Nexus 7 2nd Generation Repairability Score: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

The rear case is very easy to open, and requires minimal prying effort with a plastic opening tool to remove... But we cracked it, even though we were quite careful during the opening procedure.

All fasteners inside are Phillips screws—no security or proprietary screws here.

While the battery enclosure is easy to remove, some patient spudgering will be necessary to peel the battery off the tray.

The front glass is adhered to the display frame, meaning you'll need a heat gun to get the LCD out—or replace the whole front panel.
