Introduction

The Vivo X7 Plus is hard to open and has a single unit display, but is moderately repairable due to its accessible battery. The phone ultimately earns a 7 out of 10 on the repairability scale.

    • T2 screws on the bottom, but tough clips secure the case, making the screws superfluous.

    • Tough prying procedure is made slightly simpler by the larger form factor, more space between clips and more flexibility.

    • Interior reference.

    • Battery is readily accessible and pull tabs make removal easy.

    • Instructions are somewhat ambiguous, but it's hard to mess it up.

    • Removal of the speaker/antenna assembly is immediately possible.

    • The next layer of components out are: Interconnect cable, antenna interconnect cable, button cable, brackets, SIM eject lever, and front facing camera.

    • Interconnect cable attached to the rear of the daughterboard is annoying.

    • Removal of daughterboard and interconnect cable.

    • The daughterboard is relatively bare, but two high-wear mechanical parts make repair more expensive for either headphone jack or charging port replacement.

    • Next removable components are the home button bracket, followed by home button.

    • The only upper component immediately removable is the vibrator bracket.

    • But not the vibrator, which is trapped under the motherboard.

    • Motherboard is next to come out.

    • Once the motherboard is removed, the rear-facing camera can be removed. Also the rubber bumper on the flash/proximity sensor portion of the main board.

    • The final components off of the display assembly are the vibrator and speaker.

    • Last-out display that is fused and mounted to a frame means a cracked screen is a time-consuming, expensive repair.

    • The Vivo X7 Plus earns a 7 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):

    • Battery is fairly easily accessible and removable.

    • Parts could be more modular, especially mechanical/high wear components.

    • The opening procedure is very tough, but easier than on the smaller model.

    • The single unit display assembly is annoying to reach, and will be a costly part.

    • Manufacturer does not provide user-accessible repair documentation.
