Motorola Moto X Repairability Score: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

Pressure contacts and cable connectors make the modular components (cameras, buttons, headphone jack and speakers) easy to replace.

The Moto X uses a single kind of screw, although it's a fairly uncommon size (T3).

The taped-in battery is less accessible than we'd like, but at least it's near the top of the stack once you get the rear cover off (as opposed to the HTC One).

The digitizer is fused to the display, increasing repair costs for a cracked screen. But the display midframe can be separated, potentially lowering the cost of the replacement part.

Sticky adhesive on the back cover is annoying and will slow opening the phone.
