Introduction

Unlike most tablets, the Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 has a display assembly that is easy to remove, a big positive when looking at repair. The battery is incredibly difficult to remove, however, giving the tablet a 7 out of 10 on the repairability scale.

    • The battery is glued to the rear case by very strong adhesive.

    • Heat, adhesive removal fluid, and much prying, the battery is removed.

      • Frustrating that an inevitable repair/replacement would be this hard, but at least it isn't blocking other components' replacement.

    • The bracket over the speaker and button/headphone jack cable has two different kinds of screws, Torx and Phillips, making removal obnoxious.

    • Removable in parallel with the battery are: lower speaker, speaker/antennas, brackets, and microphone bumper.

      • SIM tray can be removed while the device is sealed, obviously.

    • The final components out of the rear case are fairly modular:

      • SIM reader and vibrator assembly

      • Headphone jack and button cable assembly

      • Front and rear facing cameras

      • Motherboard, unfortunately has a soldered-on charging port. That means a more expensive repair for a common failure point.

      • Most components are modular and not overly complex.

      • The battery is extremely difficult to remove, even with heat and prying.

      • The charging port is soldered to the motherboard, making replacement of this high-use component expensive.
