The Motorola Droid 4 earns itself a not-so-stellar repairability score of 4 out of 10.

The lack of security or proprietary screws is a welcome sight.

The LCD is not fused to the glass, which will save money to anyone who is unfortunate enough to drop their Droid.

The battery is user removable, but a significant amount of effort is required compared to earlier Droids.

Keyboard contacts are located on the motherboard, making keyboard replacement costly and difficult.

Tons of glue adheres the glue that is securing the glue to the glue that holds the phone together.

You have to take apart the entire phone to get to the front glass (which is most susceptible to fracture), and you'll have to replace the touchscreen controller in addition to the glass when performing the repair.
