Kindle Fire Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).

The rear case is very easy to open, granting trouble-free access to the internals.

All the fasteners found inside are Phillips #0 screws—one non-proprietary screwdriver is all you need.

The LCD is not fused to the display, making replacement an easy task, if necessary.

Simplistic design and limited functionality means fewer components and less headache for disassembly.

A decent amount of adhesive is used on the battery and motherboard, meaning some prying and gentle working is required for disassembly.

The glass panel is fused to the front plastic frame, meaning a heat gun is required for replacing cracked glass (or you have to replace both components together).
