  • Samsung Galaxy S5 Teardown

    @thomas adhesive like this is an automatic lowering and although it has a replaceable battery, that won't help if anything else breaks.

  • MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2012 Teardown

    I find it hard to believe that there is any need to use adhesive for the battery. The battery has enough space to have screw mounts.

  • Xbox One Teardown

    Why didn't you do a teardown of the controller or the Kinect?

  • iPod Touch 5th Generation Teardown

    I think the repairability score is too high. The iPads get lower repairability scores, yet the batteries are not soldered on, the glass and display are not fused together, and there are more removable components.
