According to the teardown experts at iFixit, repairing the new phone should be relatively easy as long as there’s nothing wrong with the display.

The Nexus 5X scored 7 out of 10 for repairability thanks to its modular components and standard Phillips screws. The battery is also fairly easy to remove. But Replacing the LCD or Screenglass cover could be a bit of a pain because the LCD and Glasscover is fused together meaning if one cracks you’ll have to replace them both.

Google’s new Nexus Imprint fingerprint reader, which sits on the back of the device. The sensor connects to a chip using spring contacts, making repairs much easier. As for the phone’s new USB-C port, it’s firmly soldered to the motherboard, meaning you’ll likely need to swap the entire board out if your connector stops working.


The repairs on the new stock Android phone will be relatively easy, though it may still be worth signing up for Nexus Protect and letting the professionals take care of any hardware issues you run into.
