I am giving this phone a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being easiest to repair, and 1 the hardest.

Flex cable used for LCD

Rear panel easily removable, as well as battery.

Earpiece speaker removal requires soldering.

LCD is glued into the front bezel.

Volume buttons and SD card reader are soldered permanently fixed onto the motherboard.

QWERTY keypad is unrepairable, and liquid can easily get trapped inside, causing shorts and issues.

The rear panel with the antennas and external speaker were accidentally left out of this pic. Also, the cotton ball was used just to clean up the plastic. It doesn't come with the phone :-)
