Is this easier to repair than previous models

Being that the soft buttons are no longer attached to the charge port, i would think this would make changing out a charge port easier since no removal of the screen is nessicary, and other than the fingerprint sensor on the back glass with its flex cable, can anyone see why this would be easier or harder than previous models?

Don't know, guess we will have to wait for the tear down.

I work for a repair company i just wanted other opinions on a repairability standpoint, most our parts we order would be the daughter board with charge port included.

joshr45, in that case, definitely looks like an easier repair.
