Fairphone repairability score: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).

The battery can be replaced without any tools.

It's very easy to open and access the internal components.

There are only 8 screws in the entire device, all standard Phillips #000 (no proprietary or security).

The Fairphone comes with a set of free, open source repair manuals.

Several smaller components are soldered to the motherboard, increasing repair difficulty (front-facing camera, vibrator motor, LED flash, and headphone jack).

The glass is fused to both the display and the display frame, increasing repair costs.
