As we begin our teardown, we notice an extremely tight gap between the frame and the back glass, barely noticeable to the naked eye.
Manufacturing tolerances seem to keep shrinking—making it more difficult to open many of these glued-shut devices. Is this the price for IP68?
With a little heat, the iSclack, and an opening pick, we manage our way through the back cover adhesive.
Of course, the back cover is made of glass to increase the crackability rating of the device make wireless charging possible.
