The Surface Duo earns a 2 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
Displays and back glass covers can be replaced without disassembling any other components.
Batteries are glued and require extensive disassembly to service.
The USB-C port is soldered directly to the main board.
Uncommon tri-point screws secure key components.
Delicate OLED panels are not well protected from accidental prying, yet must be removed for most repairs.
Stubborn glue at all entry points complicates any repair attempt.
