Nintendo Switch Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is the easiest to repair)

Aside from the digitizer, screws are used instead of adhesive to hold components in place.

Most components, including the analog sticks, game cartridge reader, and headphone jack are modular and can be replaced.

Batteries, while adhered to their housing, are modular and can be replaced by end users.

The digitizer and display are not fused, reducing the cost of repair but increasing complexity.

Proprietary tri-point screws restrict users from opening the Switch.

Replacing a display or digitizer requires heating and prying against strong adhesive.
