Samsung Galaxy S5 Repairability Score: 5 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).
The battery is incredibly easy to remove and replace.
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 considerable amount of heat to remove without cracking the glass or cutting cables.
Once you get the device open, several components are modular and fairly easy to replace, such as the cameras, headphone jack, vibrator motor, and speakers.
Replacing anything other than the battery requires first removing the display, risking extra damage on the way to a repair.
