Samsung's Galaxy Fold earns a 2 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):

A single Phillips driver takes care of all the screws.

Many components are modular and can be replaced independently.

The mechanics involved in the fold are likely to wear over time, causing stress to hinges and display, necessitating eventual replacement.

The fragility of the main display means you'll almost certainly be replacing it before long—a pricey repair.

Battery replacements are possible, but unnecessarily difficult—solvents help, but risk damage to the display supports.

Glued-down glass both front and back means greater risk of breakage, and makes repairs difficult to start.
