The latest device to go on iFixit's surgery table is the Google Nexus 5X. The LG-made device scored a solid 7 out of 10 on their repairability scale. Here's a quote with their summary, but be sure to hit up the source link for their full video and write-up:

  • Nexus 5X Repairability Score: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).
  • Many components are modular and can be replaced independently.
  • Standard Phillips screws means a driver is easy to find.
  • The battery isn't immediately user accessible but isn't too challenging, or too adhered, to replace.
  • Fused display assembly–glass and LCD will need to be replaced together if one or the other breaks.
They must have performed their dissection on October 21st, because they playfully included several "Back to the Future" DeLorean toys in their screenshot. Clever and funny!
