[* black] Samsung Galaxy S5 Repairability Score: '''5 out of 10''' (10 is easiest to repair).
[* green] The battery is incredibly easy to remove and replace.
[* yellow] The display is now one of the first components out, making replacements a little faster. However, it is held in with a significant amount of adhesive and requires very careful and persistent prying and a significant amount of heat to remove without cracking the glass or cutting cables.
[* yellow] Once you get the device open, several components are modular and fairly easy to replace, such as both cameras, headphone jack, vibrator motor, and speakers.
[* red] Replacing anything other than the battery requires first removing the displaydisplay, risking extra damage on the way to a repair.
