Nexus 9 Repairability: 3 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

The rear case is secured with clips, so it can be easily removed without heat or tools (just don't lose your rear-facing camera).

The battery is easy to get to, but glued in place. Thankfully, the adhesive is not so strong as to require heat to separate.

The interior is a maze of tape and thin, delicate cables, making disassembly and reassembly difficult and perilous.

The LCD is fused to the front glass, so you'll need to replace both components in the event of a cracked screen.

On top of that, the display glass is insanely very solidly glued to the midframe, making the replacement difficult unless you can source the whole assembly.
