Final Thoughts
  • There are no proprietary screws.
  • The OnePlus 5’s display is held on by easy to dispatch reusable plastic clips.
  • Most components such as the cameras and USBC/headphone jack flex cable are modular and easy to access.
  • The battery has a pull tab making removal easy, but the motherboard must be removed to access it.
  • The display and glass are fused and the home button is integrated into the display assembly making repair of all three of these parts more complicated and expensive.

Wonderful video as usual. If one were to take theirs apart would it be as 'tight' once it was back together?

I think the buttons edges are a little sharp and I'm tempted to take it apart to put a little bevel on them.

I'd like it if the screen didn't end up being loose or have gaps around the back cover.

Link for screen please? My screen is broken and I need one but can't find the screen for OnePlus 5 in iFixit store!

I appreciate the video, but I like ifixit for the manual-like write-ups. If I am ever unfortunate enough to have to tear mine down, I will make one.
