Samsung Galaxy Note7 Repairability Score: 4 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).

Many components are modular and can be replaced independently.

Improved cable routing means the charging port board can be removed without disassembling the display.

The battery can be removed without first ousting the motherboard, but tough adhesive and a glued-on rear panel make replacement very difficult.

Front and back glass make for double the crackability, and strong adhesive on the rear glass makes it very difficult to gain entry into the device.

Because of the curved screen, replacing the front glass without destroying the display is probably impossible.
