Amazon Fire Phone Repairability: 3 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

External, non-proprietary screws means no adhesive holding the device together, and an easier time getting in.

While adhesive tabs on the battery ease its removal, it's still a pretty tricky job—if you break the (flimsy) pull tabs, you'll be heating and prying.

Tons of cables and connectors make disassembly tedious and reassembly difficult.

The four Dynamic Perspective cameras are encased in glue. Replacement will mean heat and cutting.

A replacement display assembly will need to include four replacement cameras ($$), or will require a lot of extra work transferring cameras.

The Fire Phone is not modular; several components share cables—this will increase the cost of replacement parts.
