us who work at service facilities will even run into these points, although, Motorola may have a number of particular methods for them. Regardless, this will likely be a tricky cookie of a telephone to crack for anybody doing repairs on it.
In iFixit’s abstract, the primary points are glued-on outer covers, battery alternative requires near-total disassembly, the charging port is soldered on to the primary board, and “complex construction and multiple flex cable booby traps” makes for a troublesome restore.
Personally, I don’t envy anybody who has to restore this telephone. On the upside, we get to get pleasure from some lovely photographs of its guts. I really like intestine photographs.
Props go to iFixit for the helpful dandy video teardown, too! Gorgeous.
