Video Overview

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Huawei Mate Xs, use our service manual.

    Final Thoughts
    • Many components are modular and can be replaced independently.
    • The fragile folding display is replaceable, if you're determined.
    • Battery replacements are straightforward, but unnecessarily difficult thanks to the herculean adhesive.
    • Every repair starts (and ends) with stubborn, glued-on outer covers.
    • The charging port is soldered directly to the main board.

Hi! Have have a 2 year old Mate Xs and I took it to the Huawei Service Center and they said the mainboard needs to be replaced. Is it possible to replace just the on/off button in the mainboard? Also, is there a way to access the hard drive data even if the mainboard is not working well? Please let me know. My email is Thank you very much!
