Step Lines

[* black] Samsung Galaxy S7 Repairability Score: '''3 out of 10''' (10 is easiest to repair).
[* green] Many components are modular and can be replaced independently.
[* yellow] Unlike the S6 Edge, the battery can be removed without first ousting the motherboard—but tough adhesive and a glued-on rear panel make replacement more difficult than necessary.
[* red] The display needs to be removed (and likely destroyed) if you want to replace the USB port.
[* red] Front and back glass make for double the crackability, and strong adhesive on the rear glass makes it very difficult to gain entry into the device.
[* red] Replacing the glass without destroying the display is probably impossible.
