Step Lines

[* black] HTC One Repairability Score: '''One out of 10''' (10 is easiest to repair)
[* red] Very, very difficult (impossible?) to open the device without damaging the rear case. This makes every component extremely difficult to replace.
[* red] Battery is buried beneath the logic board and adhered to the midframe, hindering its replacement.
[* red] The display assembly cannot be replaced without removing the rear case—this will make the most common repair, a damaged screen, nearly impossible.
[* red] Copper tape on many components is difficult to remove and replace.
[* green] Solid external construction improves durability.
