Nexus S Repairability Score: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

Battery is very easily replaceable -- just remove the back cover to swap it out.

The motherboard comes out easily once you're inside, as it's held in place by regular screws and connectors.

A lot of the phone's components are modular, meaning that they're simpler to replace, but will cost more as replacement parts.

Front panel is attached with adhesive instead of screws, so it's harder to take off than on the iPhone.

If you shatter the front panel glass, the SAMOLED has to be replaced as well -- they're fused together.
